I saw a child getting spanked by their parent that consisted of 2 swats with an open hand, and prior to that the child was begging the parent not to spank her, and I walked to my car and was shaking so bad that I could not get the key in the door of my car. I know in my mind that the spanking was not bad and was neede, but it creates great and excessive anxiety. Why is this so?
