  • The findings, published in the fall 2012 Journal of Family and Marriage by researchers Andrea Gromoske and Kathryn Maguire-Jack, looked specifically at the fallout from spanking kids under 1-year-old in a sample of 3,870 families across the country.

  • Who spanks a baby before one? That is just crazy! If you want to read a truly interesting article, not junk from yahoo's shine then read this article from the Smithsonian that suggests a childs morality is in place before age 2 www.smithsonianmag.com/science-nature/Are-Babies-Born-Good-183837741.html
