Everything and anything can be an opinion, whether or not it is very misguided. She isn't just playing devil's advocate, she's just saying her honest opinion with the research she's seen and the conclusion she's drawn from her experiences. There is SOME research agreeing with her side.

If we are talking about me, no I wouldn't do this to my children! I may believe that I turned out ok being spanked, others may disagree with that as well, but I also did not like being spanked. I do agree there are other ways of handling children and getting them to do right.

I am 100% ok with people disagreeing with me.
