Hitting a baby is intended to cause pain and possibly injury- if not physical injury, then psychological injury.<quoted text>
HA HA !!
Physical violence is defined as the intentional use of physical force with the potential for causing injury, harm, disability, or death.
Spanking a child is none of those.
I know, I know, you're gonna say "It CAUSES harm, it CAUSES pain".....
But that's not the intention. The intention is discipline.
You are too ignorant to grasp that you can't discipline one who has no concept of what discipline is.
As far as what the intention is....well, the road to HELL is paved with "good intentions", RR.
And gee- do tell me how one explains to a 6 month old baby that they're not intending to harm the baby, just intending to discipline them.
You LIKE violence, RR- and I told you that long before I knew you liked to hit 6 month old babies.
