Proverbs 13:24 says, "Whoever spares the rod hates their children, but the one who loves their children is careful to discipline them."  Is this a healthy approach to child-rearing and the discipline of children?

We explore many religious rules for parenting, and we share the perspectives of listeners who have firsthand experience with strict (and not-so-strict) homes, physical punishments, and the often lasting consequences.

This is part one of a 2-part series.  The second half airs next week.
