Corporal punishment is a violation of international human rights, but its "reasonable use" is still permitted in Australia.

Should corporal punishment be banned? If not, should the definition of "reasonable use" in legislation be made more specific?

I H A T E Corporal Punishment!!!

It is Not needed in 2014-15 ever.
A total disgrace.
Yes, absolutely without any doubt. I can't hit my partner if I'm angry, I can't hit my father if I'm angry, I can't hit a stranger on the street ..... WHAT GIVES ME THE RIGHT TO HIT THE PEOPLE WHO DEPEND ON ME FOR EVERYTHING!

I understand just how frustrating children can be, but violence is never the solution.

I thought it was illegal?
by Finy
"The degree of physical punishment that a parent or carer can use with a child is subject to legal regulation in Australia. In most states and territories, corporal punishment by a parent or carer is lawful provided that it is carried out for the purpose of correction, control or discipline, and that it is "reasonable" having regard to:

the age of the child;
the method of punishment;
the child's capacity for reasoning (i.e., whether the child is able to comprehend correction/discipline); and
the harm caused to the child (Bourke, 1981)."

NO not for children. I hate corporal punishment and I hate verbal abuse and sarcasm with children as well. None of them asked to be born.
