Save the Children’s position on the issue of corporal punishment. Save the Children’s aim is to end all corporal punishment of children. This may be achieved through education, legal reform, advocacy and children’s participation. Save the Children’s consultations with children in over 15 countries reveal the priority children themselves give to violence in their family and close environment, including the use of corporal punishment, as an issue that needs to be addressed.
