Police reported finding a small amount of marijuana on a teenage girl during a domestic violence investigation Friday.

The Norwalk Police Department reported responding to "a fight involving family members" on West Seminary Street at 8:38 p.m.

After a brief investigation, police arrested a 15-year-old girl on a domestic violence charge in connection with "striking her grandfather and threatening him with a knife," Capt. Dave Smith said.

"The subject, upon arrest, was also found to be in possession of a small amount of marijuana," he also said in his report.

The girl was transported to the Seneca County Youth Center to be held for a Huron County Juvenile Court hearing on Monday.

heres where the problem lies when i was a child i got my hiney whooped many of a time now days they try call it child abuse. when i was a kid nobody questioned it and sure some times i hated that butt whiping but it made me think twice before doing it again and now im older i thank god i had a mother who whiped my hiney kept me on the right path in life. The right to spank your kids has been taken away and its why you see storys like this day after day!

I got spanked, my son got spanked, my parents, grandparents, & so forth..It didn't hurt or traumatize us in any way..As someone else said, there is a difference between spanking & beating a child..I deal with the public every day..If I talked to my parents the way some of these mouthy brats do today, I would probably be missing some teeth..I was brought up to respect..Our parents could take us any where & not have to worry about us acting up, mouthing off, or not being able to find us..There are times when I want to spank not only the kid, but the parents for being so disrespectful in allowing the brats to act or talk that way..

I use to get spanked and occasionally get beat if I messed up bad enough. Sometimes it went to far and sometimes I deserved what I got, but I will tell u this, before I did something that I knew I would be in trouble for I thought about it real hard. I was scared to disappoint my parents and I knew there would be consequences for my actions. I have a seven yr old son and he has only had a spanking or two in his days, but he is very respectful and normally is good with a time out and a talking to. My nephew on the other hand listens and responds better to a whopping. Like said it depends on the personality of the child, and it really comes down to the parents awareness and dedication to there child's life and there future. Parents need to be more aware and involved in there kids every move. To many parents let there kids do what ever they want at way to young of a age.

These are the call signs for help that everyone says someone should have picked up on. Whats the next step, a gun? Get the girl help and keep her away from sharp objects.

The kid from Willard who shot his mom in the back had threatened her before with knifes and so on. I couldn't agree more with your statement...even though she just said it, it does need to be taken into consideration when the judge is ruling. I hope that the girl gets some much needed counseling.

My mom's evil hairy eyeball was traumatic enough, My grandma's was worse...LOL!

I'd rather have a beating than those two things!!

humpty_dumpty

anyone who dont know theres difference between a spanking and a beating was prob a child who had parents who never taught them anything. not all kids but many take a look t them today desrespecting elders- talking filth- pants off there hiney in public WHY cause parents dont spank them teach them RESPECT!

Dad & mom. What's that? It all starts at home. Bet this girl is a product of divorce too.

So, are those YOUR stats, kURTje, on kids who come from divorced parents? I know a lot of kids who's lives go on to be nothing but productive, not a product. The products usually come from the single mothers who's kids are all 'daddied' by a different guy and they all lean on each other for support because momma is 'busy'. No father makes more sense than sharing a week with one. At least they know they have one, and he cares.

Does anybody remember ten years ago when Paul Efaw on Route 99 in Monroeville had an eleven year old foster girl named Connor Dixon. He stabbed the little girl to death in the shed out back of his house and claimed it was self defense. He only did three years. Only in good ole Huron County is this legal.

Read this, codes.ohio.gov/orc/2919.22 pay attention to section b part 3.
You online lawyers who don't take the time to look something up always make me chuckle a little.

JakeMac25

Well it all makes sense now...a lot of people claiming to have been spanked....

from section 4

"...if continued, will seriously impair or retard the child's mental health or development"

And this whole time I was blaming the water...shame on me...

ladydye_5

So you are saying my kids are "impaired or retarded" because I swatted their butts as toddlers?

ladydye_5

A spanking is still NOT covered in that.... "is excessive under the circumstances and creates a substantial risk of serious physical harm to the child" (a swat on the butt is NOT excessive or serious physical harm, that would be a BEATING).

Everyone is fam...

Exactly what I was going to post. Key word is EXCESSIVE. And as far as damaging: My children are far from damaged. One graduates this year with great grades, happy, healthy, and has glowing letters of reccomondation for the forensics/law enforcement field. What is damaging, is raising a child in a puppy dog, lollipop, rainbow fantasy world. It's a cruel world out there and coddling your child is NOT preparing them for real life. And lack of proper discipline is damaging their future as well.

jake says he dont believe in spankings now makes it as though kids who are spanked grow up mental probs or retarded. sorry jake i call it like i see it and if anythings retarded its your post

Faking It Until...

As the mother of this child I find MOST of you on here to be the usual Norwalk flunkies. This child IS a brat, However she also suffers from a mental Illness & had not taken her meds in over a week! I have whipped this kid & smacked her mouth more times than MOST of you can count. Then through seeking help for her I learned that with this mental illness no amount of physical discipline would work. I have spent 3 years taking this child to mental health professionals in Akron, Sandusky, & Norwalk. How easy it must be to sit behind a keyboard & judge someone you DO NOT know. Instead you should count your blessings that YOUR children are healthy. She will pay for the laws she broke as she well SHOULD. As for MY parenting, I believed her when she said she had taken her meds. Lesson learned for me to watch her from now on. The rest I will not even justify to such lame people who judge others without ALL the information.

Everyone is fam...

If the child needs help, focus on her and not what everyone thinks. Best of luck.
