2000 years ago, the Roman scholar Quintilian said this about punishing children by hitting them:
"...When children are beaten, pain or fear frequently have the result of which it is not pleasant to speak and which are likely subsequently to be a source of shame, shame which unnerves and depresses the mind and leads the child to shun the light of day and loathe the light... I will spend no longer time on this matter. We know enough about it already..."
Modern-day experts, using slightly different language, say exactly the same thing. Finally, the truth about what happens to children when they are mistreated by their caretakers is becoming part of mainstream thinking. It's been a long, slow, hard trudge, but the goal is within reach. Children will be protected!
