Does it seem like progress on this issue is speeding up? Is it starting to seem weirder and weirder that people think it is OK to spank children? Just like people thought it was OK for husbands to smack their wives, not so long ago?
Nicaragua just banned the corporal punishment of children, the sixth South American nation (in the heart of the Catholic world!) and the 46th nation in the world to clean up its act. In historical terms this world is just minutes away from a global ban.
