DOMESTIC CORPORAL PUNISHMENT
Australia - parental smacking/spanking
With comment by C. Farrell
News item from Australian TV (Channel 9), 10 September 2006. (1 minute 38 seconds)
Richard Goncalves reports. A public opinion poll finds widespread support for spanking by parents (Australian English uses the British term "smacking").
Interview with non-smacking mother. Report of opinion survey in which almost half of parents thought leaving a mark during punishment was OK. Statement by the Childhood Foundation, which wants all smacking outlawed, incorrectly claiming that for states to allow parents to use CP is contrary to international law.
John Thwaites, Deputy Premier of Victoria, says there is no need to change the law. Brief comments by pro-smacking parents.
The sound is slightly out of sync in the latter part of the clip.
