The term "abuse" has specific meanings under the law. In Ohio, spanking children is perfectly legal, both at home by parents, and in schools by staff, and by itself does not constitute abuse.<quoted text>
I get where you are coming from on your position regarding thread topic.
However.....not all parents are whom you fear. My guess is you fear 15% of all parents, and that alone is criminal.....I get it. I just hope my guess at % is high.
We also have parents who plant kids in front of TV, and ignore their lives awaiting the kid move out day. This % is significant.
What we have is a society that legislates excuses for personal behavior, and persecutes those in disagreement.
Parents need to parent. Kids just like puppies require training. Kids learn most from watching and listening to parents.
Child abuse.....is it just being beat, or could it be said parents who ignore the responsibility to raise moral well educated children abused them?
Being a parent carries new responsibilities in life, and failure certainly is harmful to children.
what say you?
Leave bruises and you've crossed the line. Now you're abusing the child.
