BBC reports that French Parliament has voted overwhelmingly in favour of a bill that would ban parents from smacking their children. The bill on "corporal punishment or humiliation" seeks to ensure that parental authority is exercised without violence. For the moment statistics show that 85% of French parents resort to corporal punishment. The bill will now be tabled by the Senate.
