COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY--A new study from the Columbia University School of Social Work shows spanking your child can be more damaging to them than first thought.

Researchers found children who were spanked at least twice a week by their mother at age three or five were more likely to break rules and act aggressively.

Doctors suggest parents take a time out themselves to think of the most effective punishment before spanking.
