  • i'd probably assume his kid needed it. there's a difference in spanking and beating..need i really say it for the hundredth time?

  • Depends.

    A spanking and abuse are completely different things, you should know the difference before you even think about stepping in on another parent like that.

  • LOL! I am sorry, this question always makes me laugh! Truthfully, I would do nothing. I am old enough to know when a child is being spanked from when a child is being beaten!

  • It's their child, and as long as it's spanking and not beating, that's their deal and none of my business.

  • I would do neither. If the kid needed it then he needed it.
