there is a HUUUUGE difference between a spanking and abuse,these ppl must have no children or angels,how many of us have tried the "time out" method? know what the kids learn? wow after i do something wrong i get to sit down and rest for ten minutes then back out again.A spank on the bum is a long way from throwing your kid up against a wall or beating them with a belt,thats abuse.A spank is when youve spoken to the kid 14 times and asked them to not do that and they persist,so what give em a little tap,the most it does in embarrass them and they dont want to have it happen again,and i am not talking about spanking to the point you give em a red but we are talking about a tap get real the gov is in to many things they dont need to be,why dont they try focusing on the abuse going on still in families where DSS is already involved or foster parents in it just for the money,you know they treat the kids like crap.There is more abuse in gov than in our homes.For these morons who are saying "your children will grow up to be violent ,criminals or emotionaly desturbed if you spank them",these ppl i say need a swift kick in the butt NOT a tap.

Jay Kaufman, D-Lexington obviously has nothing better to do? I would like to give these guys a KICK in the butt.

GET BUSY WITH THE PROBLEMS WE DO HAVE! Like crime, overspending, health care, real child abuse, domestic violence. Next they put into law that talking harsh to your kids will be punishable because it inflicts humiliating treatment. Is this guy kidding?
Just think of the amount of time that he spent on putting this bill together. We should be outraged.
Remember this/him at the polls.

Why don't these yahoos look at the real problems, sic the DSS on the parents in the crack houses, meddle in their lives and not the lives of people who are thrying to instil some sense of discipline and right from wrong in the kids!!! There is a big difference between beating the tar out of a kid and giving him a swat on the keester. When the little angels know that they can hold their parents hostage by a threat to call the spanking police, what kind of society are we headed for!!! You liberal pie in the sky losers can't seem to deal with the real problems in society, MOST of which were created by your inane meddling in the first place. Make more asinine laws, tie up the courts with bullcrap stuff, ruin families, and wonder how to blame it on someone else. GO AWAY!!!!!

Seven Thunders: Hey if you think that is bad, come to Portland, Maine where the school committee allows a Middle School to dispense birth control pills to students. Memory serves me right that means 9-14 yr olds would be able to get birth control pills.
Also you say that teachers are out to "sniff out" the unwanted thought crimes. Memory serves me right in Townsend a few years past, a female special needs teacher was found on a back road with a kid feeding him liquor about ready to have sex with him. Doesn't sound like that system works too well, and yet the kid wound up with a sex offender. Most damning about that...the school district tried to cover it up.
In short, this bill is brought about by a bunch of legislators, some of which probably live on the South Shore, who don't need a job, and were brought up with a silver spoon in their mouths, but yet are quick to tell people in Central Massachusetts who have to work two jobs, how to take care of their kids.
If government can cover up a case of female teacher trying to have sex with a student, then government shouldn't be telling parents how to raise their kids. Simple as that!
Wow, thanks for making my case. Yeah the general decline in morality is well reflected among some predatory teachers. Yet for some reason they can not allow you to educate your child yourself or pay for private education. At the $10K a child our system sucks up, I could chauffeur my child to a private christian school where they'd get a much better education.

But it's not enough for them to have your child 6-7 hours a day, constantly brainwashing them with anti-christian, scientific materialism, they also need to work their way into your homes to make sure you raise your kids just the way the state likes them. Maybe they need more good little socialists who will continue to self medicate and otherwise enslave themselves to the global plan.
