Spanking is good for the mind because it teaches children. The author also states that a study shows that people who are spanked perform better at school and is most likely to want to college than their peers who had never been physically disciplined. Also stated in the article, research lack much info because it was difficult to find subjects who had never been spanked. In the study that was conducted it shows that results that others do not show because it involved 2600 individuals that never been spanked. It was difficult in more traditional time to find subjects. Also other studies have been conducted that support this that spanking is good for child’s
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
Section 43 of the Criminal Code states that “Every schoolteacher, parent or person standing in the place of a parent is justified in using force by way of correction toward a pupil or child, as the case may be, who is under his care, if the force does not exceed what is reasonable under the circumstances”.(Government of Canada,1985) The action of corporal punishment, otherwise known as “spanking” is done to improve a child’s behaviour or eliminate reoccurrence of disobedience. Spanking a child is an ineffective way to discipline children and exposes them into an aggressive environment. This type of punishment models the use of aggression and violence, teaching children it is acceptable to use violence. The practice of spanking often correlates with children developing into violent adolescents. In addition to its ineffectiveness at correcting children’s behaviour, spanking can lead to life long side effects. Long term effects of corporal punishment that children develop include mental health issues, increase in delinquent behaviour during childhood, criminal behaviour and negative parent-child relationships.(Sage Journals, 2000) In addition to long term side effects that corporal punishment has on children, national professional organizations agree and strive to eliminate corporal punishment.

This study was conducted on April 25, 2016 by experts at The University of Texas at Austin and the University of Michigan. Elizabeth Gershoff and co-author Andrew Grogan-Kaylor. Their study focuses on what most Americans would see as spanking and not a potentially abusive behavior. During their study they found that spanking your children can cause them to defy their parents more frequently and can also cause a lifelong mental health issue. It showed as the frequency of spanking increases, the likelihood of anti-social behavior, mental health issues, and aggression also increases.
Have you ever questioned the way to discipline your child? As claimed by Elizabeth Gershoff ,” Spanking expected will increase in children’s aggression over and higher than initial levels [of aggressive behavior].” Elizabeth Gershoff is demand that if you spank your kid he/she can get a lot of aggressive throughout The years. In Dr. Jared Pingleton perspective,” Disciplining our sons and daughters is an element of the powerful work of parenting, however it 'll pay dividends within the long-standing time.” In different words, Dr. Jared Pingleton asserts that oldsters have a giant half in teaching their youngsters what 's sensible and what 's wrong to provide them the steerage they have to measure their life as effectively and healthfully as attainable. even if spanking is maltreatment and it 's wrong to strike your own kin, spanking will teach your kid regarding respect and obedience as a result of if you do not teach them, they become spoiled and ungrateful, as a result of beating your kidis that the pis aller if things get out of hand.
Discipline is about guiding children and helping them learn what is expected. They gradually learn how to control their own behavior.
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:
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
Spanking remains a common, if controversial, childrearing practice in the United States (Gershoff, 2013). I believe that parents should be trusted with the freedom and responsibility of shaping their children’s behavior. Spanking can be one effective discipline option among the many options in a parents’ disciplinary process (Gershoff, 2013). I believe spanking, as a disciplinary action, is useful and should be administered within the proper guidelines.
Growing up my parents ran a daycare in(at) our house so I was always surrounded by children (the good and the bad). My parents were the type who had no problem enforcing physical punishments such as spanking, the flick of the hand, a pop on the mouth, etc. All these punishments are within the definition of acceptable punishment as stated by Oklahoma law (qtd. ---). They practiced this on me, my siblings, and the daycare kids (with parental consent). In different instances, this would come up in conversations and the reactions were for the majority “that’s awful” or “poor thing” or “I can’t understand how anyone could do such a thing” and I never fully understood why. My mother was raised with an abusive father and a compromising mother (who too was dealing with the abuse), so I have seen how a negative experience can have a positive impact/result (message) on a person/child. I have now grown a curiosity to understand the different limits of child abuse and believe what my parents did benefitted me and any other children who received this discipline. With that in mind, I am going to define, and explore different aspects of child abuse with some modern examples.
The idea behind spanking a child is that it will help improve their behavior. There have been studies showing that people who were spanked as a child are more successful. They are also more likely to volunteer to help others. Also people who were spanked as children tend to be more disciplined. They have more control over their emotions.
The subject of spanking a child is and has been discussed and researched by many. This form of punishment or redirecting a bad behavior has been used probably since the beginning of time. Does spanking always work? I think that most of the time it will but some kids are BAD. When I was a child I got spanked but not often (because I was a good child) and when I did it was after my mother had lost her patients with me. As a child I did not like spankings (no child does) and I was extremely mad at my mom for spanking me. After words my mother would come talk to me and explain to me what I did wrong and that she still loved me (I told her she did not love me every time she spanked me). After we talked I realized I did not need to do that and I
More people in the United States are beginning to realize how ineffective and dangerous spanking is. For example, it makes kids more violent and impairs prosocial behavior (206). Some people even go as far as calling spanking inhumane (2016). Also, many states have made it illegal to spank kids at school (206). However, most people still spank their children and would scoff at the idea of ever making this act illegal. Unlike the United States, some countries do not find spanking tolerable. 24 countries have even passed laws banning child corporal punishment (206).
Corporal punishment is a controversial topic and has been the source of extensive legal debate on a global scale, with evidence being presented to support numerous countering views and opinions. Reasonable corporal punishment in the home is still protected by the law in South Africa, and many South Africans are in support of the continuation of its legality. Although some of the arguments raised are valid, the evidence conveying the harms inflicted on children by physical disciplinary methods supports the viewthat the defense of reasonable disciplinary chastisement in South Africa should be discontinued and corporal punishment should be illegalized in its entirety. The future of corporal punishment is questionable, and with more
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.
