Default No Spanking Legislation in California

(From the internet) A California lawmaker says she has proposed a law that would make spanking a small child a crime to be punished by jail time or a fine.

The bill, backed by Democrat Sally Lieber of San Francisco, a member of the state legislature, would outlaw spanking children three years old or younger and carry a possible penalty of jail time or a 1,000-dollar fine.

"I think it's pretty hard to argue you need to beat a child three years old or younger," said Lieber, who plans to introduce the bill next week.

The bill, which was still being drafted, would make the crime a misdemeanor and be written to ban "any striking of a child, any corporal punishment, smacking, hitting, punching, any of that," Lieber said.

According to Alfred Adler, in Chapter IX of The Collected Clinical Works of Alfred Adler, Volume 12:
"Understandably, most psychologies want to eliminate the spanking of children. Spanking always shows that a person does not understand what is going on, does not understand a child's life style, wants to change a symptom and not the whole personality. We cannot change a personality by spanking."
