Incredible that the outdoor Mass was able to continue under those weather conditions.

Pope Francis says it is OK to smack children if their ‘dignity is maintained’ | World news | The Guardian

This has also created strong reactions in Norway.

The Ombudsman for children sent a letter monday to Bernt Eidsvig, the catholic bishop of Oslo / Norway. In the letter, she requested a clarification of Eidsvig stance to violence against children. In a statement to NRK the bishop said ''one should not hit children'' and that he supports Norwegian law.

It's a controversial subject, but I tend to agree with Bishop Eidsvig on the matter.

On a different matter, here is article from the BBC I saw today - not the greatest piece of journalism, but quite interesting nonetheless:

I agree with the Pope. Children need discipline. Otherwise they can do what they want, right or wrong, and know they can get away with it. Even Dr. Spock apologized after he realized he was responsible for the first of many generations of brats after mothers used his guide to raising children. He frankly admitted he was wrong.

You are right, children do need discipline, but there are tons of ways to discipline a child without ever resorting to hitting. Its odd how we call it abuse when people hit their partner but when parents hit their children, who cant defend themselves, its perfectly fine.

I think the most important thing in raising a child is sticking to your guns and dont do what far too many people do; not following up on what they say will happen. If you promise a child an ice-cream, give it. If you say a certain type of behavior leads whatever punishment, do it.

Pranter 02-10-2015 03:07 PM

Hitting someone in anger is not the same thing as discipline. Spanking is not beating.

There is a difference.

I do think children should be punished when they've done something wrong, as if they're not, they will become spoilt, and also if they've always had their own way, when they're older they might not know how to handle a situation that doesn't go their way, as they've never been in that position before. But, I think punishments should be handled in a gentler way than hitting or smacking.

The most common punishment for children over here (or at least amongst the parents I know) seems to be to take one of their favourite toys or other favourite possession until they can learn that what they did or said was wrong.

Yes, children needs discipline, but you shall never smack / hit them. You shall never smack / hit anyone. I lose more and more respect for this Pope.
