Tweets about spanking and IQ study

Sep. 25, 2009 at 11:45 AM ET

This morning, Dr. Nancy Snyderman was on the show to talk about a new study that claims, "the more a child was spanked, the lower his or her IQ compared with others."

As the segment aired, here were some reactions on Twitter: 

@hoosiernik The Today Show reported children who are spanked have lower IQ's. Have to disagree - I was spanked and graduated valedictorian of my class.

@rockyclark1 Heard on the Today Show that spanking ur kids might give them a lower IQ. I'm going 2 have some dumb kids.

@mwilburn The Today Show reported children who are spanked have lower IQ's. No wonder I'm so stupid.

@Photowayfarer The Today Show reported children who are spanked have lower IQ's. But I is a college graduate ;-)

@SamsGirl02 @Todayshow P.S. i have a 18 yo. & 16 y.o. that was spanked and they r on the honor roll and work and r a productive members of or community!
