They often plead that corporal punishment can show dominance, correct behavior, and that all children are different. Corporal punishment does display an aggressive form of dominance: but on the other hand, a child may revert to bullying other children to display dominance and also have high aggression levels and low patience. Similarly, physical discipline has never been scientifically proven to correct bad behavior long-term. Corporal punishment may fix an issue short-term, but eventually the child will do it again and spanking or hitting them will not fix the issue, rather they must address the issue in a calm manner and discuss with a child why what they have done is wrong. Given, all children are unique and react differently to a variety of different forms of discipline: corporally punishing a child has never been useful and a multitude of tests have been done on different children.
Society often tends to accept that fact that parents might sometimes physically hurt their children as long as this harm is not related to serious physical injuries. Spanking, for example, is usually not associated with the real intention of parents to hurt their children, yet abuse is defined by the harm that it brings and not by motivation of the caregivers. Physical abuse, as empirical studies show, is associated with the chronic arousal of stress responses and high level of arousal to environment (Jelic Tuscic, Flander & Matescovic, 2013). Therefore, regardless of the fact that physical abuse might often be perceived as something that only affects child’s physical state, the negative consequences of physical child abuse are also psychological. As to short-term consequences of this type of abuse, they include injuries and chronic pain.
In the article family spokesperson Najee Ali states “Everyone 's afraid of standing up for what 's morally right...People are afraid to hold people morally responsible.” This statement rings both true and false, it is not always true and at times should not even be considered as a factor because judging a person morals is a slippery slope that could lead to a culture of pretentiousness and falsehoods. At the same time what Ali is stating is something that rings true for many people and organizations, who should use their voices to stand up for what is morally right and show where their values lay. Schools should not be a judge of morals or deny people for that reason alone, David Cash did not break any laws but he did have one created because of his actions, so his morals do come into question as it should in cases like this. But that should not be the standard nor should it be a defining factor in acceptance to schools but it should be one
Some parents really do want the best for their kids and they know whether a certain surgery is necessary or not. On the other hand, there may be an instance where a teen is extremely insecure about their appearance and they’ve been bullied about it. The parents love their child and don’t see anything wrong. They might not even know about the bullying or even if their kid was insecure at
Spanking can also be used to stop kids from doing something shouldn’t be doing or stopping them from doing something dangerous that can potentially harm them. A good spank will snap the child back into reality, the child will know why he/she got spanked and will be too afraid to do it again; however spanking should be used as a last resort when all fails. Children are supposed to respect and obey their parents and it is the parents’ duty to take charge and make sure that their doing just that. However we all know that that isn’t always trust. Some time talking or taking away their cell phone might not always be that effective.
Also, the evidence for why it should not be used is more factual based than the evidence for why it should be used. However, there will always be parents who still believe corporal punishment is for the good of the child. Children who are subjected to this form of punishment tend to project violence towards others because they view that as an acceptable form of behavior. In their minds, they do not see violence toward their peers any different than their parents physically punishing them. This cycle continues because when the children reaches adulthood, he or she will use corporal punishment on his or her child.
Like some commentators say that the increasing power prenatal intervention as a threat to the sacredness of human life. The things worry them are that parents will want superior children instead of healthier children and parent chose those traits which children consider undesirable. There is also a possibility that social pressure may force parent to choose a trait, which they don’t want in their baby especially woman. The desirability of traits and genes differ from one culture to other culture. One culture accepts that traits and the other culture neglected it, which is a biggest flaw.
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.
Rules and following them are the most important things to an authoritarian parent. In this style parents raise their child to follow every instruction they give them and to obey every rule imposed. Failure to obey and follow these results in punishments. Authoritarian parents fail to explain the reasoning behind rules and when kids ask questions instead of explaining and actually answering the question they normally respond with “because i say so”, meaning they are not responsive to their children, even though they have high demands for them. Kids raised with this parenting style normally fear their parents and consequently are dishonest with them when they do something wrong.
Coporal Punishment which is the act of violence toward a child who has misbehaved is argued by many to either be abusive to the child or helpful. Some people argue that children which expierence coporal punishment are more likely to grow up and become vandals and thieves while others argue that coporal punishment makes a child tougher and prepares them for the real world. While Coporal Punishment was more accepted in the past its acceptance is declining more as we head to the future. The media has made Coporal Punishment feel wrong and abusive and while parents might still approve of it, they might not feel pollitcally correct talking about it. In my opinion Coporal Punishment can be effective but can also be abusive depending on how your
There is a huge controversy going on about this but I would make it to where it cannot happen. I know some people may be upset about this but some couples of the same sex want kids and I feel that the kids would be hurt worse. My reasoning for this is because I believe that a child should be raised in a home where his/her mother or father. If his/her parent or not together they should know they have a mother and a father, not two moms or two dads. My opinion is raising a child up in that type of atmosphere would have them confused and they will think that it is the right thing to do, which is not.
some pro-life people agree with a few of these reasons. Some people that are pro-life do not agree with the fact that rape should be an option if the child was conceived by rape. They believe the mother should carry the child to term, and if she doesn’t want to keep the child just put it up for adoption. pro-choice people don’t agree with this. Pro-life believe that it’s not fair because once that child finds out he/she will wonder why the mother didn’t want them, or the mother if she decides to keep the baby there’s chances that the child could be abused or neglected because of the circumstances under which the child was conceived.
Spanking is a form of corporal punishment that is commonly used to discipline children all around the world. This form of punishment typically consists of an adult striking the child’s bottom or hand as a reaction to unwanted behavior. There are many arguments that are made on whether a child should be spanked or not, many people tend to believe it’s fair while other believe it’s simply wrong. A growing body of research has shown that spanking and other forms of physical discipline can pose serious risks to children, but many parents aren’t hearing the message. Those who do not believe in spanking say spanking is a form of child abuse.
Have you ever had an opinion on if child soldiers should have consequences on their actions or have u ever thought that it is not all their fault? Many people say the kids should be prosecuted because they know what they were doing while others think differently. I believe that it is not the kids fault, the first reason i think this is because when kids are kids they can’t tell grown ups what they want to do. The second reason i think that they should not be prosecuted is because while they are being recruited they get drugged. The last reason i think that kids should be set off free is because when the children are fighting they can be in serious danger.
