COMMUNICATIONS NEWS: NSPCC study shows majority of parents smack their babies

The NSPCC has revealed research that says three-quarters of parents smack their babies in the first year of life and 46 per cent of recent parents do not feel they have enough support in times of stress.

The research was unveiled at a symposium in Edinburgh last week to communicate the telltale signs that reveal when a baby is at risk of abuse.

The Protecting Babies symposium, which was supported by Children First, the NSPCC's sister organisation in Scotland, was aimed at social workers, health professionals, the police and other voluntary groups.

Delegates received information on early-risk indicators and details on identifying and protecting vulnerable babies.
