Comment on Copping ‘mental and physical abuse’ on top of serving time: Dylan Voller’s evidence to the NT Royal Commission by evelyne roullet.

If I am to understand some commentaries, it comes to this: If my child spit on me I cannot physically punish him/her, but prison guards can do it even with brutality. They have excuses but parents have none.
If my children steal, I cannot spank them or restrain them…someone will do it for me when they will be in detention!!!
Is it really logic? Do we have to wait incarceration to discipline a naughty child ?

Copping ‘mental and physical abuse’ on top of serving time: Dylan Voller’s evidence to the NT Royal Commission
Ray, I am a grandmother and I have spanked my children more than once, but have you yet heard a grand child telling you about his rights?
At the time the child was only six years old and told me that the UN said that corporal punishment of children is a violation of their rights! When I ask him who said so he told me the school teacher, and he told me which article of the law.
I answered him that grandma does not care about the UN and if he misbehaves once more, I will spank him.
Later his mum told me that proudly, he said at school that he has a Nana who is not scared of the UN.
However as an educator, I know that corporal punishment has not been found to be an effective means of achieving positive long-term developmental outcomes, such as moral internalization or social problem-solving.
Corporal punishment threatens the physical well being of the child.
Once more physical harm is a repeated risk, particularly for young children, and the more often it is used the more likely it is to progress to severe forms of violence.
Corporal punishment has been found to be consistently related to poor mental health; including depression, unhappiness, anxiety, and feelings of hopelessness in children and youth.
Corporal punishment is a risk factor for relationship problems, including impairment of parent-child relationships, increased levels of aggression and anti-social behaviour in children, raised thresholds for defining an act as violent, and perpetration of violence as an adult, including abuse of one’s family members.

Gallery at Anzac consult: council hurries to meet govt deadline
It is important to respect, recognise and invest in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s cultures. They have told us repeatedly that it is central to their lives, and identified culture as a key factor in improving and maintaining wellbeing. It shapes Indigenous identity, linking people to their community and country, and importantly is a contributing factor to health and wellbeing.
However our government wants to built a so called cultural center which will be a contradiction to Aboriginal Culture.
Possible scenario: Anzac oval disappears (who gets the money?) everything is bulldozered but he gallery cannot be built because of the opposition of the legal custodians of the site.
Protocols for welcoming visitors to country have been a part of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures for thousands of years.
Despite the absence of fences or visible borders, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander groups had clear boundaries separating their country from that of other groups. Crossing into another group’s country required a request for permission to enter.
Another possible scenario: The gallery will be built but legal owners have the rights to tell visitors that they are not welcome.

Tourism, pubs, history and today’s Alice Springs
“The goal was to “create a contemporary hotel by enhancing everything that was historic.” The old Alice is gone so then it’s history.
The majority of attractions have become merchants, taking away trades from the Mall.
What we have left is the scenery.


Visions from the Centre to light up the Sydney Opera House
Beautiful, uplifting! Do we really need an art gallery in Alice? A cultural centre definitively yes, but we must hurry before someone steals it from us.


Flag on the Hill: When No became Yes
Scotty: The population of Arrernte people living on Arrernte land (including Alice Springs) is estimated at 25,000, making it the second largest of all Central Australian tribes. How many were sitting in front of Centrelink?
Pseudo Guru: One Country, One Law, One Flag?
Ok so which country? Which law? which flag?
May be Australia (at least the Northern territory) should copy New Caledonia.
It is a territory sui generis to which France has gradually transferred certain powers. New Caledonia was penal colony of the same period as Australia.
It is now governed by a 54-member Territorial Congress, a legislative body composed of members of three provincial assemblies. The French state is represented in the territory by a High Commissioner.
At a national level, New Caledonia is represented in the French parliament by two deputies and two senators.
