This Hurts Me More Than It Hurts You

This Hurts Me More Than It Hurts You: In Words and Pictures, Children Share How Spanking Hurts and What To Do Instead

–by Nadine A. Block, contributor Madeleine Y. Gomez

Hardcover, illustrated $17.95

This eye-opening book is written and illustrated by those most affected by spanking — children. Their words and drawings show that spanking doesn't result in the behaviors parents and teachers desire. Instead, it sows seeds of pain, despair, anger, humiliation, confusion, anger — and the continuation of a cycle of violence. The children also share what disciplinary tactics are effective. Parents and child-care professionals may be shocked to find that reasoned discussions, loss of privileges, "timeouts," and the opportunity to atone for misbehaviors work better than spanking.
