I think there are more than 1 anonymouses (is that a word?) on these threads. I also think there are a few on this thread that share the same feelings,jobs, and experiences as I when it comes to spanking or hitting children. I am the one who says if you hit ANYONE, you are a bully. Sorry if you don't agree with me. Moving on....
I have worked at Children Services Board in Akron, Ohio. I have worked at Akron Juvenile Detention Center. I have worked in Massachusetts as a Caseworker. I have worked at a place for runaway and teenage girls in Ohio as well. I KNOW I have a lot of experience. I don't have to prove myself to anyone here, that is for sure. I no longer work at these places, not because I was fired or let go, but because the pay was too low and the positions don't offer any opportunity for advancement.
If I am argumentative, it is because I am passionate about the subject. I don't feel it is necessary or mature at ANY time to hit a child. I believe hitting leads to hitting. So, there ya have it. Go put THAT on your open hand & smoke it!
