Poland is the 22nd European state to achieve prohibition of all corporal punishment in Children
On 1 August, a new law came into force in Poland prohibiting corporal punishment of children in all settings, including in the home. Article 2 of the Law of 6 May 2010 “On the Prevention of Family Violence” amends the Family Code (1964) by inserting a new article 96 which prohibits all corporal punishment in childrearing: “Persons exercising parental care, care or alternative care over a minor are forbidden to use corporal punishment, inflict psychological suffering and use any other forms of child humiliation”.
