A New Zealand Christian "Guide to Smacking". Somehow, I think I got the quotes in the wrong place let me try that again. A New Zealand "Christian" "Guide to Smacking." There, that's better.
American "Christian" childbeaters have been forced by pesky PC conventions and nosy relatives to refer to it as "chastening," [and to PVC plumber's pipe and other recommended thrashing mechanisms as "chastening instruments."] Nice to see our Kiwi counterparts aren't similarly cowed.
Grounding, giving children 'time out', making them stand in the corner... does not deal with the 'problem of sin in the heart.'
If the child is angry after the smack, you have not smacked hard enough.
One thing they do agree on, though: Godless, beating-less Sweden is going to hell.
