Scotland: emotional abuse

Legislation to ‘criminalise emotional abuse’ of children is set to be introduced in Scotland, despite concerns about a previous attempt to bring in a similar law in England and Wales, it was reported in early March.

Such a law could see parents criminalised for raising children according to their religious beliefs. Parents and other concerned citizens will be given an opportunity to share their views in a consultation on the ‘scope and nature’ of the law later in the year.
