About the Author

Co-editors Nadine Block and Madeleine Gomez NADINE BLOCK has worked as a teacher, school psychologist and consultant to mental health organizations. She founded the Center for Effective Discipline in l987 and served as its executive director until 2010. The organization is dedicated to ending corporal punishment of children through education and legal reform. She has developed policies and directed legislative action to ban corporal punishment of children in schools at state and national levels. In l998, she initiated SpankOut Day April 30th to provide information about the effects of physical punishment of children and alternatives to its use. More than l2,000 parents have attended SpankOut Day programs. The observance has been adopted by organizations in several countries. She coordinated a coalition of 50 Ohio organizations which finally achieved a legislative ban on school corporal punishment in Ohio public schools in 2009. Her commitment to ending all corporal punishment of children stems from a firm belief that children are entitled to the same freedom that all other citizens enjoy, to be free from physical assault. Nadine has received many awards and has been interviewed on Larry King Live, Hannity and Comb, ABC News, New York Times, USA Today, Good Morning America, BBC Channel 4, London, CBS 48 Hours, Redbook, Reuters Health Network, NBC Today, and by many other media sources. MADELEINE GOMEZ, PhD, is a licensed clinical psychologist and president of PsycHealth Ltd., a certified minority and women's behavioral health-care organization established in 1989. PsycHealth Ltd. has received URAC Gold and Bronze Awards as well as a Global Communications League of American Communications Professionals Bronze Award. Dr. Gomez is widely respected in her area of specialty—children, families, and abuse. A published researcher, presenter, and assistant professor at Northwestern University, she is also a lifelong human rights advocate. The Southern Poverty Law Center recognized her "outstanding dedication to human rights and equal justice," and the Chicago Board of Education honored her with its Voices of Freedom Award for her work promoting nonviolence and "continuously supporting the self-esteem" of students in Chicago Public Schools. In 2010, Dr. Gomez received the National Psychologist Award from the Dorland Group for her work dedicated to nonviolence, serving the underserved, and promoting quality care. The editors are parents and grandparents.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A ground-breaking exploration into the hearts and minds of our children from a country and society where pets have more rights than our kids! As a psychotherapist of 25 years --- this is the first collection I've seen that allows us to really hear the voice of those whom are largely voiceless. It's about time we wake up, realize, take responsibility for and put an end to the beginnings of the cylce of violence which most often starts with "spanking" or "discipline." This collection provides a vehicle for expressing and demonstrating the consequences of corporal punishment. I will definitely find ways to utilize this book to educate parents towards non-violent parenting, and also forward a copy to our counseling school's library and Art Therapy Department. Thanks to Dr. Gomez and Ms. Block for their contribution towards raising healthy kids and a peaceful world!

This is a moving depiction told by children themselves through their at of what it feels like to be "spanked." It says so much more than a hundred pages of scholarly text, a hundred research studies, in illustrating, literally, the impact on children of being hit by adults. A short read, it belongs in physician waiting rooms, libraries, child development classes and for use in parenting classes. I've seen nothing like it before.

"This Hurts Me More Than It Hurts You: In Words and Pictures, Children Share How Spanking Hurts and What To Do Instead", is a wonderful resource! It conveys - in ways that our professional language and analyses never can - the pain and pleas of children who experience physical punishment. Their compelling words and evocative drawings should reinforce our determination to ensure that all children receive the same protection from assault we adults take for granted and that all parents understand the value of positive discipline.

Format: Paperback
This book is a long time in coming. It should have been written 30 years ago. Can you believe parent/adults are still spanking, hitting, beating kids? And not just at home - at school, at the store and at houses of worship.

Dr Gomez writes beautifully and simply. An amazing book of insights from the child's point of view. Something we seem to loose sight of as we get older. This book should be mandatory for all parents. Start in Prek!! A must read for prospective parents, parents, grandparent or those who dont have kids and have no idea.

