Spankings lead to abuse?

Posted by Sandra On July - 6 - 2010

Jon Mark Beilue asked an important question in a column he wrote for this paper last Friday: When does child discipline become child abuse?

The question arises from an incident in which a local police officer apparently struck his own child and then came under investigation by the state’s Child Protective Services.

Beilue mentioned that he had had his hide tanned more than once when he was young, and I accept at face value his conclusions that he both deserved it and learned from it. He went on to say that the majority of comments on the topic lamented the fact that parents could get in trouble for “disciplining” a child.



By the time you finish reading this, 15 children will have been abused; In the next five minutes, 30 more; Within the next hour, 360 more; And by tonight, close to 8,000+ children will have suffered from abuse, 5 of which will die. Child abuse has increased 134% since 1980 and is now considered a worldwide epidemic. The high jump in child abuse deaths and the shocking increase in statistics highlights the frightening lack of public knowledge.
