The Independent Culture
Sir: Smacking children in anger or frustration is something we do because they can be infuriating and embarrassing beyond the capacity of any adult, because we are responsible for them and because they are smaller than us - understandable on the Clinton scale of human frailty, but assault nonetheless. Systematic corporal punishment in cold blood is a sinister practice.
