Woo-hoo, Seychelles! Children can never again be smacked there, not by parents, not by anyone – it’s against the law. This is the ninth African nation to prohibit. Such great news! The last bastion of domestic violence is that which we rationalize as ‘discipline’ – and it is directed at the most vulnerable of all human beings. Well, no more of this in 9 African nations, and counting. And what is the Global Countdown? That makes 60 countries now. With 28 more fully committed to reform. Every year, more.
Violence begins at home.
So does Peace.
