Smacking children should be ruled out

'Smacking children demeans and devalues them' says the Archbishop of Wales.

Smacking children should be ruled out

The Archbishop of Wales will say tomorrow that physical punishment of children should be ruled out, and they deserve as much care and respect as adults.

Jesus believed that children were not just an asset for the future or a commitment to be undertaken for the sake of society. They were of infinite value as children. They deserved as much respect and care as any other human being.

– Archbishop of Wales Dr Barry Morgan
