Laws / Canada I recently heard. The person could have misheard what the news said but anyway. Apparently spanking is now or was but is now reknown to be legal in Canada for parents to spank children? Just wondering if anyone knows if this is true? If so what are everyone's thoughts. I think physical punishment on a child is the result of the parent being unintelligent or not calm enough to deal with the situation. Plus if you are hit by someone your aloud to hit them back in self defense. Whats going to happen when a parent things they are special and spanks a teenager. They'll end up getting in the hospital because their weight lifting jock of a kid beat them up in self defense. Thoughts? Maybe my Step-Dad didn't hear right. I hope thats the case. I believe non-violence is the true way to solve things and physical punishment just buries things. Post Post Mania!
