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.
Spanking is however still widely used as a means to punish kids across the world. Some have opposed it as a great idea to punish kids owing to it being able to affect their emotions as well as psychology. After being beaten so much the child will only behave when subjected to pain. This only result in more pain as a way to deal with those kids found to have hardened leading to abuse. Most of those found to result to spanking may be frustrated, and only trying to express their emotions.
Spanking and Aggression in Young Children Can spanking really lead to aggressive behavior in young children? In my opinion, it can and usually does. Have you ever gotten a spanking from a parent or adult, but then were told “hitting and slapping are not okay,” by that same adult? You probably felt confused or angry and asked them, “why is it ok for you to slap me, but it’s not okay for me to slap you?” This is one of a few reasons why I do not believe spanking is an effective form of punishment and can lead to aggressive behavior in children. It can cause confusion, which can then lead to stress, which can then result in aggressive behavior from the child.
spanking can include an increased on aggressiveness, antisocial behavior and delinquenc It can also cause mental illness. Doctor Phil comments that when that parents model aggressive behavior by spanking, they reinforce the idea physical aggression is the way to get what you want. Spanking can be associated with a poorer relationship between parent and child (2012). Some spanked children can feel justified in beating up on smaller ones. Spanking can cause the infant feel sad, hate themselves and become depressed.
For example, an individual can become depressed after witnessing domestic violence within their own home and is afraid that the domestic violence will happen to them personally if they tell someone. I know someone who has been affected directly and indirectly from domestic violence from both parents and his former wife. Due to the domestic violence he has bouts of depression, social anxiety and panic attacks. The Acquisitive typology is someone who often will see students bullying other students to receive popularity. The students being bullied become afraid of the bully and will try and become friends with the bully in order to keep from being bullied anymore.
Chyna As many as 90 percent of parents think it's OK to spank young children (Taylor, par.2) Spanking in definition is: an act of slapping on the buttocks as a punishment for children. Although this act may seem harmless in some perspectives, it could be interpreted as abuse and an unloving act out of anger. Even though a parent’s child is their responsibility and their business, I do not agree with them having the right to spank their children. It has been proved that spanking children at age 3 makes them more likely to become bullies by age 5(Taylor, par.2). Children may see this act as hatred, uncaring, and can cause a bit of confusion.
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.
Some people see corporal punishment as abusing, they wonder how anyone could do that to a child. They have better methods of dealing with their children when they misbehave. You can take away toys, game consoles, cell phone, their favorite activity, outside time, the list can go on as every child is different. Some think children that are spanked as a kid grows up to be violence adult. It has been said that all the violence in the world would slow down if we showed our children love and attention.
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.
“Bullying is a big problem that effects millions of students, and it has everyone worried, not just the kids on it’s receiving end” (Lyness 1). Bullying does not just affect kids, but the parents too. It affects the parents because a lot of their children begin to be afraid attending school. In the novel Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson, Melinda was affected by being bullied lead her to think about suicide, scared of coming to school, and victims like Melinda begin to not care about school and fail. Melinda was affected by being bullied and led to many things and one of them is thinking about suicide.
