I saw something the other when I was at someones house. There was a baby like 18 months old mabye 19 months, and the father got mad because the child said no to him he ran after the boy and spanked him on the butt pretty hard and then grabbed him up put him on the bed and covered the boys mouth with his hand and screamed in his face to never say no to him again. Then jerked him up sat him down and hit his butt again. Is this abuse or am I overreacting? I cant get it out of my mind to me thats not accectable to do that to a baby. Am I wrong?

That IS wrong. KY has a law that requires you to report abuse. You can do it anonymously through the police or sheriff's office or child protection. The hot line # is 800-752-6200.

Well if you see something that you know is wrong it's your responisbility to do the right thing. Right?? If he did that while you were there what do you think happens when your not there. Most abuse happens when they are away from other people. People tend to show who they really are behind closed doors. You need to tell someone. Protect that child. I'm kinda in the same situation and don't know if I should say anything, but what kind of person could let that go on?

No, it is NOT acceptable to do a baby that way - you are talking about a very young child that cannot defend itself at all. It is just a shame that the social services are so busy trying to make up things to put innocent people away and yet they often times will do nothing to protect the truly abused...It sounds like that is probably what gooddaddy was referring.

If you are pretty sure, you don't want to wait until you read in the paper that the child is dead. I would prefer to err on the side of caution when talking about child safety.

Imagine how scared that child is. The person who is suppose to protect him is hurting him. Make an call. You don't have to give your name.

WHAT THE HELL! YOU HAVE TO GET ON HERE TO ACTUALLY ASK ADVISE! FIRST, YOU SHOULD HAVE GRABBED HIS MOUTH, AND BUSTED HIS ASS! THEN TAKEN THE CHILD OUT OF THAT ENVIROMENT. HE WOULDNT HAVE DONE ANYTHING TO YOU, FOR ONE,,,HES A COWARD! I HOPE AND PRAY THAT YOU DID NOT LEAVE THE CHILD ALONE WITH THIS CRAZY MAN. IF YOUR CHILD WAS LEFT IN THAT PERDICAMENT, WOULD YOU NOT HAVE WANTED SOMEONE TO SPEAK UP??? PICTURE THIS IF YOU CAN...."BABY DIES FROM CHILD ABUSE WHILE OTHER PEOPLE LOOK ON" AND YOU HAVE TO ASK "IS THIS ACCEPTABLE..........DUH! WHERES YOUR SIGN?

i agree. anyone who beats a defenseless child is a coward. a coward of the highest degree.
child abuse is the most awful thing.
i dont think spanking a child is abuse, but covering their mouth and yelling and throwing them def is. make the call. dont worry about the dad or your own fears. worry about the innocent child.

You can't just grab up a child an take him. They call that kidnapping. You have to do it the right way.

If you grabed the child and took him or her to the neighbors house and called the cops they could not do anything to you for that. I would not leave that child alone with that man for anything

This is sad but true. It's sometimes a balance of which is worse, the results the kids will face to have the parents know social services was contacted or the abuse they'll deal with anyhow... it's a toss up a lot of times. I've not had great luck with SS in this county.

It is the law to report it. The balance is still there.

ABSOLUTELY CALL! Do not just call once and forget about it either. I would call each and every day to follow up to ensure that someone checked this out.
