Social Services going out of control

THE fact a mother could permanently lose custody of her eight-year-old son, because she smacked him with a hairbrush for misbehaving, clearly illustrates the idiocy of Social Services.
The 42-year-old single mother "saw red" after months of disobedience by her son and stress over her battle with breast cancer.
Holding a hairbrush at the time, she smacked her son twice on the shoulder when he refused to get ready for school.
When the boy told his teachers he was immediately taken into custody by Social Services.

What absolute rubbish. I was smacked as a child and it did me no harm whatsoever.

Children need to be disciplined within reason, and I firmly believe this mother's actions were well within reason.
And who knows how to handle a child better than its mother?
Social Services have waded in and made a mountain out of a mole hill, separating a mother and a son for no real reason.
Parents have a right to bring up their children as they think best.
Wrapping them in cotton wool will only result in a child who is unruly and lacks respect.
