Do you have evidence to substantiate that claim? Or is it just what you think you're seeing?


Because there is actual evidence showing the opposite:

My son was spanked constantly by his mother and (more often) her boyfriend. He is almost 6 and has some serious aggression issues. I got custody of him about a month ago, and while I haven't spanked him at all, every time I raise my voice he runs away like he's afraid I'm going to beat him.
Jesus, that's horrible. I'm so sorry you have to go through that. I hope that he starts to feel safer and more comfortable now that he's in a non-violent home. I hate to say good luck, I'd rather say good work, because it sounds like you're doing the right thing for him.
I'm doing my best! Obviously, it's an ongoing effort. I do think he will get better over time, though, with some help.

RM's son is a real cutie, too.
Good thing he can't read this or he'd get a big head!

This breaks my heart. I'm so glad he is with you now.
Me too. Thank you.
