Should Parents Smack Children
Philosophy and Ethics
Should Parents Smack ChildrenThis issue has been surrounded in debate since the governmentintroduced the anti-smacking law in 2007.But why are people debating?Parents believe it is their right to discipline children in whatever way they see fit.They believe that smacking is the best way to make childrenbehave and keep themselves safe.Example: The kid heading towards a power socket with a knife
Should Parents Smack ChildrenBut doesn¶t smacking infringe on a child¶s rights?Is it morally acceptable to use physical force to modify a child¶sbehavior?This debate is always emotional. You hear parents yelling atcameras stating that they ³
are good, loving parents
´ and that theychoose to ³
deliver a loving smack 
´ to control their children. A loving smack? Is that different to a ³
loving kick in the head?
´Let¶s look at the situation rationally.
