France Says Non to Spanking
As of tomorrow France will no longer allow spanking. There are only four European countries that allow it now including Switzerland, Italy, UK and Czechoslovakia. This does no surprise me though I feel it may have been more appropriate not to outright ban it but perhaps have certain restrictions placed on it like Canada has done. I doubt the UK or any Commonwealth country will ever completely ban spanking in my life time and it may never ever be banned in such countries as USA. I think spanking does have its place when it comes to discipline and banning it all together seems to me like "throwing out the baby with the bath water!"

I'd imagine a great number of parents in France will do as parents do in other countries which have infringed on their parental rights - ignore it and do what they know is best for their children and families.

I am with your opinion. Child abuse must be fodbidden, but to ban spanking is a wrong idea

Bad parents are not the type to obey laws.
This will only give good parents the difficult choice of spank and break the law ( not being found out still means law has been broken ) or struggle with alternatives.

The French on the whole treat law a great deal more freely than we "Anglo-Saxons". For example, "European Directive" in England means something to be obeyed, "directive" in English having a certain coercive force. In France, "directive" means something more like "advice" or "guidance" and European Directives which don't seem suitable are likely to be quietly ignored.

I suspect the same will happen over spanking. I don't expect to see the martinet disappear from the quincaillerie any time soon.

Bonjour Garth.
Je vais bien, et toi?


Edit: I think, that was my whole French vocabulary. I only learned English, Latin and Spanish at school.
