How many children have died from smacking?

Cheers, Ross

None.

But plenty of children have been physically and emotionally injured by hitting - some scarred for life.

Hi - many more children have been emotionally injured - psychologically scarred from harsh unkind words from their parents - hatred and anger being commonplace in the home.

And remember Anon, hitting does not equal smacking.

Surely anonymous a light spank or smack on the bottom of a young child - by caring parents trying to help them live within loving and correct boundries of responsible reason is more important for the development of principles, rules and values of society within a child ?
