France follows 51 other countries after it passed a bill prohibiting spanking, corporal punishment and violence against children.
A 50-year-old study showed that spanking makes kids anti-social. Kids who suffered physical abuse in childhood tend to develop negative behaviors resulting to a much serious problem when they grow up.
Spanking worsens behavior in children, according to a new study.
Researchers reported that spankings could lead to future aggression and language woes in young children.
Fletcher, believes that Canada should remove a controversial mandate which protects parents who choose to use physical punishment on children under the law, claiming that the law does not "promote good parenting."
