"It should not, one would have thought, have been beyond the ability of our Parliamentarians to come up with a law which says a slap on the hand or bum with the open hand is OK, and anything else is not. But it looks like they can’t manage that."

- Transtasman, 15 March 2007

It is a pity that people have distorted the anti smacking debate. The issue is that family violence must stop and men are the main perpetuators of violence against children and women.
As a father of 5 children I support the anti smacking legislation.
