A judge in Corpus Christi, Texas had some harsh words for a mother charged with spanking her own child before sentencing her to probation. "You don't spank children today," said Judge Jose Longoria. "In the old days, maybe we got spanked, but there was a different quarrel. You don't spank children."

Rosalina Gonzales had pleaded guilty to a felony charge of injury to a child for what prosecutors had described as a "pretty simple, straightforward spanking case." They noted she didn't use a belt or leave any bruises, just some red marks. As part of the plea deal, Gonzales will serve five years probation, during which time she'll have to take parenting classes, follow CPS guidelines, and make a $50 payment to the Children's Advocacy Center.

She was arrested back in December after the child's paternal grandmother noticed red marks on the child's rear end. The grandmother took the girl, who was two years-old at the time, to the hospital to be checked out.

No doubt serving consecutive life sentences after the courts found out he did more than leave a red mark when he laid down the spankins...

2 years old is a little young to be hitting a kid, especially hitting a 2 year old so hard it leaves a mark. A pat on the tush is enough to send a 2 yr old bawling. Hitting so hard it leaves a mark noticed later by others is child abuse.

Maybe it was an extreme case, but the quotes from the verdict make it sound like Any spanking would be considered a felony by that judge. That's far far to intrusive for my liking. The government should not be legislating parenting to that degree.

A stern "no" or maybe a time out but you don't hit a 2 yr old. That's child abuse.
