Spanking your child without telling your child what they did wrong or why they are being punished can leave a child feeling unloved and undeseable. Some parents have been known to torment their child for every little thing they have done wrong, instead of using spanking as a form of discipline. Parents that have not been properly taught by other parents before them on the proper way to spank, can spank their child too much and have a child becoming violent and non good person for the society. A spanking should be a last recur. A parent should first explain to their child what he/she did wrong.
Therefore In this essay I intend to put across both side of the arguments and then conclude with my own personnel opinion. Some people are against smacking children because the research evidence shown is overwhelming; smacking children is an ineffective way to manage children's behavior and damages their development. We have laws that protect adults from being assaulted by other adults however many people still believe that smacking children is a legal form of discipline. Is this therefore not ironic? As an adult can be protected by violence but a child does not have the same right.
They may become more aggressive and display a lot of self-destructive behaviour. Sexual abuse, normally a child is pressured into form of sexual activity such as penetration, oral sex forced to watch pornography. Neglect is when there is no provision made for the child’s safety and this can take place in the forms of; lack of food, clothes, shelter, education, medical care and health Describe the risks and possible consequences for children and young people using the internet, mobile phones and other technologies In the real world children and young people are vulnerable and may knowingly or unknowingly expose themselves to danger when
Should parents be allowed to spank their kids? A child should definitely be spanked of course by the parent or guardian because a firm spanking teaches one not to do something bad again. A simple pop across the wrists or on the hand could possibly save a child's life in certain situations. A pop on the wrists or a pop on the butt is something the child will more likely remember far more than such of a "stern talking to" or a time out. Eventually after a few spankings here and there the child will learn from right and wrong very quickly.
According to our text corporal punishment is the gratuitous intentional inflectional of pain on children’s bodies for the purpose of modifying behavior. When a child is being discipline it does not always have to be physical. Sometimes all it takes is for you to say their name, or speak firm to them. Some children have a history of being spanked for no reason so when they get out of the situation and get into a better one all it takes is for them to hear you raise your voice and they know. I also believe that taking things away from them is a great way of showing them that they must do what they are told.
If corporal punishment is so bad why did they allow it to continue for so many years? Are children that were punished affected from the punishment and now suffer untold damage as adults. We will answer these questions in this paper. Corporal punishment to some extent is needed to discipline a child in my opinion. Not so much so that they are physically or mentally hurt but a small swat on the rump to get their attention is necessary at times.
Can we really raise children to be moral if we discipline children immorally? The way we discipline our children determines the way they understand what they did wrong, how they will behave in the future and how they will discipline their own children. Unfortunately much of what we do in the name of discipline is immoral and causes more harm than good. This is why bullying has been becoming a more serious problem. In the book "Lost in Transition: The Dark Side of Emerging Adulthood" by Christian Smith, he sheds light on why bullying may be on the rise.
If spanking shows no effect on my kids then I may start to take away their electronics because that is what society is so centered around today. If my kids are anything like me they will discover other things to do if their “toys” are taken away from them but with the added pain from spanking, kids will realize that its just not worth it. So I do believe spanking is a very effective was of punishing your kids if done correctly. I can see where parents frown upon spanking children because it can be see as abusing your kids but only if done incorrectly. A couple hits with a dry switch that only stings on impact will do the same effect if not more of one than using your hand.
So, why would kids purposefully cut themselves? The most common reason is control of emotions, according to Lader. “For kids experiencing intense emotions, it can be used to deaden the intensity. For those feeling a sense of numbness, it serves the opposite effect, helping them feel something,” Lader says. Experts say for some adolescents, self-injury indicates other mental health concerns, such as depression.
* While smacking was the most feared form of punishment, it was the emotional distress and humiliation that can be caused by smacking, rather than any physical pain, which children feared. * Children felt that methods such as restricting access to television, toys and so forth were more effective than smacking as they were longer lasting, inconvenienced them more, and gave them time to reflect. * Smacking was often associated with parents being out of control, not setting a good example, and not supporting communication between parent and child. * Some children felt smacking sent a message which
