The Child Act

Have you been caned as a child or do you caned your children to discipline them? Five months after the media commotion over the legality of child caning in Malaysia, we revisit that subject with Sharmila Sekaran, lawyer and chair of Voice of the Children, by examining the 15-year-old Child Act and what it says about parental neglect, what constitute child abuse, as well as whether the entrenched place of the cane in society can be legislated away.
