Smacking ban shows Welsh Govt no longer trusts parents

Colin Hart and Simon Calvert reflect on the wider implications of the recent criminalisation of parents in Wales who use light, infrequent smacking to lovingly discipline their children.

Simon has also been speaking out in the media, telling LBC’s Andrew Castle the ban is “an injustice”, challenging ‘The Parenting Expert’ Sue Atkins on talkRADIO, after she likened smacking to child abuse, outlining the extent of the ban on GB News, and on BBC Radio, debunking the Welsh Government’s claims that parents would not be criminalised.
