Unicef declares NZ anti-smacking law a success

Despite all the politically-driven, hidden-agenda hype and misinformation, the facts are:

1. The NZ anti-smacking law has reduced hospital admissions for children

2. It has increased the level of reporting of abuse (note how better reporting can be twisted by vested interests to make it sound like ‘things got worse’)

3. Begun to bring about a positive shift in culturally held attitudes towards children
