Child abuse and discipline.

Air Date: 06/05/12 Child abuse laws are far from perfect.  Sometimes someone who is being abused doesn't have marks like bruises that others can see, and other times good parents are targeted over a simple accident.  Nevertheless, they serve a valuable purpose.  This week Cheryl talks about the difference between punishment, discipline, and abuse.  She also offers suggestions on whether or not spanking is necessary and the importance of good, effective teaching.  Parenting with Cheryl Erwine airs every Tuesday morning on 88.7 FM, KUNR, and can be reached at 775-331-6723 or
