This morning I was on LBC Radio again talking to Andrew Castle about my opinion on smacking. In an interview with The Independentfollow, the Children’s Commissioner for England, Maggie Atkinson, has stated that smacking should be illegal and that it is wrong that pets currently have more rights than children. I have to agree with her, especially in view of the pets verses children point.
A couple of years ago I completed something called ‘The Freedom Programmefollow‘ to help me better understand what was considered a healthy relationship against an unhealthy one. One of the shocking statistics that has stayed to me until this day is that there are more animal refuges in this country than those who assist abused human beings. Don’t get me wrong, I understand that animals should be helped but what about the humans? It still astounds me that more people give to animal charities than they do to people ones. Yes, that is my opinion and I do understand that some may feel differently on this point.
