Half-joking (only half, mind you)....with all of this non-lethal tech. the military is issuing to subdue enemy combatants...why not develop a low
powered taser or microwave/pulse device that delivers a corrective measure against children who would respond to nothing else?
Now please, before I am judged, I believe parenting is an extremely interactive and exhausting process that requires knowing your children. I try
desperately not to strike my child, and have on occasion, but it is something I do out of the last resort...not out of corrective practice.
As far as outlawing the practice...here in the United States, as long as parents are within the limits of the context of parenting care and no lasting
physical harm has taken place, it would be difficult to legislate a ban here.
I am not condoning striking a child, but I am defending a parent's right to decide what is right in the hopes they see the truth.
Don't hit your kids.
