DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - Sparing the rod may spare parents from future headaches, according to a new study from Southern Methodist University.

Thirty-seven families participated in the survey, which found that spanking children may encourage more bad behavior.

The study concluded that most kids who were disciplined with corporal punishment misbehaved again within ten minutes of their punishment.

Researchers also found that most parents hit kids for extremely mundane offenses and that hitting wasn’t a last resort.

On average, according to the study, parents hit or spanked just 30 seconds after the conflict began and don’t follow guidelines pro-spanking advocates claim are effective.

Other recent research showed that parents who favor spanking changed their minds after they were briefly exposed to summaries of research detailing the negative impact of corporal punishment on children.
