Yahoo Parenting – Spanking is a divisive issue in America – according to one poll, 78 percent of parents say spanking can be appropriate, while most parenting experts warn against it. In the eyes of the law, though, it’s acceptable: Corporal punishment is legal in all 50 states.
But just to be on the safe side, one father in Florida called in the local authorities last week to supervise as he spanked his 12-year-old daughter.
“My understanding is that the father was going to render corporal punishment to his daughter,” Undersheriff Neal Stephen, of the Okeechobee County Sheriff’s Office, tells Yahoo Parenting. “She said ‘no you can’t, it’s abuse.’ And the father said ‘Okay, let’s call the sheriff’s department to find out.’”
If this guy was my father, the cops would have been at my house at least once a week. Bad grades, staying out to late, coming home drunk, not coming home at all. The list could go on and on. This father is in the early running for father of the year, showing his slut daughter a lesson. “You don’t believe me? Watch this!”
I love how this went down in the state of Florida. It is like the segment on the Shredd & Ragan show on 103.3 The Edge here in Buffalo, called OTF. Shredd and Ragan read an incident that happened in either the state of Ohio, Texas, or Florida, and the listener on the line has to guess. Some crazy stories have been read over the air, and I wouldn’t be surprised if this ends up on their as well.
This twelve year old girl better have learned her lesson or else the Okeechobee cops will be over again.
