Parents smack your kids

British Lib Dem MP John Hemming is urging PM Cameron to allow parents ‘to smack children’. He says the state interference is damaging family discipline. Since New Zealand has the same kind of rules against child discipline we should listen to Hemming. How can we avoid our society slipping as low as the Brits. Parental authority has been undermined by years of legislation including confusion over smacking children. The riots proved discipline had broken down. Correctly smacking your kids rarely does any long-term harm. The only harm to the child and society is done by letting that child grow up in an undisciplined manner.
