There is a great book by Jeff VanVonderen called "Families Where Grace is in Place" and he talks at length about what Christ and Paul had to say about parenting. We are commanded not to exasperate our children or cause them to stumble. Spanking certainly does both of these things - I know I felt seething anger toward my folks when they not only spanked, but criticized, put down or whatever. (not that I was spanked much, or treated badly at all) Check it out - it blew me away!
