This can mainly be seen between a student and a teacher, another adult, or just a simple student with student. The same attitude that is being used toward parents is used against school officials. Schools should enforce more disciplinary action against these rude teens so as to make them pay for their lack of respect. As teenagers go about their daily lives, they observe others being rude to their friends and their parents, so they in turn do the same. The amount of peer pressure is increasing; therefore, it results in conforming to their peers’ expectations.
Parents and educators have established partnerships, in order to promote anti-bullying programs, because this is an issue that might cause victims psychological problems for a lifetime. Usually, teenagers who suffer this kind of abuse never tell to their parents, maybe for fear of what could happen or because they were threatened by the perpetrators. As a consequence, these teenagers suffer alone because they do not have someone with whom they might talk. Because bullying problems has become a more frequent issue each day, it has called people’s attention. Approximately Approx40% to 80% of the school-age children experience bullying during their academic career, but only 20% to 40% of bullied people report incidents.
Most children see smacking as any other kind of hitting and have negative feelings about their parents after being physically disciplined, according to a new report on the smacking of children. So should smacking be banned? Many children’s charities are against smacking children and have had many protests against it. One of the most famous is the NSPCC where there are many celebrity supporters such as Geri Halliwell, Carol Voderman, the Beckhams, Lulu and Elizabeth Hurley. They believe that smacking does not work and just hurts the child both mentally and physically.
Should Parents be banned from smacking their children? Good morning ladies and gentlemen. Most of you already know my name and what I’m here for. But in case you didn’t, my name is Mehdi and I’m here to talk about a major issue in our society today, that being the issue of parents smacking their children. Smacking can be defined as “to strike someone, usually with the palm of the hand as a punishment.” Going back twenty to forty years, smacking wasn’t even an issue, with over 90% of people smacking their children.
Bullying and Strict Disciplinary Actions Have you ever been bullied? More importantly, have you ever been the bully? Over 54,000 children ranging from the ages of 5 – 18 get bullied every day. However, there are some disagreements on the disciplinary actions that should be taken. Despite the disagreements, strict disciplinary actions need to be enforced in schools to avoid bullying; because, it disrupts the learning environment, causes future disadvantages, and makes the victims become emotionally unstable.
In younger children bullying can include exclusion (for ex: a child telling a child she doesn’t want to play with them and urging others to join her in excluding the victim of the bullying behavior) (Lee, par2, n.d). In this essay, I will attempt to explain to you the effects that bullying can cause in Early Childhood Education Systems. When you think of bully, the picture of a villain may pop into your mind, when this is not always the case. In the world we live in a bully can be anyone, a male or female, small or large, young or old. Bullying has no social, financial, or cultural boundaries (Oakland Tribune, 2006).
The taunted person may even be told that they are not allowed to hang out with the other members of the group anymore because they will not follow the group in the things they do. The reasons boys and girls bully are similar. “Girls tend to get picked on if they wear glasses or braces or if they are too skinny or too fat” (Fanning). Over the years, “Boys have picked up on our culture’s ideas of what they are supposed to be. They bully each other about being a ‘wuss’ or not being strong enough” (Fanning).
Growing up, I do not remember getting too many spankings, but, I can still here the crack my Dad would give my younger brother and sister. I felt so bad for them, especially if he left a mark. I would want to go console them as soon as he left, but was forbidden to do so. In 2009, a Duke University study published in Child Development concluded that spanking has detrimental effects on the behavior and mental development of children. The researchers found children who were spanked as 1-year-olds tended to behave more aggressively at age 2, and didn’t perform as well as other children on a test measuring thinking skills at age 3.
There is no known fact to answer this question because there have been many kids that have been abused physically, mentally, and sexually by his or her parents but they did not grow up to be serial killers. According to Joel Norris, he states that, “Parents who abuse their children, physically as well as psychology instill in them an almost instinctive reliance upon violence as a first resort to any challenge.” (Norris, 1989) In some cases parents believe that if they discipline their children it will make them tougher when they grow up. Often sometimes children don’t see that when they are being disciplined it makes a child start to lack love for their parents and it makes the child go out and do things like setting fires, misbehaving in school and the need to torture animals to release the anger they have built up inside of them from the hurt that their parents have called all because they wanted to discipline their child (Norris, 1989). When a child torture or kill an animal does that automatically mean that the child will grow up to become a serial killer? Or is it the only way a child can release all the hatred and angry that they are suppressing from being abused by their parents?
The behavior by bullies then is virtually encouraged as students become afraid or feel that the administration will not react appropriately should they inform them of a bulling situation. Students at this age will make mistakes and react inappropriately occasionally in response to a bullying situation if they feel there is no help from the school. Clearly each incident needs to be investigated and any punishment should be appropriate based on the circumstances involved. It is clear the principles only goal in dealing with behavior issues in the school is to indentify, isolate, intimidate, and remove. This simply will not work if no effort is made to correctly indentify were and with who the problem started.
