Therefore, according to the latest studies of some organizations such as children protection, spanking can create physiological problems such as depression in a child. It makes parents believe that spanking children can harm their children. Spanking children is not a good way to discipline them because children can get some mental problems. For example, children who are usually spanked by their parents believe that they hate them, so children get depression because of spanking. Children can also get mental problems because of spanking such as killing themselves.
The reason that spanking confuses them is simply this; parents are the example of the difference between right and wrong and all spanking is doing is telling the child is that every time somebody does something wrong they should be smacked for the mistake they made. Secondly, spanking simply installs a sense of "fear and resentment" towards the parent. The only result that comes from making a child fear the parent is just reverse what is trying to be accomplished; discipline. On top of fearing the parent, the child will also lose respect for their parent and make the relationship between parent and child become very weak. Discipline will not work if parents do not have a good relationship with their child This highlights how spanking a child will weaken the respect that is needed between child and parent.
Due to her domineering presence this meant that any chance that child A’s mother had of being able to fulfil her role as the primary carer was undermined and must have caused great stress and tension within the family unit. This is picked up on by the child who will often display negative behaviour just before a home visit in the hope that care staff will cancel it. This would remove the burden of saying she doesn’t want to go herself which she feels would be like rejecting her family. This finally leads me to the grandfather who would have been the only male to have been involved in child A’s development but he appears to have taken a very minor role and chose to stay in the background letting his domineering wife pull the family strings. This meant again that child A had no dominant male role model in her life and reinforced the grandmother’s matriarchal role.
For example if a father leaves the mother unexpectedly and the mother cannot cope looking after the child on her own then the child will be optionally put in care or a care order put in place. Once a family have a breakdown this can put a lot of stress on individuals in the family including the children. The children may struggle with their situation and begin to show signs of behavioural problems, this will stress the single parent and then the child once again may be optionally or forced to be put into care. • Suspected abuse- if there are signs that the parents are abusing the child this can be from physical, emotional, social and intellectual abuse then this would be another reason for the child to have a care order put in
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
Child abuse is a complex phenomenon with multiple causes. Understanding the causes of abuse is crucial to addressing the problem of child abuse. Parents who physically abuse their spouses are more likely than others to physically abuse their children (Garbarino, & Garbarino, 1994). Many physically abusive parents and caregivers insist that their actions are simply forms of discipline—ways to make children learn to behave. But there is a big difference between using physical punishment to discipline and physical abuse.
Patten learned at school that ‘one and one made two’. This metaphor is referring to love and how one person and another come together to make two. But at home it was a completely different story; Patten had parents who fought and didn’t take much interest in him, Patten’s home life ‘stung more than any teachers cane’ which shows the extent of how painful love came across to him. In his home life he learned that ‘one and one stayed one and one’. His parents actions when he was young left him with the idea that love and relationships are horrible and all it does is hurt us, he felt as if it’s not worth going through the pain and stress.
At this time period children do not have the capability to use reason. Parenting style has a major impact on children and their temperament. Neglectful, uninvolved parenting can lead to children feeling sad and lonely [ (Berger, 2011) ]. Child abuse is defined as “deliberate action that is harmful to a child’s physical, emotional, or sexual well-being” [ (Berger, 2011) ]. Two warning signs of child abuse or child maltreatment are hostility toward others and impulsive reactions.
