Get involved

Close to 300 million children aged 2 to 4 worldwide experience violent discipline by their caregivers on a regular basis and only 10% are protected from this violence in law. There is no evidence this has any positive behavioural implications but there is evidence that this creates a culture of violence that follows into adulthood with violent punishment being linked to poorer mental health, cognitive development and educational outcomes, and increased aggression and anti-social behaviour.
