The Case against Spanking: How to Discipline Your Child without Hitting
By Irwin A and Hyman Ed.D.

This book examine child discipline, with spanking presented as an effective or ineffective method (depending on the viewpoint). A father and a family therapist for 30 years, Hyman (psychology, Temple Univ.) bases his discipline models on research and clinical observations. He offers parents a number of alternative strategies to physical punishment, including understanding child psychology, systematizing rewards and punishments, and defusing anger in both parent and child.

In contrast, Pritchett, a mother and stepmother, offers a discipline plan based on spanking as the only effective deterrent in training children to be obedient and well behaved. Her book begins with a description of spanking (two to five hard whacks on the bottom with a paddle followed by loving admonition).
