    God forbid a patent discipline their child. That's the problem with today's youth. It's drilled into their heads that a parent can't spank them as a form of discipline. This story fails to describe the daughters part in all of this. Was she being disrespectful, did she skip school or was there another valid reason for the mother to have attempted to get the child under control?

    I agree for the most part. But I would like to know the injury the child suffered. Perhapes the mother did get a little excessive with the child. Depending on the situation any of us are capable of losing it.
