Anyone who knows me knows I stand up for the rights of parents. But I think this is taking parental rights to an extreme. In the state of California, there is a law in process that would make spanking a child with an object illegal. Many parents are saying it is against their parental rights to not be able to discipline their children by using an object - a folded newspaper, a rod, at paddle, whatever. I do not think this particular law is taking away parental rights. There are so many other ways to discipline children without causing them extreme physical pain! I definitely hope this law passes!
Other than being a full-time unschooling mom, I am a graduate of Liberty University with a bachelor or science in religion, a bachelor of science in education, and a master of arts in human services: Christian ministries. I believe God is calling me to begin a type of urban ministry that focuses on emotional and spiritual abuse. You will see several blogs listed under my username. Dandelions and Daisies is no longer in operation, but I do keep the blog up to show some of the activities we conducted.
