NEW YORK, NY- When is spanking a crime?
A New York court just ruled in favor of a Long Island Dad who hit his 8-year-old son for cursing.
The court found that spanking was a reasonable use of force.
And other states are okaying it too.
Spanking is at the center of the New York state court case.
The state appellate court dismissed neglect charges against a Long Island father who spanked his 8-year old son for cursing at an adult, saying spanking did not constitute excessive punishment.
Criminal defense lawyer Arthur Aidala says the judge says as long as the punishment of spanking is within reason.
"The judge looks at the overall circumstances. There are so many children who unfortunately dont have fathers around. Here you have a dad who cares and is trying to teach his boy a lesson, you dont curse at adults, boom here's a whack," said Aidala.

This is HUGH and SERIES!!!
Im shocked that the judge didnt go nuts and throw the book at the “perpetrator”
It’s nice to see that a few rays of common sense still shine here and there.
Liberals believe that the more a child behaves, the more harm should fall upon him. That’s because liberals know that behaving children grow up into conservatives, while misbehaving children are more likely to grow up into liberals.
Finally, a whiff of sanity in a world gone mad.
When I was a kid my parent’s didn’t have to spank me for cursing, they just got a bar of wet soap and washed my mouth out with it. I think I only cursed once and have never cursed since.
It doesn’t take a village!
Thank heaven for fathers who love their children enough to nurture and discipline them.

We used 1-2-3 magic method. It works well up to a point.
And it only takes a few “3’s for them to get the message. The difference for me was that upon reaching “3” they got a 3 shot spanking not a 5 minute time out. The “time out” deal expired pretty early on and “corporal” made sure they understood the rules.
My hard and fast rule is: no more than three shots to the backside. There were pants up spankings, and pants down spankings, and they know the difference.
Also, I would count at varying speeds to inject a level of uncertainty to assure immediate compliance with the first directive.
My kids are 8 and 6 and I haven’t had to spank them but a few times in their lives. Once to the understood what it meant to get to “3” and, once pants down as what I called “capital” offenses.
Who brought the charges?
Who brought the charges?
Time to sue the everliving dog sh1t out of some people, I hope he gets some pit bull lawyer
That was my first question, although the comment that actually came to my mind was: Who's the moron that filed the charges?
Logic and reason take time to educate very small children into, and it should be done, and in the meantime a single
smack can stop something immediately, give the child pause
to think, and leaves room for reasonable discussion when
the child is ready for it.

I sometimes babysit my great-nephews. They are 2 and 4, so let’s just say there are some discipline issues.
One day, after the 3rd time-out, the older one looked at me and said “Don’t you just ever spank kids?!?!”. He was exasperated with this whole “you did this, you sit here, you tell me what you did wrong, you get up”. Major waste of his time.
I told him that only moms and dads and Grampa are allowed to spank. His timeouts have decreased. He knows what to expect, in the behaviour department, from me. And yes, I did spank my kids, but not after a certain age (probably about 4).
Swat on the butt is the exclamation point of life.
You cannot possibly reason with a two year-old, but they do understand a stern “No” with that exclamation point.
“”Who brought the charges?””
I also wondered how on earth this ever got to a court..
Freaking brilliant dialogue, as was "Schwartz got his".
We used liquid soap applied with the finger.
The whole movie is a treasure. Part of the Christmas ritual for my family. My wife still won’t let me get on of those lamps, tho.
on = one.
Same here. :-( But . . . my brother sent me a "leg" night night. Only thing is, I have to put it in the FAR hallway.
