wooden spoon spankin

A state appeals court yesterday tossed out child abuse findings against a frustrated Northern California mother who spanked her 12-year-old daughter hard enough with a wooden spoon to cause bruising. The 6th District Court of Appeal in San Jose reversed the child abuse determination made by the Santa Clara County Department of Social Services. Social workers reported Vernica Gonzalez to the state Department of Justice's child abuse database with a "substantiated" abuse determination. That determination was upheld by a trial court judge. The appeals court said the spanking came close to abuse, but that social workers and the lower court judge failed to consider the family's entire circumstances. Gonzalez and her husband testified that other forms of punishment such as groundings and taking away her phone had failed to persuade their 12-year-old daughter to do her schoolwork and avoid gang culture. The parents said that other family members had testified that spankings in the household were a rarity. All I know is that it’s a good thing my parents weren’t reported; they weren’t abusive, but I DO remember my dad poking my brother’s hand with a fork during dinner, not enough to poke thru the skin or anything, but it got his attention. Anyway…what d YOU think?
