> I also think that otherwise good parents who believe in non-abusive spankings cause far less damage than, for example, emotionally abusive or neglectful parents
Neglect is a major contributor to developmental PTSD, and might be more damaging than physical abuse. It's hard to believe, but neglect affects adversely the developing brain much like abuse does.
Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.
