The only person you can legally hit in the United States is a child.
Hit your partner, and you’ll be arrested for domestic violence. Hit another adult, and you’ll be arrested for assault. But hit a 4-year-old, and you can call yourself a “loving father.” That’s completely screwed up.
It should be against the law for a fully grown adult to slap, hit, spank, punch, switch, whoop, whip, paddle, kick or belt a defenseless child in the name of discipline. But it is legal, and new research in the Journal of Family Psychology suggests that the average 4-year-old is hit 936 times a year.
If study after study conclusively proves that hitting your kids doesn’t work as a disciplinary method, and worse, it has long-term damaging impact to their psychology and makes your kids more aggressive, why do we as a society allow it?

"Get Away" by CHVRCHES // Drive - ReScored (2014)
This is certainly something outside of the box. Nicolas Winding Refn's brilliant film, Drive, had what was undoubtedly one of the most riveting soundtracks in recent memory. It was not just a critical success, but a massive breakout hit due in part to the killer tracks chosen to accompany Cliff Martinez's hypnotic score (who incidentally was brought on last minute to replace synth-noir maestro, Johnny Jewel's original score). Suffice to say, despite some hiccups, the audio side of the film was an immediate success among fans. Now, fast forward a couple of years, and for some reason (boredom, perhaps), BBC Radio 1 host, Zane Lowe has commissioned an entirely new soundtrack from some of his favorite artists (including Foals, Jon Hopkins, BANKS, and much more), and managed to get the director’s blessing to re-score the film for a BBC 3 premiere at the end of the month. It certainly is an odd experiment, but hopefully one that will be fruitful for new and old fans of the film. Right now, you can here one of the contributions to the new score, “Get Away” by CHVRCHES. The new track feels fairly close to what was used the first time around - an emotionally driven synth pop jam that buzzes and pulsates with a melancholic atmosphere. It’s worth checking out, and if you like the idea and you live in the UK, you can check out Lowe’s re-scored version of Drive on BBC 3, the night of the 30th.
