      90% of Kiwis know a sharp smack works instantly for safety or to correct bad behaviour and will not bruise or maime our precious babies.(words cut far deeper to the heart and damage our feelings so much more than a light smack so Sues Bill Bull and Saturday 21st November the majority WILL protest power to the people. PROTECT OR CORRECT only REASON TO SMACK. Bradfords Smack Attack already Cost Country Millions $$$ Sues minority PC Brigade insist Smacking is Bashing. Bradfords buddies shouted Child Basher at me during my 3 Prosmacking protests in Feilding then after my TV3 appearance with Simon Barnett and Christine Rankin i WAS phoned and emailed abuse. As Brian Tamaki said Enough is enough I gave up the fight for Parents Rights to Train up their Children in the Way they should go. Then ALONG COMES Bob, Familyfirst say MARCH just AS SUE will do TOMMORROW FROM PARLIAMENT – THERE REALLY IS A GOD.

      Dianne would GOD let you hit innocent babies? What about guidance instead of violence. Don’t you have better things to do with your time, like maybe picking up a parenting book?

      SAM I AM….I AM SURE THE JESUS I READ ABOUT IN THE BIBLE WOULD NEVER EVER HIT ANY CHILD EVER HOWEVER AS JESUS NEVER HAD HIS VERY OWN NATURAL CHILDREN JESUS HELPFULLY INSTRUCTS MUM DAD AND GRANDPARENTS HOW TO TRAIN UP THEIR CHILDREN IN THE WAY THEY SHOULD GO SO THAT ONCE OLDER THEY WILL NOT FORGET WHAT THEY HAVE LEARNED IN THEIR EARLY YEARS. CLOTHING FEEDING CUDDLING NURTURING PRAISING OUR BABIES PLUS READING A GOOD PARENTING BOOK CAN HELP WE CAREGIVERS HEAPS. DOCTOR JAMES DOBSON, NIGEL LATTA, IAN AND MARY GRANT GIVE SUCH PRACTICAL PARENTING TIPS WHILE WE ARE RAISING OUR LOVED AND CHERISHED BABIES WHO ALL HAVE SUCH DIVERSE PERSONALITIES BECAUSE SAM MANY TODDLERS NEVER EVEN REQUIRE A SMACK AFTER BEING WARNED OF THE CONSEQUENCE OFTEN JUST A VERY SAD LOOK FROM AN ADULT CAN CORRECT THEIR BAD BEHAVIOUR INSTANTLY.

      Dianne I am assuming from your response you are do not have a very indept understanding of child psychology? I think your opinion is probably based on deindividuation.

      If you are using these postive methods you have listed but still at times smacking your child, you are responding with anger and frustration, which is an undesirable behaviour from an adult. Children primarily learn by imitation, so our own behaviour must always be one of calm and self control. And the key fundamental is that unconditonal love does not constitute physical harm in any way ever in a relationship.

      I also disagree with your “sad look” tactic. Using guilt based fear and sulking by an adult will only be mirrored by your child in the future. Remember that we are the grown ups and need to set a fine example.

      And just because you use capital letters throughout your entire comment, it doesn’t make your point anymore valid. Your reasoning is still weak and you continue to contradict yourself by promoting positive parenting and then condoning harm towards children.

      Articles Garth George and Sue Reid wrote in the NZ Herald along with Mayor Michael Laws comments that since the passing of 2007 antismacking law 22 innocent little babies have died. Familyfirst are the voice for 9 out of 10 Kiwis who believe like me it is only a cruel uncontrolled violent monster that kills an innocent child it is never ever A LIGHT SMACK or TIME OUT but horrific anger gone mad that kills our darling children. A calm self controlled caregiver warns their will be a consequence should their childs unacceptable behaviour continue so an Adult grown up sets a fine example to their misbehaving child that the Child Has Rights to decide the consequence of their actions. Sam just let us focus on educating rotten parents not the majority of good parents who may occassionally use a light smack.

      I am astounded that the march advertises it is family friendly? What?
      It’s like the KKK inviting African Americans to their march.

      Zero tolerance I say. And how does it change societies view on children if so many still advocate hitting children instead of setting firm, consistent boundaries without the violence?
