You need to definately contact children protective services. Since the children are old enough to talk to the case worker they can tell the social worker what the mother does. If she fails to stop or if they can note any injuries its possible the children will be removed from the mother. You may want to seek a custody modification based upon the findings of children protective services.

It looks like the other expert opted out.

What state do you live in? I don't know of any specific laws saying you can't spank your children with a belt on their bare bottoms, but with a little more information I may be able to define it a little further.
