From the Author
From what I've seen, parents who refuse to spank their children usually end up replacing "the rod" with words - lashing their children with nagging, lecturing and scolding. These beatings with words seldom produce a change inbehavior and tend to inflict injury upon the child's self-esteem.
The soul of a child is much more fragile and bruises much more easily than his backside. The soul-bruises of a beating with words can't be seen but they are just as real and often even more lasting in the pain they inflict. Many times the frustrated, careless words of a parent impact us long after we have become parents ourselves.
The Bible makes it clear that spanking - when done properly - is an act of love, something we do for our child, not to our child. But there are at least five times we should "spare the rod" and not spank our child.
This book examines those five times but while doing so it also reveals when a spanking is appropriate and the attitude with which parents should approach corporal punishment.
Those who spare the rod of discipline hate their children. Those who love their children care enough to discipline them.
