  1. Should Parents Spank their Children?

  2. SPANKING • Not a panacea • Not a pariah • A proper place for its use to successfully discipline children

  3. CORPORAL PUNISHMENT • Help parents learn the value & place of properly using it • Help parents know when & how to use spanking • Help parents resist the error that spanking is wrong & should never be used

  4. Wisdom of Men “If we are ever to turn toward a kindlier society and a safer world, a revulsionagainst the physical punishmentof children would be a good place to start.” Dr. Benjamin Spock

  5. Wisdom of Men “In reality, spanking only teaches a child how to be abusive.” Marlene Resnick “Spanking Teaches Wrong Lessons”

  6. Wisdom of Men “Hitting is actually not biblical.” askdrsears.com

  7. Wisdom of God • IT IS RIGHT He who spares his rod hates his son, But he who loves him disciplines him promptly. (Proverbs 13:24)

  8. Wisdom of God • IT IS NEEDED Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child; The rod of correction will drive it far from him. (Proverbs 22:15)

  9. Wisdom of God • IT IS NOT ABUSIVE Do not withhold correction from a child, For if you beat him with a rod, he will not die. (Proverbs 23:13)

  10. Wisdom of God • IT WORKS You shall beat him with a rod, And deliver his soul from hell. (Proverbs 23:14) The rod and rebuke give wisdom… (Proverbs 29:15)

  11. A Classic Choice • Wisdom of the earth or wisdom from above, Jas. 3:13-18 • World’s wisdom is foolishness with God, 1 Cor. 3:18-20 • Sons receive discipline, Hebrews 12:3-11

  12. The Rod of Correction • Instrument of punishment (not abuse) • Expression of love (not hate)

  13. Rod of Correction: OT • Solomon, 2 Sam. 7:14-15 • Messianic, Psa. 89:30-33 • Shows God’s love, Prov. 3:11-12 • Application of punishment, Lam. 3:1 (2:20-22)

  14. Rod of Correction: NT • Preaching, 1 Cor. 4:21 • Church discipline, 1 Cor. 5:3-5 • Trials of life, Heb. 12:3-7 (5:7-8)

  15. Rod of Correction: PARENTS Prov. 3:11-12 (How & Why) • Love for child, Prov. 3:12; 29:17 • Promptly, Prov. 13:24 (Eccl. 8:11) • Consistently, Col. 3:21 • Teach respect, to profit the child & to bear good fruit, Heb. 12:9-11 • When teaching refused, Prov. 10:13

  16. Lawmaker Wants ‘No Spanking’ Law in California Local Legislator Proposes Ban Jan. 19 - KGO - It's an old argument -- to spank or not to spank children. Now California could theoretically be the first state to outlaw parental spanking. The proposal includes penalties of up to a year in jail and fines of as much as $1000 dollars. By Nannette Miranda, ABC7/KGO-TV/DT

  17. Spanking is described as… • A form of child abuse • Too rampant in our society • Violent and anger • Only works temporarily • Harmful to a child’s development and individuality

  18. Spanking is called “abuse” • “Beat” (strike, clap, applaud), Prov. 23:13-14 • While there is hope, Prov. 19:18 • Cleanses away evil, Prov. 20:30

  19. Spanking said to be “too rampant” • Is love “too rampant”? Prov. 13:24 • Could it be the wrong use and no use of spanking that is “too rampant”?

  20. Spanking said to breed violent children • Properly used, it breeds obedient children, Heb. 5:8 • Drives away foolishness, Prov. 22:15

  21. Spanking said to only work temporarily • It does work, Prov. 29:17 (Heb. 12:9; Matt. 10:28) • Only one type of correction; all should be used

  22. Spanking said to be the wrong role model for kids and harms their development • God is the role model, Prov. 3:11-12 • Is it a better role model not to correct disobedience & rudeness? • Could it be parents are following the model they saw when they were kids?

  23. PARENTS • Who do you trust to teach you about rearing your children; man or God? (Prov. 14:12; 1 Cor. 1:25)

  24. CHRISTIAN • Are you willing to accept God’s correction & bear the fruit of righteousness? (Heb. 12:9-11)
