Adrian Peterson's mother and former coach have spoken out about the NFL star's upbringing and use of corporal punishment, which they say helped, not hurt, him while he was being raised.
Bonita Jackson, Peterson's mother, broke her silence after her son was indefinitely suspended from the Minnesota Vikings. He has been charged with child abuse against his four-year-old son, whom he admittedly used a switch on as punishment. The boy was left with bruises and cuts, but Peterson has said that he never meant to hurt his son.
He is "trying hard to be a good parent," Jackson told the press. She added that she and Peterson's father, Nelson, were "big disciplinarians," who used belts and switches, as well as their hands, to spank all six of their children. "When you whip those you love, it's not abuse, but love." more >>
