Prohibiting all Corporal Punishment of Children: Answers to frequently asked questions

This is one of three booklets produced by the Global Initiative to End All Corporal Punishment with support from Save the Children Sweden.

These booklets should give parents and carers, government officials, education professionals and others the confidence to support and pursue legal reform and move a step closer to realising children’s right to protection from all forms of violence in all settings.

This first booklet dispels common misperceptions about the reasons for a legal ban and its impact on families.
