Evil can be used to frighten innocents. Mr Karle is an example of this in 'The Gathering'. Mr Karle tries to frighten the children into submission by enforcing the rules more than necessary. In real life this can happen between parents and their children as the parents think that they are just enforcing the rules, but the children think that the parents are being too demanding and might become withdrawn from their friends. Evil corrupts even the most respected and lawful men.
People often believe that bullies are individual sadists in society, who seek pleasure from other’s despair. Due to this common misconception, people fail to understand that an average citizen can become a bully based on the circumstantial factors in an atmosphere (Zimbardo, Lucifer). Various psychological experiments have proven that bullying occurs due to the presence of specific social factors in an environment. Anonymity is a primary social factor which promotes bullying, since it creates a lack of empathy in an atmosphere. The ignorance of authority figures is another social factor which causes bullying since it creates an acceptable environment for victimization.
So now we’ll talk about affairs and how people get revenge. In The Crucible, Mr. Proctor had an affair with a young lady. It made John look bad, so he started to ignore Abigail by telling her to leave and that he was mad at her. When she wouldn’t leave he pushed her away. For revenge she accused John’s wife, Liz, of being a witch.
The behaviors whether verbal or nonverbal, cause a child to be mentally manipulated or bullied into believing a loving parent is the cause of all their problems, or the enemy to be feared, hated, disrespected and avoided. Hostile parenting deprives children of their right to be loved by, and showing love for both of their parents. It is a severe form of child abuse, which puts the children in fear of their own parent. The child living in such an abusive environment is taught hatred, which will affect them for the rest of their lives. Hostile Parenting destroys a loving relationship between a parent and a child, in a way that affects the child in all aspects of their life.
For the reason that the child may realize that he or she is being mistreated and unloved when punished. It might seem that spanking children makes them afraid to repeat the aggression; nevertheless, it is more likely that they are afraid of the spanker. Psychologist Stephen Glenn states, “Spanking a child only causes resentment, sorrow and anger”. These particular feelings can lead children to have resentment towards their parents. As a parent it is much better to change a disciplinary method than have their children show remorse towards
Bullying does not just affect the victim, inadvertently; it affects everyone the victim is associated with too. Bullying should be seen as a crime because it ruins the targets chances at a normal and happy childhood, which everyone is rightfully entitled to, it destroys children’s and adolescents self-esteem, puts them into a depression, they may stop attending school which will in turn lower their grades, and it can even lead to self-harm and suicide. Usually children look forward to making friends at school and playing games with others, but if a child is bullied, they then become an outcast and slowly start reproaching socializing with society. The ones who have been bullied are usually the more subdued and quiet children. They probably do not speak in class or in a group and usually tend to avoid team sports and activities because they do not want to be chosen last.
The Empowerment of children in The Crucible During the late-seventeenth century, the witchcraft trials arose. Women, who have always been oppressed by social norms, and in this topic are, truthfully, merely children, took advantage of the situation. In Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, Abigail Williams and Mary Warren, who were once powerless, became empowered by deciding the fate of the people or, in the case of Abigail, by controlling and threatening people. In Salem, Massachusetts, children were strictly disciplined. Miller comments in his prose before the events begin to unfold how “…the children were anything but thankful for being permitted to walk straight, eyes slightly lowered, arms at the sides, until bidden to speak” (4).
Now before we start on why smacking is harmful, can I see a show of hands of people who have been smacked before? Also people who plan on smacking your children when you grow up and have kids yourself? So first of all, why do we smack your children? Is it because they are out of hand? Is it the only method of discipline that works?
But, unfortunately, such tries often end with nothing good and children suffer even more. On the whole, I think that such attempts are useless, as they will bring more harm than good both for parents and children. Kids have to be brought up in a loving and facilitating atmosphere that shows them how to live in this world and in what way to organize relationships with people. Thus, when living in the atmosphere of constant quarrels and offence, children can grow up to be too shy, or even aggressive. Looking back into my past, I think that I am completely satisfied with the state of events that were in my life.
Violent Media What causes kids to commit crimes and shoot other young kids? Many people can argue that media violence is the cause of those horrific crimes caused by young adolescences. Who are the people responsible letting children watch and play such violent games and movies. The parents play a big part in teaching their children, right from wrong, reality from make believe and responsibility. Watching violent media does show violent behavior in children but the problem is not just violent television but how much a child is expose to such violence that plays a big role on whether the child will show violent behavior.
