The results of the anti-smacking referendum are in. In answer to the question "Should a smack as part of good parental correction be a criminal offence in New Zealand?" 87.6% of voters said "no."
Vote No seem happy. We are too. Now it is time to sit back and see how the government responds. Nothing less than a law change to clarify what is and is not legal, with regard to smacking, will make me happy.
