Ban on spanking children: Would a ban on smacking help reduce violence in the community?

  • No, parents should have the right.

    No, as terrible as spanking is, there should not be a ban on it. It is not child abuse, but it is bad parenting. Parents should have a right to use spankings if they want to, even though personally I would never use a spanking. Parenting is the parent's choice, and if they want to be a bad parent, as long as they are not abusive, that is their right.

  • Spanking ban too difficult to enforce

    While most experts agree spanking is not necessary or even beneficial when raising children, it is an ingrained part of many cultures. We already lack the resources to adequately enforce existing child welfare laws - attempting to ban a common parenting practice would further clog the system and divert resources from cases of real danger.
