Notes from a Christian mother, part IV

Many opponents of spanking claim it is merely the ’easy option’ for parents struggling with their child’s misbehaviour – our Christian mother disagrees.

Many well-meaning parents may be wary of spanking their children because superficially it may seem too easy a way out, a quick option for their own sanity. They feel that if they only tried harder with their children, having more patience and giving them more time, then better behaviour would result.
