    Children Who Get Spanked Have Lower IQs - Yahoo! News

    Unbelievable. The claim being foisted by this study is that children that get spanked have lower IQ's. Does that mean up till 1970 nearly the entire population of the US were all idiots?

    Science is hard at work proving that any idiot can create and foist on us ignorant claims with a couple studies.

    Until quite recently spanking was the preferred method of child punishment. The VAST majority of parents used it right up until the State started arresting people for the affront of disciplining their children.

    So once again this must mean before the 70's that the vast majority of Americans were idiots. That would include Democrats as well as Republicans. And all the Moderates too.

    I was born in 1980 and my parents spanked me. People do it still they just don't do it out in the open. And I agree with you it is a stupid article and spanking should be allowed. Children only recieve postive re enforcement and now we have twenty year olds thinking they deserve the world and still live with their parents. And I blame Dr.Phil completely.

    Correlation does not infer causation.

    Obviously those who are spanked have lower IQs, because only the stupid get caught!

    I scored 125 once but that was ten years ago but I know it is lower now. I have fried my brain, I used to be able to remember everything but now I sometimes forget if conditioned my hair yet.
