MISSION: Our members, individuals and organizations, believe children should be reared without being subjected to any form of corporal punishment (such as slapping, shaking, spanking, or hitting). Further, they should not be subjected to any form of emotional punishment, including shaming or demeaning. Any legal defense of these behaviors should be repealed to ensure that children have the same protection as adults under US laws.
- A larger membership of the National Alliance means more strength,
- Have greater access to research, education tools, model legislation, and
- Learn from other’s work and ideas.

Stay Informed About the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
All members of the UN have ratified this treaty with the exception of Somalia and the United States. Article 19 of the Convention protects children from all forms of violence.
Article 37 of the CRC requires states to ensure that “no child shall be subjected to torture or other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment”; article 19 requires states to protect children “from all forms of physical or mental violence”. The Committee on the Rights of the Child – the monitoring body for the CRC – has repeatedly emphasized that this includes the prohibition and elimination of corporal punishment in all settings, including the home, most comprehensively in General Comment No. 8 (2006) on “The right of the child to protection from corporal punishment and other cruel or degrading forms of punishment (articles 19, 28(2) and 37, inter alia)”.
