Spanking now illegal in Delaware
There had been some discussion on ST about SPs spanking a while back. But if you’re in Delaware, make sure you don’t touch the skids. Spanking can landing you in jail for a year.
I can’t believe these politicians trying to tell parents how to discipline their kids. These brats that are being raised by permissive parents to believe they are the center of the world need their butts beaten.
Former SD liked to use the “I’m going to report you to Child Protective Services” when she wasn’t getting what she wanted. She had an absolute vindictive joy in saying that. She wanted to see us arrested. (Her BM and BM’s boyfriend had been arrested for child abuse and child endangerment and rather than being concerned about losing another parent or how terrible it was the time she spent in foster care, she used CPS as a threat to control her dad).
Former SD doesn't believe anyone has any right to tell her what she could or couldn't do. I know exactly what my father would have done if I said said what former-SD said to my parents when I was growing up. Trust me, my father would have fixed that attitude in 10 seconds with one good spanking.
Now how much power are these little brats going to have if more states criminalize corporal punishment and any sort of punishment that causes pain? In child custody cases, saying one parent spanks isn’t just a different form a discipline, it’s a criminal act? This is going to unleash a can of worms.
