Spanking is in no way molestation. Molestation is a sexual act of abuse, while spanking is corporal punishment.
It's not molesting.
a spanking is not molestation ....gosh
Kids will defend anything they were taught to be normal growing up.
I think it would work on older kids. It demeans them. Like "Act like a child, I treat you like a child" May sound harsh, but kids are out of control.
Although I'm not a proponent of spanking, it's absurd in the extreme to compare spanking to child molestation. You may want to rethink this. :-)
Spanking is a form of molestation? WTF! Kids are getting away with murder and parents have no rights. <br />
If my kid ever pulled this **** on me. Man, there would be hell to pay!
I'm confused, maybe because I didn't read the story you did, but... my brain doesn't make the leap and connection between spanking and molestation. Care to illuminate me on this one...?
Gee, if the child had only listened when the punishment was being grounded. Apparently, that wasn't enough to make an impression. I bet the humiliation of being spanked did. For the record, my parents had a nice wide and thick woven leather belt that acted as a lovely deterrent from being insolent and defiant to the rules of their house.
I would say first, where I live it is very unusual for kids over maybe 8 to get properly spanked but plenty get a smack round the head if they mouth off at home. Secondly, if it is like a "normal"spanking then I can't see how that can be called abuse. If it is OTT and causes real damage then it is is assault tho.
beginning at the age of 3 to 15 i have been whipped for my punishments. mostly by my mom but its not molesting or anything it was to teach me a lesson. it always hurt and i cried so much during the process. sometimes i had to take a shower with ice cold water. it was painful but i understood why she did it. she was always sorry afterwards and as my mom i forgive her for everything. i appreciate all shes done for me because i am now an excellent athlete, scholar and have discipline. i dont plan to do it for my own kids because the experience was just painful and at times i hated my mom.
As weird as it is, legally a parent has the ability to spank their child with a light tap on their butt. They cannot hit them or punish them in any other way though. Thank god my parents never did this to me...
I was spanked at those ages and no, it has nothing to do with "molesting" and is totally legal unless you are injuring the child.
