Frog Misrepresenting Sweden

The Green's FrogBlog thinks that Dave of BigNews is misrepresenting Sweden in his Herald article today. It uses the following report by Dr J Durrant for it's proof : A Generation Without Smacking

The Frog is either unaware, or hopes that no one else knows about this report : Sweden's Smacking Ban : More Harm Than Good, by Dr R Larzelere of the University of Nebraska Medical Center. Dr Larzelere has studied Durrant's report and Durrant's sources and found that:
Joan Durrant draws conclusions about four major trends since Sweden's 1979 ban on smacking. On the first three trends, the very sources she cites strongly suggest conclusions opposite to hers.
