Bad Parenting

The WCCO is now championing the cause of worthless POS child abusers.
In 2007, social workers got 1,076 reports of possible child abuse at homes in the county. In 2008, there were 1,270 reports, and that number and other disturbing ones show no signs of going down this year.

"Very concerning," said Victoria Johannes with the agency.

She blames one thing: the economy. She said she doesn't know for sure why the number of reports is up, but she thinks parents might be taking out their frustrations on their children, because they're worried.

You don't beat and abuse your children because you're worried about their well-being. You beat your children because you are a worthless parent who would have been better off sitting on a table saw at the onset of puberty.

Note: there is a (bigbigbig) difference between abuse and discipline.
