As long as you don't leave a mark.

It's assault to hit another adult.

Children are basically defenceless.

Adults at least usually have some ability to defend themselves.

So why is it legal to hit your kids but not another adult?

How is this the law?

I just feel like a parent could beat their kid the day before they turn 18.
But the next day, they can't because it's assault.

Law does not equal justice.

Welcome to the world.

In my state TEACHERS are still allowed to hit children.

This is one of the reasons why I am such an advocate for children. They are the most abused demographic of people in the entire world. Sexually, physically, mentally. And they literally cannot do anything, don't know better, and laws even protect some abusers.

You know what I was just thinking about? How hitting to teach a lesson has to be the most absolute laziest possible way to parent. (Aside from doing nothing at all).

It takes such strength and patience to teach lessons through other means. Means that aren't just a brute reaction to anger.

My mum didn't smack, so I didn't smack.

I found it fairly easy not to smack until he was a teenager, then I wanted to back over him in the car.

Those laws actually apply to minors and "incompetent people", teachers are also allowed to use "reasonable physical force"
So i guess you could hit another adult if they were incompetent or you were their teacher?

In our primary school there was a nun who used an improvised knuckle duster on 9 year old childrem. Luckily she left before I got to that class.

I can just imagine how much the kids would want to come to school if teachers hit here.

"So why is it legal to hit your kids but not another adult? "

Because children are monsters?

Maybe that's the law on the books in Canada but you would 100 percent be fired you hit a kid here. You can get in serious trouble for restraining and removing a child without proper training and verification.

That's how it is here too, but I'm just saying, it's not against the law for teachers and parents to hit children.

Not since 2004. The Supreme Court banned all form of corporal punishment in schools.
The old 123 years old law still apply at home because the Conservative killed all recent attempts at changing the law.

This is where I got that from. It didn't specifically say that teachers were excluded. Or at least I must have missed it. It says they tried to repeal in 2004 but weren't successful completely.

I see. It’s an op-ed with an agenda. (A good one).
The Supreme Court upheld the law of corporal punishment at home, but said it has no place in schools.

Also, several provincial jurisdictions completely banned any form if corporal punishment.

One of ours used the catechism... Used to slam it on your head if you weren't paying attention... Its a great use for a religious book..

I had a teacher that would walk up and down the aisles spraying an aerosolized ammonia gas until everyone stopped talking.

Not sure if that counts as physical abuse, but it sure did suck.

I'd say it's physical abuse. That's poison.

what, omg!

in canada (bc), a parent can use an open hand on a clothed bottom, no other place is allowed. there's probably more to it, but teachers are mandated reporters of any abuse, so it would be pretty effed up if we were allowed to hit kids.
