Intergroup bias is a major problem with terrible consequences for our society and research shows that this human tendency can be evident in children as young as three. This essay has critically discussed the SIT’s social-psychological perspective on why intergroup bias occurs, comparing the SIT model to other theories, highlighting why it is an ideal model to explain intergroup bias. The SIT model refers to self-esteem as the motive for intergroup bias and achieving a positive social identity and enhancing self-esteem may promote intergroup bias (Trepte, 2006).

As one of the children from around the world that was once a victim of spanking and as a science major and hopefully a future doctor, I must say that I am torn on the topic of spanking. My research has led me to different opinions on spanking, it has taught me the good use of spanking in child’s discipline which many adults have tried to convince me of several times. My research also showed me how spanking can lead to the destruction of a child by damaging a child’s brain and making them prone to mental diseases and lowering their intelligence and memory. It also showed me how spanking can lead to physical abuse and bad behaviors. Combined with personal experience, my research made me see that not all spanking is necessarily bad for children.

• Psychodynamic Theories The Psychodynamic theory explains child abuse as a “parental dysfunction.” Followers of this theory such as B.F.
