Slovak children exposed to violence

NEARLY two thirds of Slovak children have witnessed aggressive or violent behaviour by adults, a new survey showed.

According to a survey carried out by the Focus agency for the Bratislava based International Center for Family Studies, nearly 70 percent of Slovaks think it is natural to smack children on their bottoms when parents consider it necessary.

More than 50 percent of the survey's respondents also agreed with measures such as banning a child from watching TV or playing computer games when parents think the child has been naughty.
