Spanking Makes a Parent Wrong, Not a Misbehaved Child Despite being commonly practiced throughout society, spanking remains a highly controversial topic. Spanking is analogous to abuse in nature- it involves inflicting pain (usually by hand) onto the rear of a child in response to socially unacceptable behavior. A 2013 study conducted by The Harris Poll revealed horrifying statistics that eighty-one percent of Americans believe it is “sometimes appropriate” to spank their children (Corso) in order to establish discipline. Although this is believed by many parents to promote good behavior, it in fact does the opposite. Parents should not have the right to spank their children because it is not an effective method of changing behavior, it is
Even though maybe not intentional people do proceed to be influenced by these corrupted individuals, to then ruin themselves either physically or mentally. People would be too worried about bettering themselves and reaching their goals, to be
Although some may think that it will be helpful, others will always be against it. Without usage restrictions made by the courts, several cases will come up that won’t be worth fighting. In the end, the usage of these devices is a violation of an individual’s 4th Amendment
It is now too often the case industry conveys that information about mental disorders. While this education may be very beneficial in sensitizing populations to the mental health needs of children and adolescents it also holds the risk of distorted messages being conveyed to an anxious and needy populous, may limit the full potential of an appropriate diagnostic evaluation and limit the treatment options considered. Furthermore, oppression and domination are known to impact children and young adults in the foster care system. “Young people that are obstructed or prevented from becoming competent or from being able to communicate their opinions, desires, and emotions experienced a form of oppression” (Bruskas, Delilah, R.N., M.N. 2008).
However, it is still a widely used disciplinary strategy by parents. A parent may question this meta-analysis based on his or her own reasoning that if spanking is as detrimental as the research claims, then why is used commonly across cultures. Parents associate spanking with more immediate compliance from their children and therefore continue to use it without knowing the long-term effects it will have on children. In addition to research that proves spanking is detrimental to children, there is research that claims physical punishment is effective under certain circumstances. This research leads parents to believe that spanking does not have negative effects which is not accurate.
Some parents may hide crucial information such as divorce, disease, and other information as they see it as a means of protecting their children. Some parents may lie to their children because they look up to them, and they see it as disappointing their children if they know the truth (Bronson, 2008). With lying, they are not exposed to losing the trust of their children, and they see this as an easy route since
Building a trusting relationship can help children believe that discipline isn’t arbitrary or done out of anger. After reading these articles, I agree with Brendan Smith: Physical punishment can work momentarily only because children don’t want to be hit but doesn’t instill good behavior long term. Both articles presented great positions but ‘A Case
Nichols does not really talk about these type of bad emotions but he does mention that certain emotions have shaped norms throughout time, he just isn’t specific about it. Another argument against Nichols could be that children do feel guilt. If neo-sentimentalists are right, to think that something is wrong, for example, is to think that guilt is fitting for doing it but, Nichols claims, children who distinguish moral from conventional violations do not yet possess the concept of guilt. It is not easy to determine either whether children make full-blown moral judgments or experience guilt. There is some evidence that very young children exhibit behavioural signs of
While enjoying helping people mentally and emotionally, I do not want to harm them in any way, especially when my experiment is set out to prove a major problem within society. I do enjoy learning about different disorders of people who are viewed as different in today’s world. The many years of schooling will also help in my case of taking all possible aspects and outcomes that can happen while conducting an experiment. Problem solving in psychology is the main motive of forming experiments. Many psychologists that have conducted the controversial experiments did not know that their study would experience such backlash.
Spanking children has been a parenting practice in effect for a very long time. In fact, it’s difficult to remember a time when children were not punished for what parents consider to be bad behavior. While spanking may be considered a way to discipline children, there are a plethora of harmful effects that arise from the practice. The harmful side effects resulting from physical punishment include violence, the infliction of emotional stress and miscommunication or misunderstanding. Primarily, violence is one of the most detrimental effects resulting from spanking as spanking encourages children to commit bad acts upon their parents.
Therefore, people may see going against an unjust law as something to avoid because of the aftereffect they will be having to face. Furthermore, It is right to oppose something that is unjust. Individuals should do what they best believe is right in their opinions but laws shouldn’t be fully subjected by the people only or else it may lead to future conflicts and misleading mistakes. Overall, by desired changes, it causes destructive tension for
Abused children often have trouble having their allegations collaborated as legal and social service investigations of abuse allegations contribute to inaccurate eyewitness accounts and false memories that make it difficult for the legal system to protect these vulnerable children (Goodman, et al., 2001). Clinicians find it hard to classify abused from nonabused children due to a lack of a psychological profile for abused children (Kendall-Tackett, Williams, & Finkelhor, 1993). When there are no other witnesses to corroborate children’s accounts, investigators often employ suggestive interviewing techniques that sometimes shape children’s false memories that build the investigators’ reports (Krackow & Lynn, 2003). Some research has found that nonabused children
Being ehtical and honest is also vital in argumentation. Again, if you are not aware of your audience and they don 't understand the context of the phrases and words, then you will not be able to use either perspective to persuade them. You may also becuase of their own undestanding, may come off as dishonest and unethical. Rybacki and Rybacki
In addition to this, they may also fail to recognize the body gestures (pointing, waving) or facial expressions of a person. Autistic children having social difficulties may not interact happily with their friends as they find taking turns as challenging. These kids also struggle with eye contact, and it may seem that they keep staring at a person.
