There’s been a number of recent claims of kids around Perth running wild, and adults in the area are taking matters into their own hands.

6PR Breakfast asked a lawyer what our rights are when it comes to punishing other people’s kids.
Aaron McDonald from Pragma Legal told Michael Genovese and Carmen Braidwood it’s ok to tell a child off if they’re misbehaving.

“You can’t go into the area of smacks on the bum or anything like that,” he added.
