Pessoal,

Recentemente, um dos assuntos que tem se destacado é o da 'Lei da Palmada':

'Why Brazil Says Spanking is a No-no'

While child abuse is already on the books as a crime, Brazil just made spanking illegal. Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva sent a bill to Congress last week banning domestic corporal punishment (or spanking). The bill says small scale, quick punishments for misbehavior are seen as 'cruel and degrading.' Parents caught breaking the law will receive a warning and possibly psychological treatment. 25 countries around the world, including Uruguay and Venezuela, currently have anti-spanking statutes. Opposers of the newly proposed anti-spanking law in Brazil say it is an attempt to 'forbid mothers from raising their children.'

Tell us, what do you think...

"- Xuxa causa tumulto na Câmara e defende "lei da palmada" no Brasil. Em uma reunião na Câmara, lotada de funcionários do Congresso e seus filhos, a apresentadora Xuxua Meneghel e a rainha Silvia, da Suécia, pediram nesta quinta-feira (19) que o Brasil adote a chamada "lei da palmada", para proibir os pais de abusarem fisicamente das crianças.

Tell us, what do you think? - Diga-nos, o que você pensa?

1. Are you for or against the 'Anti-spanking Law'? Why?


2. What do you think should be done?

Some (or most) of the forum users who raise kids do not spank them, do they? They can patiently talk kids out of doing wrong as they have so often done. Unless demonstrated or proven to the contrary, some (or most) of the forum users may not see spanking as a means of righting a misbehaving child. Neither do most of the Brazilian parents with whom some of the forum users may have lived.

Personally I would not feel comfortable hitting a child, much less anyone. I would not even encourage light spanking, no matter how much a kid misbehaves.

I don't have children's but I think if you want a children angry, hating their parents, just you need spanking him.
However , if you don't teach without some punishment, you are creating an enemy at home.
we have many more efficient ways to teach.
