Spanking a child is an ineffective way to discipline children and exposes them into an aggressive environment. This type of punishment models the use of aggression and violence, teaching children it is acceptable to use violence. The practice of spanking often correlates with children developing into violent adolescents.
Will good parenting skills change a child’s bad behavior? Some people may say that to fix a child’s behavior parents should involve punishment.

For many, spanking a kid is deemed to be one of the best ways to raise a kid. Since the previous generations, also known as the older generations were raised this mode, many accredit that applying the almost exact same method on their kids can lead these youngsters to learn and grow straight, therefore expecting that a spanked kid will aftermath in a prospective society with future gracefully informed and well educated adults. However, corporal punishments aren’t indeed the appropriate way neither the best solution to deal with the misbehavior of a little bairn. Spanking a kid, whether it’s with bare hands or a flat object, may lead some kids to actually rebel against their family.

While it is becoming common knowledge spanking has negative impacts on the emotional and psychological health of children, the practice still endures in American society. This is because our society regards the practice as one rooted in the saying, “Spare the rod, spoil the child.” In addition, this concept of discipline is believed by some to be a means of teaching a child their place in the world. Though this phrase and system derives from Judeo-Christian faith, in modern times it has become a senseless punishment tradition. The way in which religious customs turn into pointless ideologies or means to obtain the upper hand is frightening.
As mentioned previously, a significant number of parents emphasize the use of punishment to ensure total obedience and submission of the child. Most overprotective parents discipline their child through physical punishment and only a few acknowledge the use of explaining and reasoning with the child. The following is a statement of a father and his experience and opinion in punishments: After punishment [such as spanking], we believe we should always end up reconciled, with a hug and a kiss, and the situation is over. No matter what the situation is or what the punishment is, we always love them afterward. As a matter of fact we show more love toward them after we have punished them.
Spanking is a type of physical punishment involving the act of striking another person to cause pain, generally with an open hand. More severe forms of spanking, such as switching, paddling, belting, caning, whipping, and birching, involve the use of an implement instead of a hand. Parents tend to spank their child to discontinue an undesired behavior. Throughout history there have been many forms of punishment, such as spanking, grounding, and timeouts.

Punishments and violence in child education remain as something that never left humanity since the beginning of the age. Parents ordinarily conducts punishments, even incorporating violence on it for the right cause. Moreover, in a majority of cultures and history, the common belief incites that punishments must act as the absolute way of disciplining and raising a child right. But in recent times, researchers and scholars who have conducted the study and are claiming that violence and punishment for the children, even the mild ones, are never to be done since it affects the children negatively. Using various elements of nonfictions, ethos, pathos, and logos, in the article “No Spanking, No Time-Out, No Problems” author Khazan attempts to persuade
Did you get spanked as a child? There are many people that would say that they were spanked as a child, they would most likely also remember being put in time out and being grounded for how they were acting. Olga Khazans article she makes a bold statement stating that people should not discipline their children such as spanking children or having time outs.

To me spanking should be the last thing a parent need to use as a punishment. I do occasionally spank my children, but only after I have tried everything else (i.e multiple warnings, time outs , and loose privileges). However, as my children gets older I am noticing that I am spanking them less because they are getting to the age where I can talk to them and reason with them more. As a child I was spanked quite often, mostly by my teacher. I grew up in a country where teachers are free to spank children in classrooms whenever they feel the need to. At home my mother was in charged of spanking me and I don't feel like she ever got carried away with it. I never tried to hide or lied my way out a spanking because ,as we all knows, that usually
