Open Forum : Corporal Punishment
Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is in the headlines this week, after multiple allegations of child abuse surfaced. He faces charges in Texas for whipping his 4-year-old son with a tree branch. His lawyers say the charges they’re unfounded, and Peterson, who was publicly subjected to corporal punishment as a child, is both defending his parenting skills and his place in the NFL.
What do you think of corporal punishment in parenting? Is it justified or is it tantamount to child abuse?
