Your second link is a hearing about paddling in schools, which condemns the practice. You may want to do some more research or at least screen your sources since the ones you have provided contradict your opinion.

Your first article links corporal punishment to negative effects like increased aggression, mental health problems later in life and criminal and antisocial behavior. It concludes with

' "Until researchers, clinicians, and parents can definitively demonstrate the presence of positive effects of corporal punishment, including effectiveness in halting future misbehavior, not just the absence of negative effects, we as psychologists can not responsibly recommend its use," Gershoff writes.'

So rather than supporting your argument, it opposes your view, just not as completely as other researchers.

corporal punishment is a very effective way to discipline children. it is a way of disciplining children. like nowadays, we need corporal punishment to discipline our children. see our society?? it is in chaos and children know and learn how to disrespect their teachers, friends, other people and even their parents. do you think it is nice to see children disrespecting and talking back to their parents?? if corporal punishment isn't the answer to discipline the children, then what other options are there?

It is ineffective and harmful to the child. A great deal of research has shown that it is not a good strategy for modifying behavior and can lead to negative outcomes later in life, such as an increased rate of depression. There are far more effective strategies, so why would we reintroduce one that has been shown to be a failure?
