A Kansas spanking bill would allow teachers and parents to hit children hard enough to leave bruises.
KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) – A Kansas lawmaker wants to give school teachers and caregivers more power to spank children.
Kansas House member Gail Finney, D-Wichita, said the bill is designed to restore parental rights.
It would expand the current law, which allows spanking without leaving marks. If Finney’s bill passes, it would allow up to 10 strikes of the hand and smacks hard enough to leave redness and bruising.
