Wales ban spanking children

 It's illegal to spank children in Wales

It's illegal to spank children in Wales. Now anyone who spanks a child in care can be arrested and prosecuted for the attack, according to the BBC.

Welsh First Minister Mark Drayford said it was a “historic” day for children, because Wales became the second country within the UK to introduce such a ban. Children were previously banned from spanking in Scotland.

It is noted that the law also has critics who believe that the new law was “pushed through by those who think they know better than parents.”
