Is spanking a form of abuse?
Due largely to political correctness, we’ve become a society where spanking our children is often looked upon as nothing more than child abuse.
In today’s post, I want to provide you with a brief understanding as to why spanking is not abuse.
But first let me preface; spanking in the hands of the wrong parents with the wrong motives can certainly be abuse.
But, so can permissiveness.
There’s a fine line between permissiveness and neglect–which is just another form of child abuse.
Just look around you and observe some of the phycological, emotional, and physical problems facing our kids today. Today, psych-wards are flooded with teens who self-mutilate, overdose on drugs, and attempt suicide. In fact, America now leads the world in teen suicide.
So, we need to ask, how has being politically correct been working for us?
