And since I don't know the severity of the assault (so to speak) on the child, and can't attest to whether it is legal spanking or illegal abuse, I would definitely involve whoever is qualified to make that judgement. I would report a case of suspected abuse, and let the matter be...

Spanking isn't assault or abuse according to the law. You really think CPS would take a call about a parent spanking a kid in a public place seriously?

I didn't wean Gus before he went to his dad's house for 10 days. He was fine but when he came back, that was that. I tried to nurse him and he looked at me like I was insane! He was 13 months old.
I got my MIL in the divorce! Seriously, I adore her and even though I left her son and moved 500 miles away we are still close. She rocks.

I am very much over my ex, ready to move on, blah blah blah. He has a girlfriend now, lets call her S. I'm thrilled for him. He isn't the type to be alone and frankly, he was making my life hell before S came into the picture. Now he's all happy and distracted. All the better for me. He comes to PA 2x a month to...

i have 4 kids. i was "done" after two, and again after three! my dh just had a vasectomy two weeks ago, so we are really done this time. for me, once i had my fourth i knew w/ no hesitation that i was actually ready to never have another baby. the feeling after dh's procedure was one of supreme relief. even now, i will have flashes of joy that my baby making days are past. what i'm saying is that i thought i was done a few times before i actually was. but the...
