Rules discipline and punishment go hand in hand with caring and guiding in a normal society of kids today. Newer the less there are rules sat in place by people that are not helping bring up kids in a normal way because the kids now got a tool there can use to get back on the parents or quardians with. Newer argue with a child they love it.
If you don’t get told what you are doing wrong how do you know the different, kids are the same they need to know from a young age. Set rules and newer punish a child in anger tell them why they get punised and hopefully after some time it will change for the better.
I found a Law from 1961 regarding parents control just comon sense really.
Every parent of a child and every person in the place of a parent of the child is justified in using force if the force used is reasonable in the circumstances and is for the purpose of—
preventing or minimising harm to the child or another person; or
preventing the child from engaging or continuing to engage in conduct that amounts to a criminal offence; or preventing the child from engaging or continuing to engage in offensive or disruptive behaviour; or performing the normal daily tasks that are incidental to good care and parenting. Nothing in subsection (1) or in any rule of common law justifies the use of force for the purpose of correction.
To avoid doubt, it is affirmed that the Police have the discretion not to prosecute complaints against a parent of a child or person in the place of a parent of a child in relation to an offence involving the use of force against a child, where the offence is considered to be so inconsequential that there is no public interest in proceeding with a prosecution.
This to me make sense we bring the kids up to be responsebell zitizens and they strive on it but The Government did change it in 2005 by the Green Party and now the parents get acused wrongly, stories been made up to get back at parents. Falls claims are been used by some kids, neighbours have doped neighbours in a really mess that could have been sorted before it got made into Law.Good on you Greenie the grass is not allways better on the other side at the fence.
