My question to you, is did you actually read it? About 1/3 of the studies done still disagreed that spanking is harmful. That's a pretty big margin for error if we are to treat this as scientific fact. I also noticed that it refers to the type of spanking I was referring to as being harmful - that where the child is spanked constantly for everything. That's a no brainer there. In other words, pretty much supports what I agreed to. I do applaud your clever retort by calling me a brat though. Kudos.
