"Spare the rod, spoil the child". "That's what's wrong with our kids today - we give them time out instead of spanking them!". "My Mom beat me and I turned out ok!" Sound familiar? Corporal punishment has been the norm in many communities, including the African American community. But is it the right thing to do? Can we discipline our children and get them to behave without hitting them? On the next Another View, we talk with Asadah Kirkland, author of "Beating Black Kids". Ms. Kirkland is an educator, administrator and a single Mom who firmly believes African Americans must treat children more humanely. She says with "a little thought, good decision making, and good control of our actions, Black adults can repair the damage done from passing beatings on from generation to generation". Also joining us is psychologist Janis Sanchez-Hucles who will talk about the psychological impact of spanking our children. It's all on Another View, Friday, April 13 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM or stream us at whrv.org.
