S/O Am I the only one that had no idea spanking was still allowed in some states?

I seriously had no idea kids could still be spanked in school, if you don't live in those states that do allow it, did you know it still was allowed? Would you move to a state that allowed it?

I also had no idea!! It is horrifying to me that it is happening and that parents allow it.

I missed the part where this said school. I had heard this in a recent post. But no, I would not give the school permission to spank ny children.

ETA I think it is legal in my state, but not practiced in our public schools.

I live in one of the states it is legal in and was not aware! No one will physically punish my child. We do it extremely rarely and only in extreme circumstances (last time was when dd ran full speed away from me in a busy parking lot).

I didn't know until a few months back when I found this website...http://www.stophitting.com/ There are so many states that still allow it! They even show the statistics for the worst states for it.

ETA : hrees the states that allow it http://www.stophitting.com/index.php?page=statesbanning

Glad it's illegal here. Sad to see it's still legal in my home state (GA) but not surprised. I don't see that changing, either.

I know, sorry, I had to edit it to specify in school.

For the people that live in a state where it is legal, is it only in private schools? I wonder if your (general you) child goes to a school where spanking is practiced, you could opt your child out of it?
