The reading this week addresses spanking as a form of child discipline. There are a number of sociological questions that surround this topic. Is spanking a form of family violence? Is it a form of child abuse? Why does society view spanking as it does? What are the implications of views on corporal punishment for individuals? For families? For society? In your discussion, address different discipline strategies from a sociological perspective. Make sure to discuss this topic from a sociological perspective, not from an emotional perspective.
