I wonder what is concidered child abuse these days. Is there a fine line or are there actual things that are needed to be followed? I do not like to punish my children by using physical punishment. But my ex husband and his wife do. If a child needs a spanking I guess that is what needs to be done. I have done that in the past. But what about them smacking my child in the face and slapping them in the back of the head? Is that abuse or is that just the way methodist punish their kids?

Kevin Bennett and Melinda Barns beat Melinda's daughter and made her sit at the table for up to eight hours at a time. She was only five. All because she wouldn't eat deer meat. DHR took Melinda's daughter from the home but left Kevin's son in the home. That is so unfair to Kevin's son!!!Oh by the way he is coaching the Ardmore mini midgets football so parents watch your kids closely at those football games.
