Where did the idea of spanking come from?
Where exactly did the concept of spanking originate from? Some people may point to the books of Proverbs in the bible where it was said that a person who "spared the rod" did not love his child. The concept, however, could have other historical origins such as the slave trade era where a paddle or a strap was used to punish slaves. Also, whipping or "cobbing" has been used in the past to punish adults.
