Corporal Punishment, defined at the deliberate infliction of pain as retribution for an offence, is legal in
I also know many will say "Well I was beaten and I turned out OK". Sorry folks, but that just reiterates the reason why we should not allow this to continue. If you are beating your child because you were beaten, try and remember what you felt like when it was happening to you. Remember the feelings of absolute hatred you had toward your "beater" whether it was your mother, your father, or your teacher. Remember the feelings of humiliation, fear, and disgust. I challenge anyone to tell me they felt loved when they were being whipped! Our laws say a man can't beat his wife, so why is it OK for a man to beat his child? I have created this petition to highlight this issue, and to hear people's views on this issue. If you agree with me, sign it, and send it to everyone you know. It is time to STOP THIS MADNESS!
