Government Rules Out a Full smacking ban


My reasons why I support a ban are here and I won’t repeat them but to summarise, why would we want to teach our children that smacking sorts things out?  And why is it ok for us, as fully-grown adults, to smack children half our size and weight?  We don’t go around smacking adults who we feel have acted wrongly.  No, because it’s against the law to smack an adult.  Don’t children deserve that same protection?

What an utterly confusing message to give to our children.
