This is not the first time she has been accused of abuse. I don't think this is a good starting point for a debate on the use of a belt during child rearing. The woman is mentally unstable. You might want to find another person as a catalyst for the debate.

I have a five year old and we don't use the spanking method of discipline. We use the time out method and now we are taking stuff away forever if she doe certain things deemed inappropriate...like slapping,hitting kicking or spitting. All of these by the way are part of early childhood behavior. How the parents teach their children it is wrong is always a judgment call.
When I was younger my mother would hit me on the top of the head with a heavy wooden spoon ...then tell me I better not rub it....ouch!
