I daresay Pediatricians who are also parents will be divided on this debate as well.In fact, I **KNOW** some pediatricians that spank their children. Even use the "switch".
You are never going to get people to agree on this topic, I'm afraid. I will never stop spanking my kids when they deserve it, and a nonspanker will never suddenly bring out the switch/paddle....
this is an "agree to disagree" moment.
When my daughter was 3, and in daycare, she would come home with bite marks, courtesy of a kid in her class. The aides at the daycare were of no help, citing all sorts of Dr. Spock crap. One visit to her pediatrician for an unrelated incident produced a solution: Her pediatrician said if she was bitten again, have her bite the kid back to show him how it felt. He bit her again, she bit back. End of story.
