Once again, a woman who should never have given birth. That is no way to discipline your child. She deserves every charge that she is facing (in my opinion).
Time to do my homework.. :uhoh:
That's rediculous and sick. A perfect example of why people should be verified and signed off on before they can have children. That just pisses me off.

They seriously oughta introduce some kind of parenting test for women to take before being allowed to have kids. Come to think of it, that would help with underage pregnancy too...

Lol, I could picture that: Dr. Phil with a couple of bodyguards, talking to her across the stage with her in a straightjacket.
If that was me I would have run away from home a long long long time ago.
seriously, how smart do you have to be to know you don't hit your children with a hammer? :smack: some really dumb people out there who should never be parents . . . .
No! I'm Spamacus!

If you hit them hard enough with a hammer, there is a possibility that they may not be capable of doing homework for a very long time, if ever. Her choice of actions were illogical. :uhm:
