This is a remarkable book, bringing together a variety of experts to provide updated information about violence against children and potential solutions. Physical punishment, bullying, and childhood poverty and homelessness are only a few of the topics covered in depth.
Joan Durrant (“The global movement to end all corporal punishment of children”) and George Holden (with Rose Ashraf) (“The problem of corporal punishment and the solution of positive parenting in the United States”) contribute their usual brilliant work on physical punishment and its solutions.
