    If that was my kid I would have fanned the kid's fanny and have the kid personally and publicly apologise for the assault.

    For one thing some of us from my age 48 and up didn't get raised up with
    Dr. Spock and those who push child abuse a little too far. It won't kill a
    kid for getting it's fanny blistered. I'm living proof that discipine works
    and sometimes a little harsh does the job. These young girls who get
    pregnant as early as twelve are a disgrace. A kid having a kid. My dad
    would have took the roof off the house if he found out I was pregnant at
    twelve. He didn't like it after I got married and I was 26 wanting to start
    a family with my new husband.

    Well, then there's an issue of a stressless upbringing.

    Yes, the *broken windows theory* - If they sense they can get away with it, they will then graduate to the next level of mayhem, and it finally ends with them in prison for the rest of their lives or having committed suicide by cop.

    These so called laws have it where you can't even touch your kid and it's
    child abuse or mistreated sexually. You get in trouble for disciplining your
    child in public. I've had my hands smacked many a time for picking up
    something and my jaw popped for back talking. After a while you learn
    not to do these things. I have always got my things stolen by people who
    can't keep their sticky fingers off and they know just how to steal.
    I stole something one time and my dad got a tree limb and tore me up.
    That tought me a lessen. Now days it's called child abuse. I don't. It is
    better that parents teach the kids right from wrong instead of the long
    arm of the law later.

    Hi Judy, I quite agree with you. When I was a child I would never be allowed to do anything bad, my parents were allowed to punish me. And for most kids all it took was a chat with the local policeman. The trouble nowadays is that there are no policemen on the streets, and if there were they would not be allowed to give a naughty child a clip round the ear.

    The kids know they can get away with it, so they do.

    Me too, Judy. I can tell you I had my share of bloody noses from being on the receiving end of the back of my mother's hand...but I deserved it for mouthing off. I can't believe that people refuse to discipline their children nowadays. You should have to prove that you can be a parent before actually giving birth...you need a license to drive a car, don't you?

    As for these people who call the police when they see a parent smack a kid in public, I bet they wouldn't like it too much if THEY were given the little snot to take charge of.

    I once was in the grocery and a mother and a kid about 9 years old were behind me. The kid was screaming that he wanted something. She said no. He had a tantrum and screamed nonstop. She gave him a little slap in the mouth and told him to behave. Someone whipped out their cell phone and called the cops. When the woman got to the parking lot, she was arrested. My opinion, that person that called the cops should have been REWARDED with being given the kid to bring up.

    If that were my kid in the video, it would be off to military school or at least reformed school.

    Well, Here in France children still have much respect for there parents/Grand Parents. Could it be a matter of upbringing? I ask someone else! Where I live
    in the SW of France we have no such problems. There again, we are "old europe". Nice.

    I think also the trouble is that nowadays families are so spread accross the country. Certainly they seem to be here, no grandparents just down the road to give guidence, most of the parents both work, my mother never worked when we were growing up. She always knew where we were, and what we were doing.

    I Agree 100%. Sadly Judy, America sometimes projects a very bad image. Which MOST Americans would not recogonise. It is called "The Bush gang" sic.
