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.

Air race re-enactment government’s latest financial folly
Gunner is the reincarnation of Nero, “fiddling while Rome is burning”.
Gunner is becoming decadent and unpopular like Nero. Gunner is an ineffectual leader in a time of crisis.
Fiddling, after all, can also mean that a person is expending energy or and money on something useless or misguided.
Gunner = Nero.

GST billions yet we’re still the basket case
I agree with you Janet, bandaids government not only is all wrong, but it underlines the paternalistic colonialist ideas.
This mentality characterises the restriction of the freedom and responsibilities of subordinates or dependants in their supposed interest.

Fiscal emergency: Get rid of Ministers, says Opposition
How to we get a round ball to fit into a square hole? It is feasible and mathematically the round ball in a square hole fits easier and better that a cube in a round hole. The question is who is or are the round hole, the round ball, the square hole, the cube?
We have unusual individualists (by our standards) who could or would not fit into a niche or category with our majority.
May be we have to get outside the square we are in and see reality from a new perspective.
