California court rules spanking with wooden spoon not abuse

Another whiff of sanity from CA.  But don't think I think this is a pattern!
The appeals court said the spanking came close to abuse, but that social workers and the lower court judge failed to consider the family's entire circumstances.

Gonzalez and her husband testified that other forms of punishment such as groundings and taking away her phone had failed to persuade their 12-year-old daughter to do her schoolwork and avoid gang culture. The parents said that other family members had testified that spankings in the household were a rarity.
The child welfare workers are still employed.  So they can make life miserable for more people.
