‘My mummy’s a criminal’

World class website from Family First NZ. It even includes a 29 minute video. New Zealand parents have been criminalized for disciplining their children. A good smack gets taken out of context and too many parents get faced with actions from the police and the courts. The anti-smacking law, according to Family First, is clumsy and ineffective. John Key even agrees, saying it’s a complete and utter dog’s breakfast, badly drafted, extremely vague. Almost like a program from any political party. It seems too much time and energy is being lost in prosecuting the innocent moms and dads who know the limits and don’t cross them. Maybe with help from our friend, Dr. Phil. All the agencies involved with childhood and child protection should focus on really getting the children in need out of violent environments and getting tougher on real child beaters and molesters.
