FLOGGING CHILDREN is an option for parents when it comes to ensuring discipline in the home and dealing with wayward youth.

“We have a lot of people who have raised some wonderful children who have gone on to enjoy successful careers and lives. The parents have never used corporal punishment,” insisted the Archbishop.
