Pope says it is 'OK to smack children'

Pope says it is 'OK to smack children' | Sociology | Scoop.it
Pope Francis has said it is OK to smack children - as long as their dignity is maintained.

He made the remark during his weekly general audience which was devoted to the role of fathers in the family.

Outlining the traits of a good father he said it is one who is able to forgives but is able to "correct with firmness" while not discouraging the child.

Francis said: "One time, I heard a father in a meeting with married couples say 'I sometimes have to smack my children a bit, but never in the face so as to not humiliate them'. He has to punish them but does it justly and moves on."

The Rev Thomas Rosica, who works with the Vatican press office, said the pope was obviously not speaking about committing violence or cruelty against a child but rather about "helping someone to grow and mature".

He said: "Who has not disciplined their child or been disciplined by parents when we are growing up?

"Simply watch Pope Francis when he is with children and let the images and gestures speak for themselves."
