This debate has started to rage again after a grandmother in NSW has had four children removed by the Department of Community Services after she smacked one young child. You can read articles relating to this story here and here .

If children start getting removed more frequently because of a smack, I wonder how the already overloaded child protection system will be likely to cope.
