I don't see how spanking is above the law no matter how light it is being done. And I don't buy that spanking is the only way to teach right from wrong because I'm absolutely sure that it isn't.
Don't people make the argument all the time that emotional pain is worse than physical pain?
And I don't think anyone's made the argument that spanking is the only way to teach right from wrong, it's just still the method quite a few people choose (and the most effective in some cases - like with my kid).
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
