Firstly, it violates the privacy of the student. Secondly, it violates the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Lastly, unwarranted searches like these break the valuable bond between student and searcher. There are locations in Canada that allow search and seizure, but this is not the correct thing to do. Only for certain reasons can the teachers search a student.
This parenting style does not take the childs needs or wishes into consideration. The parent believes there is no need to explain any rules or why to the child. This type of parenting makes the child known to be unhappy or withdrawn. According to Bukatko (2008), the coercive techniques for controlling behavior, is associated with less advanced moral reasoning and less prosocial behaviors, lower self-esteem, and poorer adjustment when starting school. The coercive techniques are associated with higher levels of aggression and poor peer relations (p. 345) Permissive parents offer less warmth to the child and little parental control.
However, this innocence means that children are seen as vulnerable and in need of protection from dangers of the adult world and so they must be kept quarantined and separated from it. As a result, children’s lives are lived largely in the sphere of the family and education, where adults provide for them from and protect them from the outside world. Similarly, unlike adults, they lead lives of leisure and play and are largely excluded from paid work. There are many cross-cultural differences in childhood. Anthropologist Ruth Benedict argues that children from more simpler and non-industrial societies are generally treated differently from there modern western
Spanking is Not an Effective Form of Discipline Com/156 August 21st, 2010 Jill Hughes Spanking is Not an Effective Form of Discipline There are many forms of discipline out there, and there are many opinions on these things. Even though Spanking is not an effective form of discipline seen by some people, there are other forms of discipline, because there is a difference between beating and spanking a child and time outs, toy removals, and canceled allowances can work instead. A little spanking does not hurt anything, but the other discipline options should be used first before any physical disciplines take affect. There are differences between beating and spanking a child. Beating is defined as whipping or thrashing in punishment or an act of repeated hitting or striking (Farlex, 2010).
Many people fear that these theories will make excuses for criminal acts and divorce. The nurture side of the argument has best been supported by studies of infant and child temperaments. John Watson showed how he could create a phobia in a young child with the Baby Alfred experiments and new studies are showing that a sense of humor is influenced by the environment rather than pre-determined by genes. To this day, one can be put at ease because genes may provide a template of who one becomes but cannot determine everything (Powell, 2009). Although both biology and the environment affect one’s behavior, the role the environment plays is more significant due to the lack of biological make-up in humans.
The question really is why the parents would be held responsible for the crimes or actions of their children. People who disagree with me will say that since the parents are responsible for the child that they are responsible for the child’s actions. What I say to that is, parents should not be held responsible for their children’s actions and/or crimes because the parents cannot control every decision of their minor children. A parent can teach a child to do the right thing but that does not mean the child will always do the right thing. A parent cannot control everything that their child does.
Spanking is wrong Spanking is one of the most common forms of discipline used by parents. Although the very same parents do not condone hitting people, they believe spanking is a quick and effective technique for correcting unwanted behavior (Ramsburg 1). Ironically, by using violent and hurtful means of discipline, parents are instilling negative values in their children. The moral consequences of spanking children can have lifelong negative effects. For young children, parents are their primary role models.
People who abuse their children will not stop just because it is illegal(1, Selwyn Duke , The New American). Studies show that if a teen is still being spanked, he is more likely to get into fights and become violent. Research also shows that teens who are still receiving physical punishment do worse in school than their peers(2, Daniel Martin, Mail Online). There are positive effects of spanking your children if you do it the right way. Studies show that children who are spanked between the ages of two and six performed better at school.
Failure to follow the rules usually results in punishment. The parent is highly demanding and directive but are not responsive to the child not encourage give and take. (Gurian, Wagner) Authoritative or moderate parenting style is described by parents that set limits and rely on natural consequences for the child to learn from making mistakes. The authoritative parent establishes rules and guidelines that the child is expected to follow but are responsive to their child. This is a more democratic approach in the use of supportive rather than punitive disciplinary methods.
Although it is tempting to think that education in a democratic society should be free, autonomous and unrestricted, a censorship on education of children and teenagers is not only appropriate but also necessary, especially when porn and violence are concerned. Research suggests that children and teenagers are much more impressionable than adult for they have not form their own outlook of the world and the value. Parents and teachers should do some necessary suppression and censoring to keep them away from harmful materials before they
