I also remember reading this article awhile back. Maybe some here will find it interesting in light of the AP case

Then there are what some researchers call “lumping problems”—when studies are reported as being about spanking but aren’t really about spanking. A 2002 meta-analysis scrutinized data from 88 studies and reported that although physical punishment makes kids more immediately compliant, it also makes them more aggressive in the short and long term and more likely to engage in criminal behavior as adults. This analysis has been cited as some of the strongest, most comprehensive evidence that spanking is dangerous, but it actually looked at far more than just spanking: In 16 percent of the studies, parents were hitting their kids with objects, not with the palms of their hands. It also included punishments such as pinching and slapping. It doesn’t surprise me that kids who are hit with objects or pinched or slapped end up more screwed up than kids who aren’t. But it’s misleading to conclude that these kids were worse off because they were spanked.

All of them that have been performed throughout the years?


The article was published around 2011 from what I remember it did gather quite a few studies, of course not all that would be impossible but enough imo to show some of the studies have baseline flaws in their grouping

Thought this show was pretty boring most of the season. it didn't really pick up steam until after the winter solider.

Wasn't there a study done awhile ago on how flawed the research on spanking is? I think the article on it was on Slate (one of the few times I've read that site) but I remember there being a lot of talk about how hard it is to even get a baseline with the parents that hit their kids
