We have so many in our society already who are abusing children....now someone in Kansas is bringing a bill forward so parents, teachers and caregivers could spank the child until it leaves marks and bruises!! What is wrong with this idiot??? Maybe someone should slap her until it leaves marks, then see how she likes it!!

A bill to propose hitting a child hard enough to leave a mark? Sweet Jesus! With the rest of their obscure morality-based laws, no doubt that Kansas is the most backward state in the union.

Why stop at children, Kansas? Wives should be near the top of the list also, and let's not forget about young people in hoodies that may irritate you. Crying babies on airplanes is another thought. Is secession a possibility with you folks?!

I don't understand why people NEED to hit their kids in order to get them to behave decently. I only remember being spanked twice as a kid, but yet all the kids in my family grew up to be productive citizens who don't lie, steal, use drugs or get arrested. This leads me to the conclusion that if the only way you can get your kids to behave decently is to beat the crap out of them, then maybe there's something wrong with the way you are raising them.

How about a compromise Gail, kids can be beaten up to slight bruising and congress people can be beaten up to and including whipping welts.

Spanking is more of an outlet for a frustrated parent. It is not discipline and sends the wrong message. If you can not be creative enough to discipline your child in other ways, you should not be a parent.

Kansas is a state with a child abuse problem! There is something wrong in "bible belt land".

Only in the bible belt. Amazing that these adults think this is OK. Maybe they need to pass a bill authorizing the rest of us to hit them hard enough to leave bruising and welts. Of course, we will use an open hand.

Isn't Kansas also the state that wanted to get rid of child labor laws?
