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

What a stupid question! I have seen the results when parents refuse to spank or correct their children. Of course, there are many kids that rarely, if ever, warrant a spanking. Also, spanking is not to be confused with beating a child. Excessive brutality actually results in having the same effect as lack of discipline. A child who exhibits defiance and anger and self will. An adult should never discipline a child when they ar angry. That could definitely result in abuse.
