Spanking, or the act of hitting children on their bottoms, is a common punishment in many cultures around the world. However, recently child psychologists have begun questioning whether spanking is a good form of punishment. Although a consensus has yet to be reached, there are a number of advantages to using spanking as a disciplinary tool.
One of the most apparent advantages of spanking is that it helps children understand the difference between right and wrong. Spanking helps children remember that an act is not allowed by creating a psychological association between a particular forbidden act and the traumatic experience of being spanked. In establishing this association, children come to understand what is right and what is wrong.
Additionally, spanking is far more effective than other types of discipline. Unlike time-outs, which remove children from a situation and force them to stay in a quiet area, spanking has been shown to be more effective among children between the ages of three and five. After being spanked, children are much less likely to behave in the same way than if they had simply been put in time-out.
Finally, spanking is an understandable form of punishment. It can be used on nearly any young child. In contrast, young children may not understand that time-outs are punishments. For a young child that does not completely understand situations, a time-out can easily be mistaken for something else-children put in a time-out, for instance, might think that they are being removed from a situation for their own safety or because it is time for a nap. As a result, spanking is a valuable tool for parents to use because the child cannot understand it as anything other than a punishment.

The article and a the lecture both discuss the effectiveness of spanking, as a way of disciplineing of young children. While the article asserts that spanking is a universal and suitable tool to teach children the good behavior, the lecturer opposes this thesis and believe that spanking is neither an effective nor good way of punishment.
First, the article avers that spanking cause children remember which act is good or bad. It mentions that young children can assosiate between painful experience of spanking with bad act, then they try not to repeat that behavior. On the other hand, the professor challengs this point by saying that spanking does not teach children any moral, as it is only a justification. She believes that this is an illogical rule that does not teach kids good or bad acts. She questions how children infer a reasonable conclusion of this illogical punishment.
Second, the reading material posits that spanking is more efeective then other punishment such as time-out. It quotes a research to prove its idea for chidren at age three to five. The professor, however, repudiates this point by mentioning that all studies show that spanking is not effective rather than other punishment, and actually they prove that it is less effective than time-out. she insists that kids will forget the pain of spanking after five minutes while the effect of time-out punishment last far much more than spanking.
Third, the author states that spanking as an understable way of punishment is acceptable in all countries. It avers that children understand the meaning of spanking directly and they may misunderstand the purpose of time-out. The lecturer opposes this idea and asserts that spanking is not a universal form of jpunishment. She avers that parents find the spanking as a simple and quick responce to child behavior. Parents show their violence in this way and children learn from their parents behavior. As children may imitate this kind of harsh behavior, spanking should not be use by parents to discipline children.
