- Hungary Around the Clock
The aim of the initiative, writes Unicef Hungary, is to draw attention to the fact that the protection of children is a shared responsibility of society.
A survey on the topic conducted by the Publicus Institute found that the vast majority of Hungarians, about 83%, do not consider it acceptable for a parent to use physical punishment when raising a child.
At the same time, 14% find this acceptable, and 38% of respondents say that one slap occasionally will not harm the child.
The same number agree that children primarily have responsibilities, not rights.
The majority of participants, 66%, believe that a parent has the right to check their child’s phone and personal messages.
