London, June 1 (IANS) Singer Peter Andre, father-of-three, has claimed he ‘doesn’t see anything wrong’ with smacking children.
Andre has weighed into the debate over whether parents should be allowed to smack their children, reports mirror.co.uk.
The topic has become a talking point since a panel of experts suggested physical punishment should be made illegal in Britain.
“As a child, I got smacked when I did something wrong and it never did my brothers or I any harm,” Andre – father to Junior, 10, Princess, 8 and Amelia, 2 – wrote in his column for new! magazine.
He added: “Of course no parent should physically harm their child, but I don’t see anything wrong with a smack on the hand or the bum to discipline them.
“That said I’ve never ever smacked my kids.”
