Mon Dieu, quelle bonheur! France just became the 52nd country to ban all corporal punishment of children, at home or at school. Only 4 countries left till all of Europe is a smacking-free zone. Well, in Italy it is already banned by their Supreme court, just not formalized into law yet. That leaves just Switzerland, the Czech Republic and….UK.
The new normal: treating children as persons. This will have very positive flow-on effects on all society.
