Early 20th century French spanking literature is the first "golden age" of spanking fiction. It began in the early s, grew significantly in the s, reached its peak in the s and came to an end at the outbreak of World War II. Several things are notable and peculiar about this period. First, it was a very local, French, phenomenon that did not have counterparts in other countries — not in the UK , not in the Netherlands , and not in Germany either, although we may safely assume these countries must have had a great potential for the same kind of literature. By , the French book market had rebounded, but the genre of spanking literature was left behind. The after-effects of the war, indirectly, put an end to the kink -tolerant spirit that had once flourished in Paris.

On Dec. This section, which was added to the bill in July , makes corporal punishment a civil offense, so parents would not face criminal charges. But lawmakers and advocates believe it is an important symbolic change. Gilles Lazimi told the Telegraph.
The Ministry for Families, Childhood and Women's Rights has unveiled a new "Parents' Handbook" — a page booklet that will be sent to parents expecting their first child. The handbook — which was presented to the press by Minister Laurence Rossignol, and will be ready for distribution on April 11 — replaces the "Fatherhood Handbook. One of the book's five chapters — titled "Being a parent today" — advises future parents against spanking, a practice that is legal in France despite widespread condemnation. The booklet advises parents that "Hitting a child spanks, slaps, taps, brutality has no educational value," and that corporal punishment can "generate stress and affect [a child's] development. In a sub-chapter about the rights of children, the book's authors explain that infants are particularly vulnerable to such methods of parenting. Every year, nearly children in France suffer from so-called "shaken baby" syndrome, which can result in serious brain injury for infants. Shaking a baby is considered an "act of willful violence" by French law, and can be punished by up to 30 years in prison. Over the past few years, there has been a campaign to ban corporal punishment in France.
