Position Statement from Save the Children on corporal/physical and humiliating punishment of children.

Save the Children works towards eliminating all forms of corporal/physical and humiliating punishment of children in the home, schools and all other settings. We do this through advocating for legal reforms and supporting awareness-raising initiatives leading to social change affecting attitudes and practices. In addition, Save the Children promotes parenting and positive discipline programmes targeting caregivers, teachers and other people working with children. The importance of involving children and young people in our programmes on corporal punishment is crucial to our credibility as a child rights organization.

Actions towards ending all forms of corporal/physical and humiliating punishment of children should tackle both its legality and its practice.
