I do not believe that to raise a well-discipline child you need to use physical discipline. I thing that one of the most basic ways we can raise your children is simply by being a good role model for them. As Karen Stephens (2007) said parent play a major role in how children turn out. Parent should try to use teaching method to help children to development a sense of responsibility. Also, parent should have more than one strategies to raise a child. The way you respond to a child’s manipulation as a baby sets the tone of the rest of the life together. In my opinion, parents should try to avoid spanking because those children are going to do the same thing on their siblings, their classmate or their friends. Those children who discipline with physical are more likely to become more aggressive and
In September, 2014, CBS Houston reported that Adrian Peterson, a Vikings football player, beat his 4-year-old son with a tree branch that summer. The beating left wounds and welts on the child’s body. Later on, the star running back was indicted on child abuse charges and subsequently deactivated for Minnesota Vikings’ second week game against New England Patriots. Although Adrian has avoided jail time in child abuse case, he yet faced a suspension by NFL Commissioner for the remainder of the entire 2014 season with no pay (Orr 2014). So many articles on most social media highly objected to Adrian’s punishment on his little son. Working in my mother-in-law’s nail salon, I could see how furious some of my customers were toward
Capital punishment, or the death penalty is the execution of an individuals life as a punishment for criminal conviction is currently criminalized in Canada, although should be decriminalized. The act of capital punishment officially became illegal in 1962 when Robert Turpin and Arthur Lucas were the last individuals to be executed in Canada.(Victims of Violence,2016) Since 1962 capital punishment has been a controversial topic with arguments about morals, justice and human rights. capital punishment serves as a deterrent for criminals, provides retribution and makes society safe. Punishment is necessary for extreme criminal cases including first degree murder and serious sexual offences such as rape. The deterrent effect ensures that executions
Spanking can be effective when a child is not listening to a parent. If a child isn’t following proper rules and disregarding their parents’ statement, then a spanking can enforce a form of respect that the child has to follow (Jasmine, 2015). It can be an awakening to reality as the child could now think of how their actions are deviant. Parents that don’t resolve to spanking as the first and only method of discipline is essential for both the parents and the child. I believe a parent should always try to enforce rules by talking and showing examples of how deviant actions are frowned upon. If those options fail, then I think that a parent has a right to spank their child as long as it is rational. The only exception where spanking should come first is if a child is doing something that is life threatening such as playing with a wall outlet, or trying to eat a small toy. Then I think that spanking should be a first action because it will show the message that if they do that again, an immediate spanking could occur. Spanking is not a bad form of discipline when it is used correctly and children can benefit from it and learn what is right and what is
Iris Murdoch not only gives her views on how morality and religion go hand in hand but what makes something morally right or wrong. Jacobus explains Murdoch 's text when he says, “She ends with an interesting discussion of the relationship of two contradictory forces in the universe: good and evil. As she states in a rather paradoxical fashion: ‘Discord is essential to goodness’ (para. 7).” As children we are all taught to make and have opinions on everything that happens in our life. The way we are raised shapes our opinions even if we want to believe it or not but just because a person has an opinion on something does not mean someone who has a different opinion is wrong. Society shapes us differently. Society plays a huge roll in this, society tells us how to act, dress, and even think. The people in society and our opinions tell us if something is good or bad.
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:
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 seen in “The Lottery,” by Shirley Jackson and, “A Good Man is Hard to Find,” by Flannery O’Connor,
Spanking helps prevent them from doing something regrettable later in life. My father once told his friend that if I have to spank my child in order to discipline them and make them understand right from wrong I do by any mean because that’s what parents are for. The most embarrassing thing for a parent and for the child is for the authority to have to discipline your child for
From my own personal experiences, some unruly children only respect a firm spanking with the law prohibiting this practice of parenting it can cause children to go down the wrong path because they don’t have the proper respect for their parents which is where children are supposed to learn respect for an authoritative figure. As the snippet of the comment from Allison, 2014 would suggest it is necessary to spank a child this is evident when the text states “Many of the parenting books that dismissed spanking as wrong pushed that a parent should reason with a child. However, science has proven that due to brain development, it is impossible to reason with a four-year-old. A four-year-old is still developing the concept of cause-and-effect and the beginnings of understanding empathy. Only discipline, causing pain to the four-year-old (and by pain, I do not necessarily mean physical pain) teaches him/her what is allowed.” This comment backs what I stated about a child learning to respect authority. From a more scientific approach in a Newsweek article that followed a nurturing study related to spankings conducted by Drs. Jennifer Lansford and Ken Dodge revealed some insightful details on the effect on corporal punishment in early age development this is apparent when the article states
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
Alan Kazdin uses strategy writing to appeal to the readers who are most likely a parent or a child getting punished. Alan Kazdin offers parents classes, and, in these classes, he speaks about punishment.
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. However, have you ever thought about the way it affects a child’s life? What is the long term outcome? Is there a better way to assist the situation? Many parents feel that it is unnecessary to spank a child because it is not okay to hit, on the other hand, other parents view it as a way of getting the child’s attention and telling them “No.” There are just as
Life experiences and parenting styles that our parents have been exposed to shape the type of parenting style that they have developed. A theory developed by Baumrind suggests that there are four different styles of parenting which are authoritarian, authoritative, neglectful, and indulgent. In families’ characteristics and teachings are typically passed on from generation to generation and the way that our parents were raised are typically the same way that they will choose to raise us. Typically, a parent is not just one type of parenting style they are typically a mix of parenting styles which is good for them to know how to react differently in various situations.
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.
Actually, research has uncovered that parenting styles can impact a child 's social, subjective, and mental development, which influences children both in the childhood years, and as a grown-up. This is on the grounds that children create through various boosts, communication, and trade, which encompass them. The way that parents are consistently around a child 's life they will impact him/her either adversely or decidedly. Parenting styles incorporate legitimate, tyrant, liberal, and careless parenting.
