Smacking to be banned
MUMS and dads could be banned from smacking their children.
Last night campaign groups and MPs demanded the time had come for the Government to act, as Children's Minister Beverley Hughes ordered a review of the law which allows the "reasonable punishment" of youngsters.
Recent polls have found parents believe smacking is an acceptable way to discipline children.
The government should keep their noses out of parenting. Parents have every right to discipline their children. If MPs don’t like it then tough! They can stop smacking their own children but when it comes to children that are not theirs they should shut the hell up.
It’s time they did what the people want for a change and allow smacking of children.
