Thousands of young people are abused by their parents a year. According to American Humane:
Children Die Every Day From Abuse or Neglect. In 2005, an estimated 1,460 children died as a result of abuse or neglect (USDHHS, 2007). The majority almost 76.6 percent of these children were 3 years of age or younger. Most child fatalities (76.6 percent) happened at the hands of parents (USDHHS, 2007).
Isn't that tragic? As your candidate, I will advocate for a ban on corporal punishment at initial ages of childhood and advanced ages of childhood, and eventually a permanent all age ban. Let me tell you why. For so long, children has been treated as human property. The command/obey dynamic is law in this country, and family behavior. This isn't anything new. Too many young people are being hurt by their parents, with over three quarters of child abuse deaths being committed by parents (76.6%), and 76.6% of the child fatalities occuring on children 3 years of age and younger. What has gotten to anerica? This antiyouth country has to be fixed, therefore, I officially endorse banning corporal punishment in the United States and it's territories. Stand by me.
