This is a bill intended to protect children from exploitation. It would redefine "serious physical injury" to include nonphysical coercion of someone. This would appear to prohibit a parent from insisting that a child obey any command with consequences attached for disobedience. If the child felt coerced to obey the parent, this would constitute "serious physical injury."
Referred to committee. See "Bill History" link below.
