What the Bible Says About Discipline?

Delaware Law Bans Parents from Spanking their Kids -- Thursday, 27 September 2012 --
Delaware has become the very first state to pass a controversial law that effectively outlaws the corporal discipline of children by their parents. Senate bill 234 was signed into law by Governor Jack Markell on September 12.  Sponsored by Delaware’s Senate Majority Leader Patricia Blevins, the bill redefines child abuse laws to include any act that causes “pain.”
