The Adrian Peterson case has obviously struck a nerve with former NFL star and football commentator, Chris Carter.
“This goes across all racial lines, ethnicity… People believe in disciplining their children. People with any kind of Christian background they really believe in disciplining their children,” Carter said while relating the story to his mother, who raised seven children by herself.
“My mom did the best that she could do … But there are thousands of things that I have learned since then that my mom was wrong.
“This is the 21st century; my mom was wrong…,” continued Carter. “And I promise my kids I won’t teach that mess to them. You can’t beat a kid to make them do what you want them to do.”
