End Physical Punishment of Children

02-05-2006 22:20

International No Smacking Day
With the evidence we now have, we know better, in that even if force does not cause physical harm it can cause emotional injury that we may not be able to detect or which may not be apparent until much later in a child‘s life. I suggest that in the 21st century we can no longer accept that such harm caused by physical punishment is “reasonable”. Medical, psychological and criminological research (that I will refer to later), published by Margaret McCain and Fraser Mustard, in Canada, David Olds in America and David Farrington in Cambridge England, provide conclusive evidence that such negative and abusive forms of child rearing impact adversely on a child’s future life, and have adverse consequences for society too.
