Child abuse laws.


This week Cheryl talks about an opinion she read in the letters to the editor posing the question: "What is the world coming to when parents fear going to jail for disciplining their children?" It's a good question.  There are times when these laws cause misfires and hassles putting perfectly normal families through embarrassing weeks with social workers.  But these laws serve a very crucial purpose.   Children should know that nobody has the right to injure or hurt them.  But there are subtler issues at work here that Cheryl discusses in greater detail on this week's edition of Parenting with Cheryl Erwine.  Parenting with Cheryl Erwine airs every Tuesday morning on 88.7 FM, KUNR, and can be reached at 775-331-6723 or cheryl.erwine@sbcglobal.net.
