Fundamentally It's Child Abuse
John McKay at Archy
has been looking at child rearing among the "Culture of Life" and reports on two methods: the rod
and chemical burns
that some of these people advocate for "disciplining" children.
My basic feeling is that if you would go to jail if you did this to another adult, why would anyone think it was a good idea to do it to children? Shouldn't children be treated as well as dogs and cats?
Both children and pets need discipline and training, but violence only results in fear.
