What a terribly written article and poorly conducted study. Correlation =/= Causation.

Psychologists have long known that spanking is bad for children, but this study doesn't prove, in any way, that spanking lowers IQ, just that spanking is linked to lower IQ

Yeah i don't really believe this study to be truly accurate but i had to look it up when it got a mention on the local news.

Exactly. And I can tell you why.

The more stupid a kid is, the more he/she gets spanked.
Spanking isn't the cause, it's the symptom.

Yeah... the ass being so close to the head... i can see why a whack makes you lose brain cells...

It's like everytime i bang my knee... I go a little bit blind

I mean it's not a freaking small proximity unless you've just fallen out of your mother
And if they decide to spank you then, frankly your parents are retarded and chances are you will be too anyway, leading them to prove their study

First, corporal punishment is extremely stressful and can become a chronic stressor for young children, who typically experience corporal punishment three or more times a week. For many it continues for years. The research found that the stress of corporal punishment shows up as an increase in post-traumatic stress symptoms such as being fearful that terrible things are about to happen and being easily startled. These symptoms are associated with lower IQ.


Post traumatic stress really is a huge thing. Just being under lots of continuous stress affects your IQ. I consider myself to be pretty intelligent and people around me would agree, though I wonder how I could be if not for the way my parents brought me up. In the past I was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress (my parents and I had a horrible relationship, though through counseling it's gotten better) and I know I did horribly in school at that time. I never was able to concentrate or focus and I had no aspirations other than to live in the moment and be happy because I never felt much joy. I wasn't constantly sad, just very numb.

EDIT: About the test though, it seemed kinda vague. I could see how while the kids are being spanked at home they could have problems, but lets say you get spanked and then it completely stops and you're never spanked and four years later you take a test....I doubt it would be that big a deal.

is it me, or does that graph only have a slightly negative correlation anyway. okay theres about 10 or so that fit the pattern that they were looking for.

it means nothing, you could probably get a similar result if you compared the iq and the distance between theeir asscheeks

The study is accurate in that it proves that children who mare spanked have lower IQs. It doesn't prove, as the article suggests, that the spanking is the cause of the lower IQ. There are likely other factors at play here, and it doesn't take a scientist to figure them out. For example IQ has a genetic component, and people with lower IQs may be more likely to smack their kids. The poor genetics would be the cause of the IQ however, not the spanking.

I have the benefit of have traveled the southern states.
I've heard parents say: "Come here, kid. Ima spank the stupid out of you."
So just imagine how stupid those kids would be if they weren't spanked at all!

Correlation =/= causation.

I'd chalk it up to more intelligent families thinking that spanking is below them, whereas moronic parents are just like "What did he do? I'mma beat his ass!" without knowing any other way to deal with kids.

Though I'm not saying that people that spank their kids are stupid, I just think it's more common.

I wouldn't doubt that the results are skewed, either. I'm sure that a lot of parents wholeheartedly denied ever laying a finger on their children.

What a mighty big bag of bullsh*t

I was spanked, and I'm better for it. Kept me in line. There's a difference bewteen "punishment" and "abuse" though.


Exactly. I could be quite the little bastard sometimes, and my mom or dad would spank me. But it was never more than about 3 whacks on the ass. And they'd never beat me.

Unless the children involved in the research were spanked by repeatedly smashing their face into a marble block, I doubt it would have any effect on their IQ at a later date.

My dad used to hit my brother's head, and he's pretty damn clever now. I think most of the people I know's parents hit them when they were younger, and they're all fine now.

i got spanked as a kid, and im a hell of a lot smarter than a lot of my friends who WERENT spanked. spanking builds character, gives respect, and toughens you up. spank your kids and make sure they arent pussies

Also theres a big difference between you getting in trouble and getting a spanking, and your parents coming home drunk and beating you with a belt for what you are gonna do.

BS. The reason kids these days are little cunts is because of this philosophy that spanking is altogether bad and avoidable.

Well i believe children respond differently to different punishments. For some its worst to be grounded than spanked and the opposite for others.

I remember being given the option when i was young. I would take the spank'n and be back playing in an hour.

So IMO you can't expect one type of punishment to work on all children.
