Hitting children is never OK

Hitting children is never ok according child welfare groups.

Child welfare groups say it is never acceptable to slap another persons child for disciplinary reasons. Paul Murray spoke to Joe Tucci, CEO of the Australian Childhood Foundation,  about Cottesloe artist Derek Roach pleading guilty to the assault of a young boy being a nuisance at his property.

Blog comments Your Say

  • Surely, if, as Carole says, boatloads of rapists, murders and terrorists have arrived in this country disguised as refugees, we'd have suffered catastrophic consequence at this late stage in the game.
    Perhaps our cities would resemble those in Syria and people in other countries would sit,at a safe distance compassionately bemoaning the sorry state of affairs in this country.
    I can't imagine fleeing my homeland due to political or religious upheaval and persecution to then visit the same hell on the country in which I'm seeking refuge.
    It doesn't equate.

  • I am sick to death of the bleeding hearts. charity begins at home, let's look after our homeless first. we are letting people into this country who have enough money to pay for their boat trip so they are not poor. they throw away their papers so we dont know who they are.we could be letting in rapists murders terrorists who really knows what type of person is arriving here. we do get an idea when they set fires and riot, then we reward them with phone calls food and board and anything else they want.Not to mention medical care all free.I'm sick of it and the worse thing is we cant do anything to change the situation.When will politicians listen to us the people who pay their wages.
