How to use spanking in a sentence?

  1. Rebecca Ryan:

    If it were an effective strategy, you would either see no correlation between spanking and child behavior, or you would see a correlation that's the opposite of what you do see, what you see is a positive correlation between spanking and higher levels of behavior problems.

  4. Rebecca Ryan:

    Nobody has randomly assigned children to receive different types of parenting or different types of discipline strategies, per se. ... So it's difficult for anybody to say spanking a child causes that child later on to be more aggressive, even though there are theories to suggest that could be why the correlation exists, although all the evidence is correlational, there's little correlational evidence that it's an effective strategy, and if it were effective, Rebecca Ryan should see correlational evidence.

  5. Kelly Clarkson:
