Child Abuse Laws

Child Abuse Laws

1 - What year did Sweden become the first country to ban physical punishment to children?

2 - What two countries have NOT ratified the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child?

3 - According to the article, what penalties can parents expect if they are found guilty of physical punishing their children in Sweden?

4 - Do you believe that "spanking" of young children is acceptable? Is there an age limit? Do you think a law comparable to the one in Sweden would work in the United States? Why or Why not?

  1. 1.the year that Sweden banned physical punishment to children was in 1979.
    2.The United States and Somalia are the only two countries that haven't ratified the U.N.'s convention on the rights the child.
    3. if the parent is found guilty of physical punishing their child swift action by the Swedish social services.
    4.i think it is okay long as you don't go over board and i think 13-14 is the time to stop beating your kids. because parents need to punish kids but not to badly.

    3 The penalties for a parent for physically punishing there child is that it would go too court as an assault charge.
    4. Yes it is ok at an appropriate age i think the age limit should be 12 too 17, no the U.S should have there own laws

    4.I believe that some kid need them more than others. the age you start spanking your child is 4-5 and it shouldn't go over 13-14.
