aka “Sensational Title is Sensational.”

Let’s set the stage for you: Dad says his daughter is being disagreeable at the dinner table and spanks her. 14 year old daughter says dad left a red mark on her arm ripping her away from the dinner table…tells her sister…sister tells mom. Mom and dad are divorced, so mom had a domestic violence injunction filed on behalf of the daughter.

A Florida judge had granted that injunction, but just this week, a panel of three other Florida judges ruled that the father’s spanking was normal parenting and overturned the injunction.

Spanking’s a hot-button issue these days – but for what reads like a normal level of discipline, should domestic violence charges even be on the radar?
