All children were punished when one of them broke the rules

What happened?

When one boy was caught smoking in a children’s home, the whole group was punished. For example, the television was taken away from the public area.

 

What did the Ombudsman do?

The Ombudsman reprimanded the children’s home because punishing the children in this way was wrong and against the law.

Others should not be punished for the misbehaviour of one person.

The whole group may not be punished because one of its members has broken the rules.
