Re: Sinead or ?

I think one of the interesting aspects of the SMU conference might be the participation of the representative from Save the Children Sweden. Like Vachss' organization PROTECT, the US branch of Save the Children takes no position on corporal punishment at all so far as I can tell, no explanation offe...

Re: Sinead or ?

The school thing is particularly stupid because where it exists, beaters have complete immunity. Short of killing or practically killing someone, no government or law enforcement agency will get involved. Schoolteachers in these situations have a god-like status that not even parents 'enjoy'. For th...

Re: Sinead or ?

Sorry. Hope things go okay there. Few notes: Apparently this is Child Abuse Prevention month in the US. I had no idea. Locally, a couple days ago there was a rally (which I found out about after the fact) at the courthouse with pinwheels, mayors issuing proclamations, etc. The little girl beaten to ...

Re: Note to Americans

Bernard, Let's make the point about legislation mine then. A couple months ago I had the chance to get into a conversation with a therapist who's worked pretty much exclusively in state forensic hospitals. "Alice who ?" she said. She hadn't heard of Jonathan Pincus either. I'd say she was more than ...

Re: Note to Americans

sf, You're right. And this is just about schools. A relative minority of them at that. Tip of the iceberg. Even most parents who insist on retaining the "right" to beat at least their own kids oppose school corporal punishment, but what we have is no action and deafening silence. I agree with what I...

Re: Note to Americans

Bernard, I hope I'd be the last person to dismiss or unduly criticize anyone with a feminist bent. It seems clear that at least on average that movement has been heading in the right direction. I believe womens' rights has been a (maybe "the") crucial factor in finding ourselves where we are. My obs...
