It's Still Legal To Hit Kids In Canada, And It Shouldn't Be.

To date, 50 countries have banned physical punishment of children in all settings, including the home. Canada is not among them (and neither, incidentally, is the United States). No child deserves to be hit. There are things that children do that anger parents, or that put the child or others at risk, or are socially unacceptable, but there is never a reason to hit another human being to discipline or teach. What does this mean, in plain language? It means parents should not be allowed to hit or spank their children.
