Quote from The Telegraph
Parents could be banned from smacking their children after the Government announced a full review of the law yesterday.
Family campaigners immediately denounced the move as "unnecessary state interference" and warned that it could criminalise responsible parents.
I've yet to appreciate the problem with smacking a naughty child in some cases, providing it is not done with such a degree of force as to leave a mark, as law currently permits.
Aside from the non-argument that it's not very nice for the child (isn't that the point?) - would anyone care to enlighten me?
