AS THE DEBATE ON banning corporal punishment rages on, a mother appeared in court yesterday after knocking out one of her ten-year-old son’s teeth and damaging another in the course of beating him.

The boy had refused to take a bath.

The weeping 40-year-old woman admitted to serious bodily harm and was admonished by Magistrate Elwood Watts in the Oistins Magistrates’ Court.

He told her what she had done was not corporal punishment but she had beaten the boy as though he was a man. (TKS)
