The Doctors interviewed Dr Fran Walfish, author of , and she said that both Verbal Abuse and Spanking are equally damaging. So, what is the best advice for when your child acts out? Dr Fran Walfish said you should take a moment before you react and know ahead of time what the clear boundaries are. What is ok and what is not ok? Only act and talk without anger or rage. Encourage your child to say directly – I’m mad at you mommy because I don’t want to turn off the tv and take a bath right now. Just avoid spanking and verbal abuse, because it can lead to child impairment and depression.

When children lash out in anger after not getting their way, parents typically respond with a stern reprimand and treat their child's outburst as "wrong" or negative. Or a parent might succumb to his child's bad behavior by letting her do as she pleases. According to Dr. Fran Walfish, the leading Beverly Hills child and family psychotherapist whose caring approach and innovative strategies have placed her at the forefront of her profession, "Most children lose their connection to their parents during episodes of anger. This breakdown causes children to keep secrets and hide things from their parents, ultimately creating pathways to later issues including lying, drug and alcohol use, and more."
