Now it's called redirection, and it still works.

There are still parents that spank their kids. That works too.

No, it doesn't. Oh sure, it'll get you compliance, but out of fear, not respect. And it teaches children the horrible lesson that it's okay for a figure of authority to hit them.

And before you ask, no, I don't have kids. But I was a preschool teacher for three years, and if you so much as raise your voice to a child in that environment, you're getting written up. I commanded the respect and attention of fourteen four year olds eight hours a day, five days a week for three years without once hitting a single one of them. If I can do that with fourteen, parents can do that with one.
