Petition statement

It is not okay to physically assault a child in the name of discipline. It is impossible that God would sanction beating a child into submission. We don't serve a weak God. There needs to be a move away from taking scriptural content out of its ancient cultural context.

Corporal punishment/Spanking is VIOLENCE and ought not to be meted on children. The use of positive discipline where logical consequences are applied to any infraction is what is being suggested.

Let us also seek to understand the stages of child development and in so doing, we won't be punishing children for what they're supposed to be doing, but instead, gently guide their learning.

Sincerely,

The undersigned
