The intentions of any responsible and loving parent is giving their child the best education possible and the best values that the child may receive. It is evident that the love of a parent lies not only in indulgence and giving the child the best, but also in raising a complete, mindful, and balanced personality. Discipline is the cornerstone of the decent education, and it sometimes requires challenging measures, one of which is corporal punishment, namely, spanking. Many parents today feel that it is perfectly fine to use spanking as a form of discipline for their children. There is a huge debate about this topic all over the world. The use of corporal punishment as child discipline is both ethical and effective. Spanking a child can teach them right from wrong. It is effective to explain to the child why their behavior was wrong so that they may understand why the spanking was enforced, however, only implied in a mindful aim for a strong reason.
In this web page it explains the good and bad of corporal punishment. Many believe punishing a child as an inhuman form of trying to get obedience and, many view it as a way to get their children to lean. Here are some some reason why corporal punishment should be reinstated. They have statistics that shows that without the need of punishment that the crime rate would increase. It shows that between 1981 to 1997, when corporal punishment was legal the crime rate was lower than now that it has been now, with a 67%
For centuries the use of corporal punishment has been an accepted form of discipline worldwide and was seen as an appropriate way of “eliciting behavioral compliance that was conceptually distinct from physical abuse” (Durrant & Ensom, 2012, p. 1373). The last 20 years, however, there has been a dramatic shift in this ideal among the international community. The early 1990’s ushered in numerous research studies that suggested a negative correlation between the use of corporal punishment and emotional, mental, and developmental issues in children (Durrant & Ensom, 2012). Studies have also indicated that the higher number of instances of violence perpetrated on children in the form of corporal punishment, the higher the levels of adult violence. They also suggest that the frequent use of corporal punishment, not only leads to child aggression but also delinquency and criminality. There are also indications that societies who view corporal punishment is relatively normative, more accepting
Corporal punishment is a widely debated and hot button issue. Whatever one's beliefs are on the subject, science has shown that corporal punishment does not work and has many negative consequences.
Each of the reviews has a different viewpoint on corporal punishment; some of the reviews take a look at who is most affected by corporal punishment in terms of focusing their lens on race, socio-economic status, gender, culture etc. Some also take a critical look at the advantages and disadvantages of corporal punishment. Some take a look at the widespread of corporal punishment in the US. Cases against corporal punishment and the effect of corporal punishment on children were also looked into. With all the different ways corporal punishment has been looked into by different research work, there is one common theme every one of them talks about and that is the detrimental effect of corporal punishment on children. Alternative to corporal punishment is what every one of them recommended.
The question of whether corporal punishment is an effective method of discipline is greatly debated. Corporal Punishment is a form of physical discipline that may cause pain for wrongdoing, or to bring for change in ones attitude which may seem disrespectful. Corporal punishment should not be allowed in my opinion because to what extent is this type of punishment considered abuse, it could traumatize children and it may cause the child to grow up thinking that violence and love is ok.
Another reason why corporal punishment should be allowed is because teachers would feel more powerful and have less of a chance of getting stress over yelling at the kids to listen. Kids all over the world don’t fully listen to the teachers who help them(Sifferlin). This causes teachers to get angry and yell at the pupils. Instead of yelling and sending them out of the room, the teachers should whack their hand to let them know they mean business. This would help teachers because they would have less stress. This helps the world and the students because the world would be smarter if
Corporal punishment should not be allowed in schools because it promotes violence. Many students have been beaten by their teachers for doing something negative in school, and have gotten the message that violence is a good thing. The American Academy of Pediatrics has stated some examples of this in the article “Should Corporal Punishment Be Used in K-12 Schools”.They explained that “Children who experience corporal punishment are more likely to hit or use violence against people to get their way.” (Procon.com) This example shows that schools that use corporal punishment, teach that it is ok to use violence to get what students want. Students who see or experience corporal punishment get the message that violence is necessary to get their way. In other words, when those kids are out in the real world, they can not
Many parents argue whether or not corporal punishment is the best form of parenting. All around America, corporal punishment is and always has been accepted as the correct way to discipline children. More recently, the practice has been challenged, but despite much research, many Americans are still not convinced that there is a better way. Unlike drinking milk, smoking, and texting while driving, corporal punishment remains a silenced public health issue. Corporal punishment should be stopped in all American schools and homes.
Corporal punishment is used as a mechanism for controlling behavior in more than just the education system. Although corporal punishment is commonly associated with the education system as a means for punishing school children in modern times: corporal punishment is in no way limited to punishing children and is commonly used towards adults. Corporal punishment has been
No matter how corporal punishment is defined there should be a stop to it. It has become widely accepted in the American culture, Although many argue in the past this type of punishment was effective, their kid 's using corporal punishment is proof that it never was
In many countries, Corporal Punishment at Home and School is the ordinary thing which usually occurs in Vietnam, China, Thailand, etc. This is as a duty of the adults teach their children who are not obedient, or who do something wrong. However, in the United State, punishment by a hand, cane, a ruler, or similar things can be considered as violent behaviors. In addition, that can be a serious crime if someone accuses you. In my opinion, Corporal Punishment is true, but also it is false; for the reason, most of everything has a two-sided face - bad and good thing. It depends on the situation. If you want to apply corporal punishment for teaching your children a lesson, that would be a good thing; however, if you apply corporal punishment to satisfy your anger, that would be a bad idea.
First, physical punishment is used to cause corporal pain to an individual. Physical punishment has become a major problem for children's health. Children have been beating so bad by their parents, that even left mark and bruises permanent on their body. Children bones are fragile since they are not finished developing yet. Physical punishment turns into child abuse once beatings become harsher (Afifi, Mota and Sareen). Secondly, when parents hit their child upside the head it will cause brain trauma. Brain trauma is triggered when a substantial number of forces are pressed on the brain.
Two weeks ago, I was reading about corporal punishment while eating a candy bar. It struck me that while teenagers , like us, are against getting spanked or slapped across the cheek, there is another side of reasoning of whether parents should be allowed to use physical punishments on their children. I realized that sweets are a lot like the parental decision to hit a child. Sugar and punishment may be two very different society issues, yet I found that I could take a peek into the perspective of an adult through sugar. Therefore, whenever my presentation on corporal punishment dries out in your mind, think about how sugar and spanks are alike. Corporal punishment between a parent and a child, is a growing dispute between beliefs, researchers and statistics, shown by Harold Grasmick’s Protestant Fundamentalism article. In the United Nations “Declaration of the Rights of the Child,” it is firmly stated that,”...he[the child] may have a happy childhood and enjoy for his own good and for the good of society...”(196). As long as a child has not violated the law, parents should not have the right to impose corporal punishment their children due to the long-term physical and psychological effects.
Corporal punishment has been around for centuries, and even though with the years there is a lot of advances and changes within the practices of the communities, sometimes it looks like we have not done great with the ways we educate and discipline our children. Research shows that the dangers for corporal punishment outweigh any benefit of instantaneous child obedience (Gershoff, Spring 2010). But if research continues showing the negative aspects of corporal punishment, why do we continue practicing it? Well, I have to start off by tradition, we practice it since the beginning of times, with our children, with women, with animals, etc. And the most common response about its benefits is that it stablishes discipline and respect for adults, however, in my way of seeing it, it creates nothing more than fear, resentment, anger, and frustration for not being able to speak up and stand for yourself.
