Sometimes parents are advised to use a time-out instead of spanking their kids— as though these were the only two options available.…both of these tactics are punitive. They differ only with respect to whether children will be made to suffer by physical or emotional means.

For that matter, spanking kids is preferable to shooting them, but that’s not much of an argument for spanking.
