Kimada should receive Moth of the Year. And you, Yolanda, should receive Runnerup and probably awards for spelling and grammar.

I agree with teacher, this should not be in the news. However Kimada should not have children and Yolanda needs to see teacher and learn proper english and spelling. I hope this little child will be place in a good loving home. And the mother placed in a cell for a long time.

I do agree that this shouldn't be in the news for the protection of the child. I am glad that the daycare worker was smart enough to call CPS. Although most likely CPS will do nothing about it in the long run. They never do. CPS needs to crack down on these child abusing low lifes!! Too many "good" mothers are abusing or letting someone else abuse their kids. April is Child Abuse Awareness month I hope everyone will look around them and if you see abuse or suspect it please don't just sit by becasue you think it is none of your business!! That child could be saved because of your concerned phone call and remember you can do it anonymously !!!!PROTECT THE KIDS!!!

Here is the information and certification site for educators on recognizing child abuse.

It is a requirement for certification and informative if you really want to be aware of the issue.

There is a difference between discipline and beating. Generally, if there is visible multiple bruising left, after 8+ hours, then an inappropriate amount of force was applied and it is abuse.
Just because you can beat up on someone smaller doesn't mean you should, especially when that individual doesn't have a means to respond or an alternate refuge.
Raising children today is not an easy task, but if you have to resort to excessive physical force, because your to lazy to find out how to use it correctly or other means of discipline, than don't have children in the first place. as I'm sure your laziness will carry over and short change them in other areas of life, as well.

why are we so quick to judge? the only facts we have are that the child was beat because he disobeyed his mother. nothing else. what if it was just a spanking? children make up stories alot. i am not defending child abusers, what i ma saying is none of know the circumstances and how badly this child was injured.
Spanking does not leave bruises. Beating leaves bruises. I can't imagine how any adult could hurt a child, any child, much less their own. There is NOTHING a child could do that warrants being beaten to the point that there are bruises. And you state that we don't know "how badly the child was injured." We know he has physical evidence of being abused. The bruises will fade, but the emotional damage will last a lifetime. Poor child.

I get bruises from being held while trying to get away... bruising is not always from an act of violence...If you yell at a Kid in public you're going to jail...let alone smack the dog poop out of some mis-behaving lil punk a88 kid. you spare the rod you spoil the child. I'm not saying beat a kid til he's unconscious. but controlling a child can sometimes leave bruising..

Somebody needs to learn more appropriate restraint techniques. There is never a justifiable reason to "smack the the dog poop out of" a kid.

Bruising that is visibly present the following day is not corrective discipline, its abuse.

i used to get spankings alot because i used to act up alot. sometime the whoopings left bruises on my ****. i turned out fine. when your child disobeys you they have to learn that this is wrong. some kids don't think timeout is a punishment, these are the kids that need to get spanked. i was that kid and looking back at the whoopings, i am glad that i got them. they taught me right from wrong and made me respect my parents, not fear them. i agree with the goatherder(lol) you should not beat a kid until he is bleeding or on the brink of conciousness, but i belive that you should be able to discipline your children accordingly.
While people do bruise differently, as to how much force is required to produce actual bruises (not red marks), striking hard enough to produce true bruising is excessive.

Not all bleeding is visible, by the way what do you think bruising is?

You and newportnewser are in effect supporting the beating of a child until he or she bleeds, it just happens to be internal in this case, as a form of corrective discipline.
