Abstract (English)

This article addresses the debate on fuzzy cases concerning the so called ‘mild and sporadic instances of physical violence against children by caregivers. The end of violence toward children is a current goal in the international scenario. However, myths on the use of violence and the scope of parental rights still survive. Thus, I examine the main theoretical, ethical and political challenges regarding conceptual clear-cut boun- daries and the burden of proof when justifying violence. Finally, I defend the role of a preventive approach on childrens wellbeing and family intervention as a fruitful way to surpass polarized debates on permi- ssibility and criminalization.
