Yesterday, Paula went to court on an ex parte application to modify custody based on Robin’s alleged “spanking” of their 6-year-old-son Julian. So does the law allow you to spank as punishment? Absolutely! Studies (and more importantly, common sense) have repeatedly shown that DISCIPLINE is good for children. Children need to have boundaries.
Interestingly enough, Paula and Robin had am amicable divorce (with neither having attorneys), filed in October 2014, and finalized by Stipulated Judgment in March 2015. They have both been following the same custody orders (Paula Sunday to Thursday, and Robin Thursday to Sunday) since then. It appears that Paula appeared to take a page from Angelina’s playbook and summon DCFS. It will not fare well for her.
