AbstractDemocratic assemblywoman Sally Lieber of Mountain View California has proposed legislation to prohibit spanking a child three years or younger. While this type of legislation is novel in the United States, spanking laws are the norm in Europe. Proponents of the legislation say that it will make prosecuting child abuse easier, those who object claim that parents have a right to determine punishment for children without government interference.
