This is the logical consequence when crazy cat ladies get power. A CA bill to punish spanking with a year in jail. This same woman finds abortion to be completely loving and non-violent.

first of all,  good to see you again happymom.

it’s awfully tough to keep a positive frame of mind with people who want laws like this.  if parents or potential parents can’t discipline their kids,  might that not DISCOURAGE some of them from having kids ??

will not some people think twice about having kids if the gov’t is going to be THIS INVOLVED in how they are raised ?

if parents can’t discipline the kid, then can we also apply this to ADULTS ?   i mean, why not ?  if a parent can’t paddle a kid,  then why can police force be used against adult criminals ?

this strikes me as unequal treatment under the law.

in fact, NO ONE should be disciplined.   we should all do whatever the hell we feel because that is what we want to do and makes us happy.

Good point about punishing adult criminals. Times outs are a favorite tool of the anti-spanking set. They most resemble solitary confinement in prison. Hmmm.

This law would:
– increase children living inpoverty (parent(s) goes to jail and loses their job)
– increase likelihood the kids would wind up in prison as adults
– increase divorce
– creat trauma in the lives of otherwise healhty and well cared for children and their parents
– increse the number of uncontrolled beasts running around whose parents where too afraid to spank them. Our juvenile facilities are already overflowing now (thanks to 35+ years of Dr Spock’s no spanking advice, his son comitted suicide, btw)

Note that it applies to parents but not nannies, grandparents, aunts etc. Strange.

All this is the result of taking parenting advice from a vetinarian’s guidelines for a cat owner. Perhaps our children should use a litter box and eat off the floor and be left alone while we leave the house as well?

The studies that claim to show a link between spanking and violence and other negative effects refuse to distinguish between a swat used as loving guidence to help develop character and beating a child out of rage. This shows their initial bias and leads to incorrect conclusions.

You may find it interesting the Japan and Singapore allow and encourage judicious spanking while Sweden, the Netherlands, Canada, The UK etc criminalize it. Which societies are fairing better I wonder?

I thank my parents for spanking me as a child. What a wretched beast I’d be otherwise.

yea it is gov’t involvement gone way too amuk.

while it may be true that parents aren’t perfect, gov’t is even more imperfect.

the child is a result of the parents.  it is their very own creation.  not the gov’t.  the parents are the ones that have a direct stake in their children.

who has more love for  their child …  parents or gov’t ??   while the gov’t may “care” about the child, they aren’t the ones doing the daily and often difficult tasks of child raising.

precious ivory tower “oh be still my bleeding heart” liberals need to move on to the next cockamania idea.

Fine, let the police deal with the extra criminals.

The bible says “Spare the rod, spoil the child.”

Silly liberals think they know more than God!!!

Women have been proving for the last 30 years that men have been right for the last 30 centuries!
