Description: Spanking is a widely accepted form of discipline in the United States. Numerous studies show that hitting and spanking lead to physical, cognitive, and socioemotional developmental problems as well as an increased likelihood for aggressive and defiant tendencies later in life. Attitudes toward corporal punishment have changed over time and vary across disciplines and roles. The American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners, and the American Medical Association are all opposed to corporal punishment as a form of disciplining children. The goal of this presentation is to define discipline; define corporal punishment; discuss the impact of corporal punishment on children; assess past and current policy statements; and identify interventions including the No Hit Zone. "No Hit Zone" is a program that was developed at Gundersen Lutheran Medical Center and has since been implemented at numerous pediatric facilities. The focus of No Hit Zone is creating a safe space where hitting is not permitted between anyone. This presentation is brought to you through a partnership with South Carolina Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and Related Disabilities (LEND)
