As a trainee teacher, I was horrified to learn that smacking/hitting a child is legal in the UK as long as a mark is not left on their body. To me this is utterly abhorrent and no one should have a legal right to abuse a child in this way. No one should have the right to use physical violence against a child in their care or otherwise for any reason. Please sign my petition to make the physical act of hitting a child illegal in the UK.
