Europe-wide Ban on Smacking?

Published tisdag 7 juli 2009 kl 15.41
Elisabeth Dahlin from Save the Children Sweden

A child being smacked is not only humiliated but also is on good way of losing self-confidence argues a Swedish children's rights watchdog. If the head of the Swedish branch of Save the Children had her way, she would abolish corporal punishment of children across Europe. Elisabeth Dahlin told an international conference in Stockholm that parents are acting against the Convention on the Right of the Child when they subject their children to smacking. And in spite of the uphill struggle she expects because of the different child upbringing cultures in Europe, Elisabeth Dahlin is urging the Swedish government to take advantage of its presidency of the European Union to highlight the issue.
