  •  There's NEVER justification for a face slap period (6+ / 0-)

    This really makes me sick to my stomach.  What have we as a society become?  That child can't say a word.   That child doesn't have a voice.  We do. Whether this was a daily event or a first, this is not for us to determine. But, it IS up to us to report it!!!
    Look, if we make a mistake by over reacting, then child protective services will clear the accused.
    But to infer that parents have a right to discipline their children in any way they want, i.e. an abusive way, face slap or worse, is  always wrong.You questioned yourself because in your heart-of-hearts you knew you should have done something.  You were right.  And, by the way, bringing here to be discussed was a good thing...Thank you for letting me vent...
