YOUR TURN: Spanking

YOUR TURN Spanking

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - This week's Your Turn segment goes to Brenda Bonaventure. Bonaventure is one of many people who commented on our Facebook page about the Baton Rouge mother arrested for disciplining her three sons when they broke into a neighbor's home. She was charged with a felony because officials say the discipline went too far. Bonaventure and others are not so sure. In her words:

With raising kids these days, you are damned if you do and damned if you don't. If they had been caught breaking into that house by the police, everybody would be saying where were the parents, and blaming them for not disciplining their kids. We have a serious crime problem. She is trying her best to keep her kids on the straight and narrow so they can grow up to be productive men. I hope they drop the charges against her and she gets her kids back. Maybe they can also help her to get them some counseling.

That's Brenda Bonaventure's turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, visit us on Facebook or send an email to
