I don't believe in spanking or in any other kind of hitting. I don't really see how you can teach your child that hitting is wrong, but then hit them. I also think it causes psychological and emotional damage to the child.
However, my partner thinks that spanking is okay in certain scenerios.
I'm wondering if anyone knows of a good book that talks about the affects of spanking. To be fair to my partner, I'm mostly interested in a book that will talk about the pros and cons, but anything that delves into the behavioral affects would be a great start.

I KNOW THAT YOU WERE LOOKING FOR ANSWERS WITH BOOKS, BUT I DONT KNOW OF ANY. I DO KNOW HOWEVER THAT I COMMEND YOU AND TRYING TO COMPROMISE AND WORK THROUGH THIS WITH YOUR PARTNER. I ADMIRE YOU FOR THAT. I ALSO HAVE TO SAY THAT THE COMMENT ABOUT SPANKING BOOKS WAS REALLY FUNNY. WITH AS SENSATIVE THIS TOPIC CAN BE, THE LITTLE BIT OF HUMOR WAS NICE.
