Why is it that if an adult hits another adult is assault and they get arrested, BUT if an adult assaults a child it discipline and they deserved it?
What are we teaching our kids?

I do agree with you. I worked in domestic violence/sexual assault area for many years and had long ago concluded our society condones violence. I actively parent my child, utilize appropriate consequences/punishments, and teach him the correct way of responding and behaving when he makes a poor choice. I do this without having to "spank" my child. There are many available options and techniques for parents who want to choose a physically free way to teach their children consequences. I don't yell either. Many parents over the years have found it hard to believe it is possible to be almost frustration free, non yelling/loud, and non spanking. It is possible it is what you desire. My parenting philosophy is I treat each situation with the same respect to him that I would want to be shown if I were him. And.....strangers, every day, ask me how I am raising such a well mannered child. Simple: with love and logic.
