Spanking, is it really child abuse or a form of discipline for your children. Many people are misled with the term spanking and think that spanking is abuse because you are hurting your child, however that is not the case; the term spanking is the act of slapping, especially on the buttocks as a punishment for children. Abuse have a completely different definition it is use to bad effect or for a bad purpose; misuse. Spanking is a way of discipline used to better your child for the future, to make them understand that there are consequences to their actions and disobediences. 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.
The debate surrounding the ethical practice of corporal punishment is a long one. For years, parents, as well as teachers, have argued whether or not they should physically punish children. By definition, corporal punishment is “physical pain inflicted on the bodies of a child as a penalty for disapproved behavior” (Dupper & Montgomery Dingus, 2008). This includes the use of any intentional methods such as hitting, spanking, paddling, exercise drills, painful body postures, and even electric shock. These methods usually end in injuries such as welts, blood blisters, severe bruising, hematomas, and broken blood clots (Dupper et al, 2008).
As they grow up to a certain age, kids might start smoking, sneak out of the house and do other immoral meretricious actions as an outcome to get even with their family for previously spanking them. Some brats that are daily spanked may even get to the point where they would want to retaliate from the person that is usually spanking them. Spanking a kid may also affect a kid’s education and mean of interaction in a society. Researchers and psychologist point that kids being spanked may develop learning disorder, difficulties to stay focused, and lack creativity. Kids are kinetic beings, they learn by moving around and using their hands.
Corporal punishment has been talked about for many years if parents should or shouldn’t beat their kids. Many view that beating their kids, if other ways aren’t working, is a way to bring to their attention that the parent means business. Many studies have been taken opposing the use of corporal punishment but as today’s disrespectful children may need a few spanking to put them back on track. In an article called “8 Reasons to Spank your Kid” by LaShaun. Nicole Williams she gives 8 reasons why spanking your children is a good thing.
In the book No Crueler Tyrannies, Dorothy Rabinowitz builds the nature of her criticism upon false confessions extracted by leading questions and groundless ideas implanted into the minds of children to get a testimony by psychologists who are acting prejudiced under the influence of social hysteria, which was raised majorly by media in response to the Child Abuse Reporting Act that terrorized United States starting in mid 70’s. With Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act, which was enacted in 1974, people started to wake up to possible abuses happening around them and began to report any kind of suspicious demeanor. Every report regardless of its reliability was drummed up by the media and contributed to a moral panic situation in 80’s.
Through out King's writing he had very similar reoccurring themes, most of them are about children against monsters, which the monsters symbolizes the evils of the outside world. An example is, education systems who only support or show off certain kids, or abusive parents, or troubled children with a troubled life, or innocence being destroyed. An example of this is shown in his novel Carrie, a girl living with abuse from her mother and was bullied at school which led her to kill her mother, and almost everyone in her class. An example of children losing innocence is shown in one of Kings famous novels It which is about a bunch of kids who weren't very popular and were haunted by a clown and they drive the clown, named Pennywise, away then he later returns when they are adults and they are forced to kill Pennywise. When Stephen was younger, he always felt like the underdog and didn't fit in very well because of his size and appearance.
Inkblots are spots that vary in shapes, sizes, and color. Psychologist say the interpretation of inkblots can detect a person’s personality, characteristics and emotional functioning. Even though this has yet to be proven, Psychologist still believe this is an accurate way to assign a diagnosis, or change how a therapist understands a client. In an article by Damion Searls, a psychologist gave a Rorschach test to a suspicious potential employee named Norris. Norris’ answers were extremely shocking, the article described what he saw as ‘violent sexual scenes with children; parts of the inkblots seen as females being punished or destroyed.’ The Rorschach test revealed a side of Norris he did not want to others to see.
I argued it could be both. In this paper, I explained how Aileen Wuornos became a killer based on her life and upbringing. She had experienced long-term abuse as a child, had been abandoned/having no emotional bond by her primary caregivers, and began “hooking” because she was desperate to survive. Was the first man she killed in self-defense or was she going through post-traumatic stress disorder based on the abuse of her childhood? I argued that whether it was self-defense or not, I believe she went through post-traumatic stress disorder.
For example my neighbor’s daughter had become violent the older she got. The parents blamed it all on the weapon like toys she played with while growing up. When the school and psychiatrists got involved, however, they found out they could be the problem. I believe that kids should be able to play with toy guns as a
All these traits are similarly associated with psychopathy, therefore it is claimed that children can be psychopaths or become future violent psychopaths. It is important to understand the basics of psychopathy, as it is an increasing topic around the world. Since the lack of empathy is one of the predominant influences in distinguishing and creating a psychopath, and since some children can present psychopathic tendencies, is it possible to teach children empathy to prevent them from becoming violent psychopaths as adults?
For some children this may not even work but it is definitely worth a shot to help these kids like Deshon. I believe we need to help these kids not be afraid of their foster parent(s). Truthfully, if we give those kids the ability to speak up and get help, These foster parent(s) that they are being abused whether it be mental or physical. I want to help these kids so they don’t have control them
After tearing up, she said, “There was a girl at my school… She was bullied by people I knew, by my best friends. And instead of stopping them, I joined them.” (Davis 212). Katherine explained why she got involved, and went on to say that she was not strong enough to say no. Gaining enough strength, she managed to tell the truth, “I don’t deserve to represent the state of Washington at a pageant or anywhere else… this will be my final pageant… Leslie Gatlin, wherever you are… I’m sorry.” (Davis 213). Realizing the pain that she, along with her friends, caused Leslie made her see what was important.
