Still child abuse.

Any form of abuse to young children in schools should in no way be tolerated. Even when I was a kid in the 90's I thought this law was around.
Here's a dilemma for you CyberCubed, and anyone else if they want to answer. What happens if you have a 5-10 year old kid, who doesn't want to be disciplined with "time-outs"? Who still throws tantrums after taking away their privileges, starts using profanity on their own parents, spitting on others, vandalizes their parents' home. ...And still continues to hit others when he/she doesn't get their way, making a big scene shouting and making tantrums, knowing that their parents' don't want to create a big scene in public? How would you handle the situation CyberCubed?

What a spoilt and bratty hypothetical child.

That's hard to do when a parent is an alcoholic, has a personality disorder, or suffers from some other serious psychological issue. And it's all too easy for even well-behaved kids to become victims.

Also, if a kid curses at people, vandalizes property, spits on people, and acts badly, they had to have learned that behavior somewhere. That sort of thing doesn't develop in a vacuum.

Unless he/she has genetically severe mental/emotional issues, that kid most certainly has parents who should be ashamed at their clear failures; either terrible parenting or an utter lack of it. Whole family should probably at least start with counseling...

And if they still refuse to straighten up, well... reform schools and others for problem kids are a thing for a reason. *stifles evil grin*

I agree. If a kid acts out that badly and there is no illness involved, it is a clear failure in parenting where the kid has learned he will get his way if he causes a big enough scene.

My mother would have dragged me out of the public space and I would have gotten hell from both parents at home. Terrible behavior should never be rewarded just to shut the kid up. If he gets what he wants by screaming and causing a scene, guess what? Junior learned a new skill.

ETA: “doesn’t want to be disciplined with ‘time outs’...”. WTF? What kid gets any say in the punishment? This puts too much power and control in the kids hands. I don’t care how you want to be punished. If you act out, there is a punishment. Period. Of my choosing.

I believe parents have a right to be treated with respect and honoured even if they're the most cruel and painful people you can imagine.

They have that right simply by being parents. Even expressing annoyance at them is absolutely forbidden in my moral values.

Katie, you don't have any kids, do you? Would you repeat the things your mother did with you if you did?

How are you defining honor and respect?

Talk to them with decency and don't go out of your way to belittle them.

If they are doing something wrong, lovingly explain their error to them without the slightest hint of annoyance and sarcasm in your voice.

If they ask you to do something thats not immoral, do it without questioning them.

Respect their wishes and financially support them.

If they wish to be left alone, do not disturb them but go out of your way to make sure they are doing well and let them know you'll always be there in case they need you.

Yeah, I never did truck with that Keep Sweet stuff.

I will always love my mother and father, but that doesn't mean I'm going to set myself on fire to keep them warm.

I do feel the need to add that for much of my growing-up years my mom had a sign hanging in the family kitchen:
Be nice to your children, they pick your nursing home.

I'm glad this is part of the definition. Because when you said "the most cruel and painful people you can imagine." Well I have a very good imagination. Let's just leave it at that.

I raised a child for the past six years. Not my biological child, but I raised him. And yes, I would absolutely have marched his a$$ out of a public space if he acted out like that.

He’s a good kid though and that’s because before his mom died she raised him well and punished as necessary. And from what I understand we have similar styles in that regard.
