December 2017

The act of disciplining children as a form of punishment is slowly but surely becoming an act of the past. Physical punishment, also known as spanking or corporal punishment, is banned in many countries around the world. For instance, passed in Peru, a Law “prohibits physical and humiliating punishment against children and adolescents in all the environments.” Hopefully, this movement will encourage leaders to enact laws that protect children worldwide.
