This Is Going To Hurt Me More Than It Hurts You

This past Wednesday Maryanne and I hosted a parent chat on spanking. Most of the comments during the chat were from like-minded parents; however after reading some of the comments in the transcripts for the chat, I can see that there are a lot of parents who still believe that children are suffering from bad behavior because they are not being spanked on a regular basis. I've heard many parents throughout my 20 years of teaching parenting classes who still do not understand how detrimental corporal punishment can be to a child's development.

I would like to share a link to Chick Moorman's website and hopefully, you can subscribe to his very informative newsletter, Spirit Whisperer. Chick was a speaker at our parenting conference a few years ago, and was incredible.  I hope you will click on this link and read the #4 article  entitled, This Is Going To Hurt Me More Than It Hurts You, it gives a different perspective to the spanking issue:

If you are interested in more information on parenting issues, I co-host a parenting chat at with the Health and Lifestyles Writer, Maryanne Kocis-MacLeod, on the first and third Wednesdays of each month from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm.
There are also parenting classes that are offered throughout the year by CARE of Southeastern Michigan in locations throughout Macomb County. You can view upcoming classes, get more information, and register online at or call CARE at 586-541-0033.
