Abstract

Scientific research on the adverse cognitive, emotional, and psychological consequences of spanking children warrant state action to ban all corporal punishment, including parental spanking. New state laws to ban child corporal punishment would be constitutional under either the state's police power or parens patrie power to protect children.
