LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A woman spanked her children after she says she caught them stealing and her subsequent arrest has touched off a firestorm about spanking, discipline, parental rights and abuse.

The question is — how much is too much?

The single mother of six apparently found out that three of  her kids (boys ages 10-13) broke into a neighbor’s house and stole property. After spanking the kids with a belt, she was taken to jail and her other children removed from her home.
