A California lawmaker is trying to make it criminal to spank your child! Are you serious?!? The law would impose jail time for spanking a child 3 and under. I understand a debate about when the age for spanking should begin, but THAT SHOULD BE A PARENTAL DECISION. Besides, what is a spanking, legally? Does a hand slap count? A swat through a diaper?
I have spanked my boys… not beat them, not abused them, but spanked them. I am not normally an activist about this kind of thing, but this makes me froth at the mouth! How I raise my family is between me, my wife, and God… unless they are being abused, the government should stay the heck out!
I’m climbing off my soapbox now… but I think I know an assemblywoman who needs a spanking!
