Modern Humanists parents don’t spank.
Or most don’t. Why? Because it’s counterproductive, meaning it isn’t a very good discipline technique because it doesn’t really work to create discipline. It can create temporary compliance, but it does nothing to instill a sense of self-discipline in a child.
And isn’t that actually what most parents want? Kids who are self-disciplined? Kids who choose to do the right thing because, … it’s the right thing to do?
