Product Description

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.

Editorial Reviews

?A `must-read' book about the spanking controversy that should be of interest to parents, parent educators, and mental health professionals.? --Charles E. Schaefer, coauthor of How to Talk to Your Kids About Really Important Things

"A good addition to most public library parenting collections."

"In this informative text, Hyman shores up his passion for children's rights with logic and research."

"[Hyman] presents a convincing arguement against spanking in the home and includes a Parent Punitive Quiz by which readers can measure their attitudes toward punishment."
