A bit of parental discipline

A six-year-old in New Plymouth responded to his errant father's assault of the child's mother and threatening her with a knife by whacking the man on the nose and leg with a vacuum cleaner pipe, the New Plymouth District Court has been told. Ninja skills there! I'm no fan of corporal punishment, but this chap definitely sounded like he needed some firm guidance from his sensible son.
