It amazes me that the spanking left welts, yet *that* is not what they are complaining about! If a parent spanked their own child in such a way that it left welts, CPS would get involved.
Yeah, that's pretty strange. I was at the zoo the other day and these two parents were yelling very loudly at their little boy (who was maybe four) and the dad spanked him really
hard. Probably enough to leave a welt. I didn't really know what to do or say. I was just perplexed. I couldn't even imagine being in the room with this being done to a teenager. I can't even wrap my mind around how absurd this spanking thing is.
