I'm a new mother and my son is 5 months old and i could never bring myself to ever hitting him now or even when he's older. I know mothers and fathers who hit thier kids as young as one year old or younger then that. i'm not so caught up with the law of punishment for kids but i think its one where spanking your kid is child abuse, i'm not so sure. what do you all think about this? do you agree or disagree with the law? what are you all thoughts on this? Is it wrong or right?
