ABC Online has a story on a debate proposed by the ACT’s Domestic Violence Prevention Council on plans to outlaw parents making use of corporal punishment.
Former community advocate Heather McGregor raised the prospect earlier this year in her departing address.
She said physical punishment of children is rarely effective or justified and should be treated the same way as domestic violence.
Real domestic violence too hard for them so they decide to spend taxpayers money telling parents how to raise their children? Fascinating.
