New Zealand has voted on a referendum on their law against spanking. The verdict? Parents in New Zealand want the right to spank their children when they are in need of discipline. Scripture encourages parents to discipline their children for their own good. Spanking is not a form of violence towards children; it’s a blessing that, when done in love, teaches them difference between right and wrong.
