There have been many discussions on whether spanking or corporal punishment is a manifestation of abuse to children or whether it should be used to discipline a child. In today’s society many parents thinks that spanking a child is one of the better approaches to correct him/her if that child has done something that the parent believes is not right. Part of the problem is that everyone characterizes spanking, or corporal punishment differently. “Corporal punishment is the use of physical force with the intention of causing a child to experience pain but not injury for the purposes of correction or control of the child’s behavior” (Gershoff, 2002). In Corporal Punishment, parents usually hit a child with their hands, or objects such as a
To contribute to the psychological growth of children, parents can also be evaluated for the upbringing of their child and how their actions affect the different levels of their child’s core development system. Parents, being the most influential factor in the contribution to a child’s behavior during growth, closely monitor and filter behavior into what they consider wrong and right through different means of discipline. Discipline like this can be easily separated into two categories: reward, and punishment. Punishment, when used as a primary form of discipline, can hinder the cognitive development of their children. This can produce a psychological turmoil within the child and often leads to several forms of depression and anxiety
As well as with “creative violence”, this term is correlated to the idea of helping children learn how to deal with rage and even be able to control it whenever life becomes challenging. Even though parents may not see the appeal of letting their children be exposed to violent content, they should consider the positives it can provide for their children. Overall, Jones used logos, ethos, and pathos effectively to persuade the audience that parents need to start protecting their children from being selfish or over powered people, but instead help them with exploring violence in a healthy manner to help them achieve a better persona. The intended audience for Jones’ article would be parents and teachers. Whoever the reader may be, they can notice that the publisher, Mother Jones, allows articles to be written by staff or other contributors on various topics such as
Child Development should be something that a parent and kid should be able to enjoy and not learn to be aggressive, because of the way that their parents punish them or talk to them with an aggressive tone of voice. Tone’s the most important part of changing a child’s behavior it’s simple act happy and energetic around them and they’ll follow in the same steps. Act aggressive and violent, then that’s the way the children will act.
As children began grow, they began to make their own choices and learn to deal with the consequence of their mistakes. However, some parents will try to protect this process which can harm their child by them not accepting responsibility on their own. An article by Dr. Nathan Lents has given the audience a view about those who tend to be overprotective parents are actually not
This can infer that at a young age infants know that when something is wrong or correct in a situation, so when they are older they know that when making a plan to hurt someone is wrong and they know the consequence of their actions. Furthermore, we do not just know when something is wrong or right when we are infants, but also as teens. Teens are impulsive, but they know that their actions can lead to many consequences. In The Atlantic article “Dopamine and Teenage Logic” it further explains what occurs in a teen’s brain. They reveal that with my studies juveniles are aware of the risks of their actions/ behaviors.
People can be affected like this due to the fact of their lifestyle as a child as it can manipulate their personality watching the way others behave, to a child, parents’ are a role model as to which they will copy them and this will become their personality. This is because if they have been told from a young age that this is an acceptable way to behave then they will continue to act this way and repeat the actions that they’ve been taught due to the fact they haven’t been disciplined for the actions that they are enforcing upon other people. Furthermore, another example would be if a child is in a fight and the parents encourage to hit back hander and then they then get rewarded for it, they are more likely to keep on copying this behaviour as they enjoy being rewarded from their role model. This is an example of operant conditioning and positive reinforcement. However, if the child hit somebody and received a negative consequence then the child will not be as likely to commit the action again.
The strain theory states simply that there are many stressors in a young person’s life which may cause them to “act out.” The social learning theory states that adolescents imitate what they see either at home or within their peer group, which often leads to imitating criminal or delinquent behavior. The control theory states that the amount of control a parent has over their child (whether too strong or too loose) has an impact on their behavior and their likelihood to engage in delinquent behavior. Finally, the labeling theory focuses not on what initially causes delinquent behavior but the reaction that such behavior sanctions and the behavior that follows said reaction. In many cases, one aspect in an adolescent’s life can be related back to more than one, if not all four of these theories. The content that is shown through media outlets such as video games and television has a major impact on the behavior of adolescents
First and most effective way of influence in young people’s behavior is giving a good example. There are cases when parents give their children negative examples by smoking, quarrelling, fighting and even beating each other in front of a child. However, if parents give a good example to their children they may become idols for them and their children will try to behave the same way as their parents to be the same successful, kind and to live prosperous. Adults have more experience, they are wisdom that is why younger people should listen to them and learn on their
One of the studies conducted in the United States have showed that those parents who are involved in delinquency acts will have more chances that their adolescent will be also involved in the criminal activities (the Effects of Parental Dysfunction on Children, New York, NY: Springer, US.). This is due to observational learning. Parents are like a model for their children and in observational learning a particular behavior is learned by observing a model. It is argued that irritable, ineffective discipline and poor parental monitoring are the most proximal determinants of the early development and maintenance of antisocial
