charlize theronOver on Blogging Baby, Melissa wrote up this story about Charlize Theron saying that American kids are "running wild" because our laws prohibit parents from beating them. According to the story on Ireland Online, Theron evidently feels she benefitted greatly from the regular beatings she received from her mother Gerda - who, by the by, shot and killed Theron's father in self-defense, and was never convicted in the shooting.

Theron allegedly recounts how she never felt bad about receiving beatings; in fact, she says, after being beaten she would go to her mother and apologize. Theron, of course, has no children of her own right now, but apparently that doesn't stop her from thinking she can tell other people they should be beating their kids more often.
