Can you punish a child under the NAP? What do libertarians believe about corporal punishment? Children should be guided and nurtured, not subjected to violence, due to their developing mental and emotional capacities. As noted by Dakota Hensley on WeAreLibertarians.com, children are unique individuals who require the guidance of family and community, emphasizing a collective responsibility. They are not property but young individuals whose form of individualism is distinct from that of adults. When parents fall short in their roles, the community is responsible for stepping in, and prioritizing the child’s welfare and development, potentially through forming a voluntary Child Protective Service. This dual support system shapes the child’s worldview and interaction with their surroundings.
