dc.description.abstract This Note discusses the parental privilege to engage in the physical discipline of children and proposes that Indiana prohibit corporal punishment against children.16 Part I reports on the evidence social scientists have obtained regarding the effects of corporal punishment on children. Part II explores how other jurisdictions treat corporal punishment and the parental privilege, both in the United States and globally. Part III discusses the evolution of prosecutions in Indiana for offenses that result from parental use of physical force against children. Part III also briefly explains the provisions of the Indiana Code relevant to offenses involving physical force against a child, the standards for proving such offenses, and factors involved in obtaining convictions and affirmances on appeals. Part IV examines the entire court history of Willis v. State. Part V discusses the potential ramifications of Willis in Indiana. Finally, Part VI advocates for the reversal of Willis and a ban on corporal punishment in Indiana. (Author Text) en_US
