I agree wituh Walt. First, back when doctors made house calls, spankings were pretty universal. Second, the doctor apparently thought the injection was important for the child's health, so certainly a few swats on the child's backside was a small price to pay if it was going to lead to what he felt was needed. Third, a busy doctor does not want to wait 15 or 30 minutes while a parent tried to beg, bribe, or argue a stubborn child into cooperating. Fourth, it is only recently that society and the government has come to the conclusion it has a "right" to tell parents how to raise their children. So even if the doctor disagreed with the spanking, he wasn't likely to interfer, not if he wanted to continue being their physicain.
