Comment: Spanking is not hitting, or abuse.

(See in situ)

Spanking is not hitting, or abuse.

As someone who was spanked multiple times weekly for most of my childhood, I can tell you that violence is not something I am interested in.

I have only been in a single physical altercation, I threw one punch and it was over. The kid was on top of me, I swung and broke his face - literally, fractured his orbital bone.

Spanking a child on the bottom for mouthing off, being a brat, misbehaving, not listening, etc. is not a form of abuse - it's age old discipline.

Teach consequences to poor choices, or don't.

They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.
