The long-term effects are real!
I know what you’re thinking: it seems like there’s always a new study that comes out telling us what we’re supposed to do and not do with our children. Do we feed our kids rice cereal? Give them cows milk before their first birthday? Let them make their own decisions even though their toddlers?
As confusing and (stressful) as this may all be, there’s yet another study that says the way we discipline our children might have long-term effects on their mental health. In other words, researchers are explaining why we should never, ever spank our kids. You'll be surprised as to why.
