Posted by Sandra On August - 16 - 2011

At what point does spanking or hitting – not punching but hitting like on the back of the hand or even slapping the cheek – a child cross the line legally? If you spanked your child on the bottom and they called police what would happen?

We got some answers from people who should know including Assistant Kent County Prosecutor Helen Brinkman who specializes in crimes against kids; Susan Powers who is a therapist with the Children’s Assessment Center where children who are victims of crimes are taken to be interviewed by staff trained in child psychology; and Grand Rapids Police Detective Dan Adams, a member of the department’s major crimes unit.



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.
