grandparent and spanking

My ten year old son just returned home from a month long visit with his grandmother (husband's mom). He shared with me that he was spanked, "karate chopped" (on the shoulder), poked and yelled at. Apparently he told my husband that he was spanked and dh told our son not to tell me!! I am so furious over this and would love to hear some feedback and opinions regarding this situation.

Ummm.....WOWZA! I am not sure what is worse, the grandparents physical punishment or your husband trying to hide it. They ALL need to be spoken to. It sounds like they were pretty physical with your son. I hope your son is ok. He is way to old to be spanked, and I firmly believe kids should not be spanked or hit in any way. Your husband just taught your son, that when you are hurt by someone else, don't tell your parents. That is NOT ok.
