DOMESTIC/PARENTAL CORPORAL PUNISHMENT

Video clips: USA: Massachusetts

TV debate about spanking

With comments by C. Farrell



Three news reports from rival TV stations about the failed legislative bid to outlaw parental corporal punishment in Massachusetts (Nov 2007).


CLIP 1 OF 3

"To Spank Or Not To Spank Your Kids?", from WBZ Television Boston (CBS), 27 Nov 2007 (2 mins 14 secs). Proponent of the Bill explains why she wants to make domestic CP illegal. A public opinion poll shows little support for the idea.

CLIP 2 OF 3

ABC TV "Law & Justice" segment, 29 Nov 2007 (6 mins 14 secs). Report by David Wright followed by studio discussion with Jim Avila. Some scenes of parents spanking their small children are also shown. By the way, the film is incorrect to list the UK among the countries that have outlawed parental CP.
