Why do you need an apology as a sign a child has been punished enough you sick twisted animal? To feed your ego or cure the perception that you are no longer disrespected? Do you love your children or merely need to control them? Punishment is not discipline. If you truly cared about a child you would consider that a child was disciplined by learning a valid lesson and not by violence or vitriol or at your angry hand or frustrated voice. Discipline should be meted out by age appropriateness and under no circumstance does it include violence or verbal abuse. I suggest you drop this now.

Legally, it varies from state to state, but a fairly hard line for the courts is bruises and blood. That said, some parents have withheld food from the child for punishment and ultimately starved the child to death. Withholding medical treatment has been ruled child abuse in many states - usually after the child dies. Depends on the situation, the state, the resources available to Child Protective Services, and whether someone was willing to report the abuse. It also seems to depend on family income. The more money you have to buy lawyers, the less likely it seems that the state is willing to get involved.<br />
