I am in agreement with Graham. Particularly when he said, “They are blind to the fact that those in superior authority are inflicting punishment out of a certain care for them.” As the bible says in Proverbs 22:15 “Foolishness is in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him” So we as Christians should discipline our child through spanking them and if we do not then foolishness will stay in them. One of the most important things I have ever learned is that love is doing what is best for someone whether they like it or not, and ever time I would be spanked my father or mother would look me in the eye and say “I am doing this because I love you and it is whats best for you” at the time I did not believe but as I grew and saw examples of kids who were not swatted I became very thankful for the punishment I had received.
