I think that it's necessary to change public opinion first. I know groups of Christians who are spreading the word that corporal punishment is not endorsed in the original languages of scripture. I know that the vast majority of people I know believe that not hitting your children leads to delinquency, despite reams of evidence to the contrary. I think it's necessary to shed light on the truth, because eventually people start listening, talking and changing.
There's still a long way to go, but I think as public opinions change, so will society, for better or worse. I think that if most Christians realize that the Bible doesn't command them to hit their kids, they would wholeheartedly stop. I think that if people really listen to the damage they're causing by hitting their children, they would want to know their options.

Sorry if I rambled, I'm a bit short on sleep.
