So, the cynical pretence that families are constantly beating up their own children?

If you'd kindly back that up?

I suspect the same is true of you.

Unreal.

The most heartening thing in this thread for me is the likes of you and the gardener who advocate being allowed to give the kids a bit of physical chastisement, are people without kids.

The loss to the planet on your genes petering out, not with a bang but a whimper, I'll leave for others to judge.

Your true spite is there for all to see. Because of this you describe the people that you disagree with as 'people who like hitting kids', a deliberate lie.

Based on the feedback on here it is a completely daft and and unenforceable law that is absolutely not needed. I can't think of any friends or relatives that have ever hit their children and those that would consider that surely will hit there children anyway?. It just means more money wasted more stretched social services more police resource and more court time wasted...for a crime that would apply to such a small minority.....would'nt this be better self regulated i.e you see s friend or family member striking a child you intervene or you are out in public and see it happen you intervene or take a picture and then report culprit....

A small tap on the hand if a young child is about to pick up a sharpe object that might do it harm I am not sure is child abuse? and just imagine the number of children who do have difficult up bringings and at certain times in their lives could use it to cause havoc for some decent parents...

it makes me feel uncomfortable....

A few things...

- Making it illegal means you can intervene without being told to clear off and mind your own business.
- It's not just about protecting children from violence it's also about educating them and setting a good example. Resolving these things even with mild violence and a show of superior strength isn't the best preparation in life for our kids.
- Kids don't respond to corporal punishment as well as communication so it's self-defeating from the start
- Once upon a time, you could make almost your same entire argument for child sexual abuse. It's a sign of the times how we've moved on from that. And I'm sure we'll all look back on smacking kids the same way.
