Why am I not allowed to think spanking is abuse?

Maybe abuse is not the word but I think it should be illegal to hit anyone no matter what age. No one will convince me its ever okay to hit a child. As long as its legal I can tolerate people doing it but why is it so bad for me to think that way?

People are touchy. Many have a problem with anyone disagreeing with them regardless of the subject.

You can think whatever you want. It doesn't mean everyone has to respect that opinion

I don't really care what you think as long as I am allowed to spank as needed. Just like I am allowed to think that the majority of parents that do not spank have unruly children.

I agree with you....adults can't hit each other so I'm not sure why it's okay to hit a child.

Thoughts are not illegal. No one can control them. Think what you'd like.

You can disagree.  You just can't tell other people how to raise their children if they are doing nothing wrong according to the law.  There's a lot in parenting that I disagree with but at the end of the day it's not my kid...so who cares.

Countries where spanking is illegal though (such as Finland and Denmark) have very low crime rates compared to the US

You can think whatever you like, doesn't mean you're right.
