Child Abuse Article - What Children Ssay About Spanking

by Nadine Block
(Columbus, OH USA)

I've spent 25 years seeking to end physical abuse of children through education and legal reform. I founded the Center for Effective Discipline (www.stophitting.org) and SpankOut Day April 30th. My background is teaching and school psychology.


In advocating legal reform, I've found that personal stories of abuse, whether it is in schools which allow its use in l9 states of the US or in homes, are very effective ways of changing hearts and minds. Congratulations for sharing your story.

In trying to find new ways of educating people about the harm and ineffectiveness of physical punishment of children, I gathered words and pictures from children and co-edited a book, This Hurts Me More Than It Hurts You: In Words and Pictures Children Share How Spanking Hurts and What To Do Instead. You can find it on Amazon.com

All proceeds from the book go to the Center for Effective Discipline for the mini-grants programs for SpankOut Day.

I congratulate you on your fine website and hope you might share information about this book if you feel it is appropriate and worthy.

I took the time to check out your website. I commend and applaud your work. And while I do not typically allow such posts, the subject matter is near and dear to my heart, and I believe it can help many of my visitors. Therefore, I've made an exception in allowing it to be posted here. Perhaps more people will take the time to educate themselves about the harmful effects of spanking children. Thank you for sharing with my visitors and me.
