(source used) D. Concluding Sentence: Therefore, it is obvious that physical punishment is still being used by parents widely, yet this idea can be easily opposed due to the physical harm that the child is exposed to and how this creates children’s fear from their parents rather than loving them. III. Body Paragraphs IV. First Reason: psychological A. Topic Sentence: There is overwhelming evidence that physical punishment is both ineffective and harmful to a child’s psychological development.
Emotional abuse is one of the most common and harmful forms of child abuse. Making fun of a child, name-calling, always finding fault, and showing no respect can damage a child 's self-esteem. According to a study published in 2014 by the American Psychological Association (APA), “Children who are emotionally abused and neglected face similar and sometimes worse mental health problems as children who are physically or sexually abused, yet psychological abuse is rarely addressed in prevention programs or in treating victims…” This creates a huge stigma around this type of abuse. It also allows abusers to use the type of rhetoric that my own father did, saying things like “there’s no such thing as abuse. That’s made up by liberals so that kids have a reason to think they’re being abused and the government has a reason to take kids away from their parents.” This rhetoric can also be called gaslighting.
Physical abuse has a negative effect on a child and their overall development. It affects a child, in a way they think, and behaviour. Children tend to see that physical abuse, either upon them or to someone else and react it on someone else, thinking it 's “okay”. “If that adult does it, its okay if I do it”. Also, when a child is upset or mad, instead of talking it out, the child might go straight to hitting and physically harming another child.
Miller (2010) conjectured that children who grow up under authoritarian parenting styles often experience long term emotional consequences. They tend to have poor social skills, low self-esteem, anger and higher rates of depression and anxiety. It is due to independence is discouraged; children are taught to follow rules rather than taking initiatives. They are not taught how to think. This lack of independence, both emotional and physical, can eventually result in low self-esteem.
This can cause a multitude problems for the child and can often be overwhelming. This has created an argument that is still being debated on today. Some people say that specializing in one sport is positive since it gives kids the competitive edge they need. Others say that it is damaging to a child’s health due to the negative effects it can have both physically and mentally. The truth of the matter is that specializing in a single sport at a young age is proven to be harmful.
. . . a steady diet of negative stereotypes as portrayed in the media can be very destructive to young people if there are also very few positive role models that they can identify with. Fair and accurate media portrayals are critical as it is how many, especially children, consider their own potential and limitations (as understood by today’s Because of Them We Can and Por Ellos, Sí Podemos movements).
So, I know they had some very hard lessons as well. Moreover, a lot of people disagree with spanking their children. Spanking is now seen as abuse or neglect. When whooping your child, today, you must be careful. People who do not believe in whooping their kids may get offended when they see you doing it.
Depression is a psychiatric disorder that afflicts young people with chronic feelings of sadness or worthlessness—the defining characteristic of the disorder is that it robs a person of the capacity for pleasure. Unhappiness triggered by events is not uncommon in children, but it normally goes away when circumstances change. A child with depression doesn’t recover when events change; her dark mood and lack of interest in things she used to enjoy will persist. Depression can interfere with all aspects of a child’s life, resulting in absences from school, trouble socializing with peers, and, in severe cases, thoughts of suicide. Depression is diagnosed when negative feelings, lack of interest in previous activities, and physical symptoms like fatigue and insomnia persist for at least 2 weeks.
This topic is a little touchy because spanking has become more controversial lately. Some arguments that defend the use of occasional spanking of children in order to discourage negative behavior are that it teaches long-term discipline and that children should be spanked to learn discipline to function well in society. Some of the negative after-effects that have been linked to spanking children are that children who are spanked are more likely to be aggressive, withdrawn, or have behavioral problems when they go to school. Some of the more shocking effects from spanking that were in the accompanying media were that kids who have been spanked have a decreased verbal capacity by age 9 and that it may cause children to have mental health issues.
Unfit parents negatively affect the child’s emotional development, which leads to behavioral problems. Most parents have o intention to hurt their child on purpose, but sometimes they do it out of lack of experience or parenting skills (Lackovi-Grgin, 2000; Aberle et al., 2007). Adolescent Self-
