Canadians in violation of UN rules
    #1990438 - 10/08/03 04:54 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

I found this on James Taranto's "Best of the Web Today" blog --

The Moral Authority of the United Nations

"The UN has told the Canadian government to ban all forms of corporal punishment of youngsters--including even a light slap," reports the CanWest News Service. The Committee on Rights of the Child said Canada, as a signatory to the Convention on the Rights of the Child, is obliged to make spanking illegal. So if you're a Canadian parent and you want to discipline your children without running afoul of the U.N., you may soon have to hire a Palestinian to blow him up.

Some interesting points raised in the entire article.

See? I knew that putting Lybia in charge of the Human Rights committee would bring results.

Sheez. Something they should understand about the human butt: it's a thick muscle away from organs, with plenty of little nerves up in the skin--the perfect disciplinary apparatus.

I'm on the fence about the issue, I certainly will not hit my kids. But charging somebody with a crime seems extreme if it is mild hitting.

"When a child is young and cannot understand, a tap on the hand is essential for training. We have a wood-burning stove that gets very hot. It's ridiculous that I can't save my child from burning himself by tapping his hand away from it."

This to me is stupid, if you have a wood burning stove folks; don't rely on tapping hands or slapping butts to stop your kid from touching it. They shouldn't be ABLE to touch hot stoves(you're irresponsible if your child who can barely speak can access a wood burning stove).People who hit their kids should ask themselves " did I hit the dog during training?" if yes then you not only are a shitty dog trainer but have a kid more stupid than a mangey mutt.
