An article published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal says spanking could lead to problems later in life.

Researchers analyzed several studies on the topic and found those who were physically punished had more mental health disorders and slower cognitive development.

The authors of the study say the medical finding may have been largely overlooked and overshadowed by concerns that parents should have the right to determine how their children are disciplined.

Researchers say the findings show parents should find constructive ways to discipline their kids.
