"How refreshing to see this topic thoughtfully discussed from the child’s point of view. Using the voices of children, parents and professionals Bernadette Saunders and Chris Goddard demonstrate that children have a right to live in environments where they are loved, nurtured and valued rather than in an environment where their development is overshadowed by the fear of physical punishment. An important book."
Kim Oates, MD DSc, FRCP FRACP, Emeritus Professor, University of Sydney

"This is an excellent comprehensive account, not only of the issues relating to physical punishment, but of the views and feelings of parents and children about it. It should be compulsory reading for those who are concerned with overcoming this problem because of the insights it gives into the motivation of parents and others who continue to use physical punishment of children. Importantly it stresses the need for education and support and confirms my view that any legal solution should be seen as part of that education process."
