Disturbing Trend in Parental Rights

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!
