Smacking is the subject for the front cover of the Listener this week. http://www.listener.co.nz/issue/3463/7045.html
We’d like to suggest a strategy to kill a couple of birds with one stone.
Get a copy of the current Listener and read the articles. Write a letter to the Editor of the Listener, pointing out the many untruths in the articles. Section 59 is an excellent piece of legislation. When a child
is beaten to death that is the ultimate abuse, it is not a form of discipline. One of the logical conclusions from the articles is to ban all discipline of children….which in fact repeal of Section 59 will effectively accomplish.
http://www.FamilyIntegrity.org.nz has a lot of good information to help with writing letters to the Editor.
After writing the letter to the Editor then turn it into a letter to the MPs and send it to all MPs using this link: http://www.familyintegrity.org.nz/page/588413
