UPDATE – Don’t get mad – get even….even more signatures!

Hi Barbara,

UPDATE – Don’t get mad – get even..

even more signatures!

Petition 1. “Should a smack as part of good parental correction be a criminal offence in NZ”
Due date for required signatures June 29th
How many more signatures are needed –  only 15,000
Reason? – because of the potential invalidating of signatures, we would like to submit 20,000 more signatures than are needed – to avoid any doubt!!!

Petition 2. “Should the government give urgent priority to understanding and addressing the wider causes of family breakdown, family violence and child abuse in NZ”
Although this petition has now expired (and is currently being counted), it is still worth asking people to sign the 2nd petition while they sign the first petition. The number of signatures gained is a statement in itself.


Thanks for your efforts on this. We have also commissioned Research on attitudes towards the anti-smacking law one year on from when it passed. Initial results make VERY interesting reading. More details to come next week.

Kind regards

Bob McCoskrie
National Director
