I know I shouldn't read these mainstream magazines -- they make me so crazy. But the May issue has the results of a poll they ran in their magazine and on AOL that asked: "Have you ever spanked your child?" 64% said yes, 20% said rarely, and only 16% said no. I won't even get into the comments these moms made. How sad is this? I wrote them a letter urging them to do an article on discipline and why physical punishment doesn't work. I really had no idea so many parents spanked their kids -- I thought anyone who did hit their kids would be too ashamed to admit it.
