Three Kiwi high school students explain why they supporting voting YES in the Citizens Initiated Refereundum: “Should a smack as part of good parental correction be a criminal offence in NZ.” Also includes comment from UNICEF NZ Executive Director Dennis McKinlay.

It’s about sending a message to the next generation of families … that it’s not OK to hit children.

It’s less about a law change than it is about an attitude change.

Adults have a huge responsibility to stand up for us in this situation.

The rights of children have been largely overlooked … the referendum is about childrens rights.
