    Default If you're from Boston and spank your kids, WATCH OUT!

    http://www.thebostonchannel.com/news...0410&qs=1;bp=t

    BOSTON -- Should parents be allowed to spank their children? Massachusetts lawmakers will be debating that question following the filing of a bill that would ban corporal punishment in the commonwealth.

    NewsCenter 5's Kelly Tuthill reported that state Rep. James Marzilli, Jr., of Arlington, Mass., is one of the sponsors of the bill, which prohibits everything from spanking to "hot saucing," which involves putting undiluted Tabasco sauce in a child's mouth.

    In April, a Plymouth, Mass., father landed on the front page of local papers and behind bars after he used a belt to spank his son Josh, 12.

    "He forgot his book. I went upstairs, I got my belt. I came downstairs. I gave him three swats on the rear end, with his pants on, like any concerned parent would do, and scared him, of course, you know. Hopefully I got the point across," Charles Enloe said.


    But now, lawmakers are considering making "the willfull infliction of physical pain on children under 18," illegal. The measure would prohibit corporal punishment including whipping, spanking and pinching. Also forbidden would be washing a child's mouth out with soap and administering electric shocks.

    The bill comes two weeks after Brookline, Mass., Town Meeting passed a non-binding resolution encouraging parents not to spank. The Supreme Judicial Court addressed the issue after a Woburn, Mass., minister used a belt to spank his 9-year-old son. In 1999, he was cleared when the SJC ruled that parents have a right to spank their children if it does not cause substantial risk of injury.

    The bill appears to be unprecedented. Supporters said it's all about preventing abuse, not prosecuting parents.

    You should never abuse your children, but a well placed spanking is just fine. I think a lot of people today tend to think that a spanking and a beating are the same thing. I was BEATEN as a child, and I have seen spankings....they are definitley not the same.

    Ironically, you're encouraged to kill children in Mass, but you can't spank them.

    In Illinois, you can use corporal punishment was long as no marks (welts, cuts or bruises) are left. Personally, I believe that removing privileges from children is the most effective discipline method.

    DON'T even get me started on this one! For the past several years I, as well as most other teachers have seen lack of self discipline, lack of respect for adults, lack of respect for society itself, and I blame all of these new age thinkers on this! This whole thing where it is wrong to spank or even talk down to a child is a bunch of crap! I am really scared this generation of kids coming up. I could write a whole freakin book on this, but I'm gonna shut up because this whole topic gives me a headache!

    Oh, and I forgot to add.... this year alone I have seen the biggest spoiled rotten brats that expect you to give them life on a silver platter! And I have seen more parents that don't believe in telling the child "NO" Ok, I'll shut up.
