Mum Not Charged
Interesting article Garth, thanks for posting. I reviewed the video embedded in the article a couple times, and rewinded the part with the actual swat a couple times. A couple thoughts:
1. By how she did the swat, she used WAY too much force, at least I think
2. If you watch the swat, I was concerned it didn't look like the paddle connected to his bottom, but to his lower back. I have attached the picture of the swat the news article had.
3. The woman looked like she did it while she was furious with him, which I think we all know is not the best time to spank.
Those are just my two cents. I'd be interested to hear anyone else's opinion.

Spanking when not in control of yourself is a dangerous combination. It's far too easy to go over the line.

I'm glad that she won't be charged, but she should have spanked him with her hand and not with a paddle. Also, the spanking should have been at home and not in public. Someone should teach her the proper way to spank.
I echo the relief about charges.

I don't think spanking in public is necessarily wrong, but I agree it was not ideal. It looks like she only wanted to deliver one swat, and he was uncooperative.
I would agree that in this day and age, spanking in public is generally not approved of, and many onlookers would likely report such an incident to law enforcement.

I feel it is much better to handle discipline in the privacy of your own home. While I don't feel that using a "make do" paddle was wrong, spanking when in anger is.

I don't think it was appropriate to paddle him in public but I think it was right that she wasn't charged.
