I don't have kids, but JayG at MArooned does. Please check out his post about his run-in with a do-gooder type. The article ends with an interesting thought:
"...had she really believed I was some uncaring brute who would willingly torture a six year old girl for fun, I doubt she'd have opened her mouth. Much like the do-gooders who called the cops on me for spanking my son - if they really thought I was beating him (they admitted to the cops that they saw me spank him on the behind with an open hand), calling the police would only escalate the situation. In other words, they're not really trying to help the children; rather, they're exerting power over someone else.
No wonder the Democrats are in power now."
