Think Of The Children

Since the Kansas legislature has tabled for now the discrimination laws against the LGBT community, they’ve got to find someone else to go after.

A Kansas lawmaker is proposing a bill that would allow teachers, caregivers and parents to spank children hard enough to leave marks.

Current Kansas law allows spanking that doesn’t leave marks.

Rep. Gail Finney, a Democrat from Wichita, says she wants to allow up to 10 strikes of the hand and that could leave redness and bruising. The bill also would allow parents to give permission to others to spank their children.

It would continue to ban hitting a child with fists, in the head or body, or with a belt or switch.

Finney says she wants to restore parental rights, and improve discipline.

Please explain how legalizing child abuse will restore parental rights.

  1. Every year when school started, I got a form to fill out about disciplenary actions. I always wrote in big letters, no corporal punishment of any kind without me being informed and that I be there. So, my youngest got detention and I went in the building and yanked her out of detention hall; nothing was said. And my ex-wife was a school teacher and we made those decisions together. Those who are permitted to swing at a child is like a stand your ground law; we don’t need either.
