Adrian Peterson Releases Statement after Indictment for Child Abuse

This is part of Adrian Peterson’s statement on the child abuse charges he is facing after he hit his 4 year old child with a switch:

“I have to live with the fact that when I disciplined my son the way I was disciplined as a child, I caused an injury that I never intended or thought would happen. I know that many people disagree with the way I disciplined my child. I also understand after meeting with a psychologist that there are other alternative ways of disciplining a child that may be more appropriate.

I have learned a lot and have had to reevaluate how I discipline my son going forward. But deep in my heart I have always believed I could have been one of those kids that was lost in the streets without the discipline instilled in me by my parents and other relatives. I have always believed that the way my parents disciplined me has a great deal to do with the success I have enjoyed as a man. I love my son and I will continue to become a better parent and learn from any mistakes I ever make. ”

Do you think Adrian crossed the line? Is physically disciplining your child WRONG? At what point is it crossing the line?
