April 30th is the International Day to End Corporal Punishment.
Many in Canada are advocating for the Government of Canada to Repeal section 43 of the Criminal Code which allows adult caregivers of children aged 2 - 12 years to exert physical punishment on children as a form of discipline.
Those of us who understand neuroscience, attachment theory, child development, and ACEs understand the damage such breaches of trust between adults and children cause.
We call upon all Canadians to join the movement to end corporal punishment in Canada.
