The minister needs a spanking!
"Discipline never harmed any of our great great grandparents, parents or even us!"
Readers respond to Ban the Smack! by Scott Dunlop.

Clearly the minister needs a spanking! Perhaps a couple of whips and chains too!

She must stick her nose in her business and perhaps if young school girls weren't being paid social grants, there would be less pregnancies and less children facing abuse due to parents not being emotional/physically ready for kids.

Kids require discipline, there is a line between abuse and discipline, and I won't have my child tell me what will and won't be done. I am responsible for his/her future and I won't raise a an abuser/murder/criminal because I allowed them to get away with the wrong actions by not disciplining them.

Our country is being ruled by criminals, they should be beaten to death to teach them, THY shall NOT steal! THY shall NOT commit MURDER! The minister should perhaps focus on disciplining these cowards that rule the country and murder innocent woman, men and children!

Did she study psychology to decide parents who discipline their children turn into monsters and beat them to death?

Clearly, children who spanking doesn't work with are your ADD/ADHD types, but parents still require treatment and therapy, the next will be banning medications because it will be seen as abuse.

I personally feel the minister should focus on young mothers who DUMP there new born babies in toilets, long drops, drains and even in dustbins as SERIOUS problem! These young girls are committing a BIGGER crime, some are so young that sex is a crime at their age and then the innocent baby is abandoned and left to die! The mother is a KILLER!

She can focus on young children being sold for sex trade, SA is now hot in the seat with children abduction and trafficking for the sex trade and all she can focus on is a hiding with a flat hand on the bottom!

Discipline never harmed any of our great great grandparents, parents or even us!
