Another reason not to move to Boston!

Well first its cold, and i hate the Red Sox and the Celtics. Now they are trying to outlaw spanking in Boston. So I will not be moving there anytime soon. Heres the story that left me shaking my head.
"Lawmakers on Beacon Hill are set to consider a proposed ban on spanking children in the commonwealth. NewsCenter 5's Shiba Russell reported that the issue is set for debate at a Statehouse hearing Wednesday morning.The
Boston Herald reported that State Rep. Jay Kaufman filed the spanking
ban petition at the request of an Arlington, Mass., nurse who wants
Massachusetts to become the first state in the country to stop corporal
punishment.If this proposal does become law and
parents are caught hitting their children who are under the age of 18,
they could be charged with abuse or neglect."
Abuse is one thing that I definitely do not believe in, but spanking your kid on the ass when he/she deserves is not abuse. I was spanked and I am fine. I don't disagree with my parents for spanking me.

I'm with ya on this one! It's just another reason for children to act out and threaten parents who try to discipline them.

Sociological studies show that spanking is harmful to not only the child, but to society as well. Pick up a sociology book.

Let's look at it this way- When you spank a child, you're teaching them that hitting is the appropriate way to solve your problems. So don't bother trying to teach them that hitting is a no-no.

Being a hypocritical parent is not good.

Believe me when I say that when you resort to hypocrisy, kids notice. They're wondering why you're telling them one thing and doing another.
