Default Re: Where do you draw the line between parental discipline and child abuse

Was the child damaged (ie, bruised/bloody/etc)? Was the worst the kid got was humiliation?

I ask because I was never 'spared the rod' (or the belt!) growing up. Of all the whippings I got I earned 98% of them, and I learned the lesson that was taught. I was never "damaged" physically or emotionally by these. That being said, I stopped spanking my son after 4 years old but when I did it was to get his attention ONLY.

I believe that if anyone saw my father and mother spank me or my siblings today, they would call DSS! I'm not saying what you witnessed wasn't abuse because I wasn't there. I just know everyone has a different threshold to meet the standard of abuse.
