Yes--it's about time a court did the right thing.

I don't care. That's like saying "court ruling makes it ok to put on heavy boots and kick your kids" so what? I have enough self control and parenting skills that i don't have to resort to violence.

I spank my kids, but i dont agree with using objects. You can not tell how hard you are hitting with an object

what eactly does your child have to do in order to receive a spanking? I have 5 kids that range in age of 1 to 11 and they are all very well mannered, do what they are asked the first time (occasionally they have to be asked twice), they do not talk back, and they all respect adults. Of course they argue and fight with each other but I cant imagine spankIng any of them for that....

Good.  It's not abuse.  If she joined the gangs and the parents did nothing, that would be abuse and neglect.  They're trying to keep their daughter out of trouble.  I'm all for chaining her to her bed till she decides to do what's right...but I'm guessing some moms would say they wouldn't have to resort to that b/c they're so perfect.  *eyeroll*

Good. Stay out of my house and how I raise my kids.

Learn actual abuse it doesn't happen in my home.

The parent left bruising.... To me that is abuse. She over did it and obviously was so mad with her dad that he could not control herself.

We don't spank but I am not against it. It just isn't for us.
When my oldest daughter was 3 her father (my ex dh) spanked her with a belt. It left bruises the size of my hand. She had them on her butt, back, and legs. It was horrible as she had issues for awhile after that. The judge here in nc said it was not abuse
And that he just over disciplined.
Yeah. Not a fan of leaving bruises I. A child.
