This document was produced as a presentation to the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child, during its day of general discussion on violence against children in schools and within the family.

Throughout the entire document, perspectives and experiences of children of physical punishment have been integrated into the text as it provides an analysis of the impact of physical punishment on children. The revelations of children often demolish adult assumptions about the necessity and justification of corporal punishment and reveal the power of disciplinary methods of alternative and positive discipline. This document also offers suggestions on ways to eradicate physical and humiliating punishment.
