— NPR's Michelle Trudeau reports that a new study suggests a link between spanking and aggression later in a child's life. Researchers found that when parents spanked their children, misbehavior increased two years later. Most pediatricians still recommend spanking as an acceptable form of discipline...and 93-percent of parents say they approve of spanking.
