Families First website

From the website:
"Families First is a family advocacy group, committed to supporting parents and children in the family unit. It supports the rights and responsibilities of parents to protect and guide their children and to bring them up in a reasonable manner, according to their religious and philosophical convictions."
They are against a "law against smacking". It is interesting that most of the families I know who share this view rarely need to smack their children and many never do. Families First have several papers looking at the situation in Sweden where the smacking ban has not only failed to achieve a decrease in violence against children but has been associated with the opposite outcome.
