John Wiley & Sons The Case Against Spanking: How to Discipline Your Child Without Hitting

Irwin Hyman, an expert in the field of home and school discipline, explains in a passionate and compelling style why spanking or hitting children is abusive, destructive, and counterproductive. As an antidote he offers parents and teachers constructive methods of healthy discipline they can use to raise happy and emotionally stable children.

The Case Against Spanking is written for the "less than perfect" parent or teacher who wants to learn how to discipline children without using corporal punishment. The author documents the long-term negative effects of spanking - how it brutalizes kids and creates violent adults - and gives common sense advice on alternative methods for dealing with such everyday situations as what to do when your toddler becomes fussy in the grocery store or how to react if your child runs into the street.

I think this book is a must read for every parent and grandparent. It opens our eyes to see how important it is to discipline our children in constructive, positive ways rather than just hitting them. Thank you for making this available on a Christian Book List.
