Re: East Texans Sound-Off on Spanking and If It Crosses the Line Into Physical Abuse

Both my wife and I were spanked as children and we didn't turn out bad or emotionally damaged. Scripture tells us that a child is to be disciplined and sometimes a pop on the rear is the only way to get the point across. This anti-spanking stance that has overtaken our nation is a good explanation for why so many young kids have absolutely no respect for any authority! We believe that there is a definate line between spanking and beating. There is no reason for a parent who spanks to be prosecuted. Let's leave that action for the parents who actually beat and cause harm to their children.
