September 28, 2018
Children, by nature, are playful and oftentimes, lack a sense of consciousness for whatever trouble they get into. As parents, we are in the position to decide on the best means of discipline, so that the child changes for the better. Sometimes, these methods involve smacking. However, this measure might be doing more harm than good.
Psychologists call for the ban of smacking children
Recently, the AEP (Association of Educational Psychologists) put forth a motion at the TUC conference for smacking and other forms of physical punishment to be outlawed.
