My grandpa whoops us for his punishment whenever we do something wrong. He whips my little sister who is 3 yrs old and other brothers who are 5 and 9. My name is Rebecca and I am 10 yrs old and am getting whooped with a belt.
It's legal, until it's not. In other words, children can be spanked and disciplined, until such time as the spanking and discipline become abuse. Punishment has to be warranted, and it has to be proportional. (Penal Code section 273). If you are being bruised or cut by the belt, or have prolonged soreness, talk to your teacher, or school resource officer, or call CPS.
