I think more kids should have their butts spanked(I AM NOT TALKING ABOUT ABUSE)there is a difference between child abuse & spanking your child!! If more parents did this then just maybe these out of control kids would not think about going to school & shooting their Teachers & Classmates!! I know I got my rearend spanked both at home & school as did my whole generation and there was no stories of children shooting people nor was there the out right disrespect kids of all ages show adults now!! I do not know the circumstances of the arrest but Unless this Mom really abused her child I think she should get a medal for this & not be charged for Felony abuse!! I know this will never happen but If everyone in the world would take their spoilt, unrulely, disrespectful Out of control children to Human services & drop them off because the parents are not allowed to discipline their children I bet the children services & the law would amended the child abuse law that lets children run over their parents & Teachers!!! So, next time there is a school shooting or a kid beating up others don't whine about!!!

I'm not so sure you should spank a 7 year old with a belt. I agree that there's nothing wrong with spankings but maybe with your hand no more than 10 times would be enough?

Spanking is a coward's way of disciplining. You wouldn't dare to hit an adult with a belt or your hand because an adult could fight you back. Why is it okay to hit someone that is too little to defend themself? That is no better than elder abuse. In both cases you're taking ill advantage of someone's physical weakness.
