One thought on “Proposed Legislation to Ban Spanking … Please Share Your Thoughts on This

  1. While I normally decry the government impingement upon parental autonomy rampant in our legal system where child-related issues are concerned, I believe that this law will provide clear direction for parents and diminish the involvement of child welfare “savers” who swoop in and remove children for alleged “excessive” corporal punishment that is usually defined by ANY corporal punishment because social workers just don’t like it. I doubt we can ever fashion a clear standard for what constitutes “excessiveness” under our laws. Banning spanking altogether avoids the debate and saves countless families from the trauma of involvement in the Child Welfare system.
