What is SpankOut Day, USA April 30th?
"Raising Responsible (Good) Kids Without Hitting"
SpankOut Day USA was initiated in 1998 to give widespread attention to the need to end corporal punishment of children and to promote non-violent ways of teaching children appropriate behavior. EPOCH-USA (End Physical Punishment of Children) sponsors SpankOut Day USA on April 30th of each year. All parents, guardians, and caregivers are encouraged to refrain from hitting children on this day, and to seek alternative methods of discipline through programs available in community agencies, churches and schools. EPOCH-USA collaborates with the Center for Effective Discipline of Gundersen National Child Protection Training Center to support events and programs for parents and caregivers on positive discipline/no spanking for SpankOut Day April 30th through the SpankOut Day USA mini-grant program.
