Looks like we aren’t getting ice cream today…

Hi there,

As a parent and grandparent I have long felt it was a necessary right of parents to swat their kids on the behind occasionally. Swift justice often makes the most impact.

I was somewhat astonished to open Lawyers Weekly today and discover that the Supreme Judicial Court agreed with me.

However, if you are in the midst of a contested parenting case, I recommend that you don’t spank your children, as it will be held against you. An effective alternative could be restricting the use of their iPhone or Nintendo, which is often a powerful consequence for kids!

Best,
Nancy