8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Norm Lee on October 16, 2011
Format: Paperback
For over forty years as a Children's Advocate and reading the abundant research in corporal punishment, at last here is an extraordinary book filled with children's writings and drawings expressing their feelings on being treated violently. We adults tend to suppress how it feels to be slapped and spanked, yet the majority of U.S. kids are so treated. More than one page of this book brought tears to my eyes.
In my research I have found Zero psychological and philosophical justification for punishing children in any way, much less in hitting them. So 45 years ago my wife and children and I together found ways to eliminate all forms of punishment in our home. In my book "Parenting Without Punishing" I show how, with our Democratic Discipline family meetings, we all shared responsibility for treating each other with civility. Instead of lectures and shaming, the children learned by parents' modeling the desired behavior. Hence, the kids were, say, never taught manners; instead they were treated with courtesy. They matured considerably sooner than their peers. They are now in their forties, with college degrees and successful in their careers & happy families. This 18-year "research" is my argument that no extra patience is necessary, only understanding the basic goodness of a child, and respecting that. - Norm Lee

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There are now a handful of scholarly publications (both journal articles and at least one book) on the topic of children's reactions to spanking. But none of those sources carry the power of this slim (74 page) paperback. The book is nicely organized into a) How spanking makes children feel; b) What children respond to instead of spanking, and c) Resources (for parents and professionals who want to combat the practice). The 63 quotes from children (ages 7 to 16 years) were masterfully selected, with all but three quotes coming from children in the U.S. But for me, the 31 drawings, reproduced in full color, are the most poignant and powerful part. The authors (technically, they are editors) showed admirable restraint by letting the children's words and drawings do the talking. My only petty critiques are that I would have liked to read quotes from younger children and I found the chapter numbering system to be unusual (each section began with "Chapter 1"). I highly recommend this very effective and powerful book. Share it with your friends and neighbors!

Finally, a book written by the children whose hearts have been so silent. You can hear as well as envision their sadness through their own words and heart-wrenching illustrations. The message is clear... we need to listen.

Thank you, Dr. Gomez, for your award-winning dedication promoting nonviolence is very inspiring. As I once read in your previous publication, you truly live "To the hope that tomorrow will be a new day filled with peace for all today" (The Power of Peace by Madeleine Y. Gomez, Ph.D. and Mitch Hall).

As a former elementary teacher and mother, I pray that your book empowers many of us to really listen to their words and make a difference.

More About the Author

In l987 I founded the Center for Effective Discipline, a non-profit organization which seeks to end corporal punishment of children through education and legal reform. My background is teaching and school psychology. I have worked with legislatures and interest groups on issues related to education, children's mental health, corporal punishment of children and child abuse prevention. In Ohio, I led a group of 50 organizations in achieving a state-wide ban on school corporal punishment in 2009. Ohio became the 30th state to do so.

I enjoy writing about this issue and, in 2011, published This Hurts Me More Than It Hurts You; In Words and Pictures Children Share How Spanking Hurts and What To Do Instead. It is used in a variety of professional training programs and parenting programs to create awareness of the effects of corporal punishment. In 2013, I published Breaking the Paddle: Ending School Corporal Punishment which chronicles the legislative victory by a small group of average citizens in ending the practice in Ohio in 2009. It is a must-read book for parents and child advocates who seek to end its use. Both books have won national book awards. My commitment to ending all corporal punishment of children stems from a firm belief that children are entitled to the same freedom that all other citizens enjoy, to be free from physical assault. All proceeds from my writing go to non-profit organizations for educational programs on positive discipline.

I like finding creative ways of bringing attention to the subject of corporal punishment of children. I started the website www.stophitting.org. I have spoken at many professional conferences and have been interviewed by almost all major networks and news publications.

I live in Columbus, Ohio. I am married, the mother of three grown sons and grandmother to l0 children. My blog is www.nadineblock.com.
