My name has been added. Physical punishment (i.e. a smack) can be an appropriate form of discipline in some cases. Making it illegal seeks to make out the vast majority of good, caring parents tasked with the responsibility of raising their children to be made out to be abusers. That is over-exaggeration.

Real cases of abuse will not be stopped by the repeal of this legislation, and real cases of abuse do not get away with violence based on this law.

I support a tighter definition of the law. The anti-smacking brigade do not. Their agenda is clearly to ban even a "loving smack".

The other point not understood by the people sitting on the fence, is the line that a "little smack" will never be prosecuted. They misunderstand the powers CYFS will pick up, and how these cases will move around the court system. Read up on some of the links, to see how many thousands of parents were unfairly affected by a fundamental change in philosophy.

Bruises on your kid from a accident at home? The Left-Wing Kindy teacher will be reporting you for smacking. The climate of opinion changes, and so do the base line assumptions. This is about more than a law change.

CYFS already have a no smacking policy and yet they can use "reasonable force" under the recent amendment to the CYFS act to uplift a child.. hmmm... so the state can use reasonable force against our children but we parents cant???...Add me to the list
