A child will always fear coporal punishment because it is painful and nothing will change that. The next myth is that “Spanking is Harmless” Straus claims through research that spanking increases delinquicy, criminal behavior and many other violent actions. In my opinion spanking is not a direct cause for increased risk in these actions but rather it is more likely that spanking occurs in areas where kids grow up to be more deliqeunt and have criminal behavior like poor neighborhoods. The last myth I will be discussing is the myth that “If you don 't spank, your children will be spoiled or run wild”. With this myth Strauss argues that spanked children are more likely to be running wild than non spanked children.
When one faces fear, both processes happen concurrently. The steps that are taken for the first process, are to avoid the chance of danger or risk completely. For instance, eliminating all possible dangers to children on playgrounds as John Tierney explains in his article, “Can a Playground Be Too Safe.” It's far less dangerous to remove all possible dangers, rather than let children experience fear and pain. In the article, John Tierney explains how removing high obstacles from playgrounds has a negative impact on children because when they are faced with a situation they don’t know how to react or
His conclusion was reinforced by two premises: that children should continue being children because they do not comprehend reasoning the same way adults do, and that reasoning with children will reinforce deceitful and dishonest behaviours in order to avoid punishment. By analysis and assessing this article, a conclusion was drawn that since both the premise and the conclusion are true, it makes this a deductive, valid and sound
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.
Due to alienating himself, he finds out that he want to help kids and protect them because they are the only real people in the world according to Holden. Due to his fear of growing up, he also wants to stop the young kids from going into the awful phony adult world. These are the two reasons he has found his purpose in
I agree when Coben says “Trust is one thing, but surrendering parental responsibility to a machine that allows the entire world access to your home borders on negligence” (1). Because when you, as a parent, allow your child to do whatever he/she pleases to do, you begin to put your child in harm's way. Although allowing your child to do certain things without having to get parental permission, there are things that can be harmful to a child without the child thinking about it. Although spyware is a GREAT idea, don’t completely invade their privacy because they will get antsy and may resort to extreme measures to get around their parents' surveillance. Most teenagers find their time of seclusion when they are on their phones.
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.
There is no way to stop someone from experiencing life and at some point, they will lose their innocence. J.D. Salinger’s story in The Catcher in the Rye is widely read and studied because it demonstrates a character that invokes relatable feelings of regret of maturing or feelings that the world isn’t as wonderful as you’re led to believe as a kid. You relate to wanting to protect yourself from these things or, as someone who has matured to wanting to protect those you are guardian
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.
Communication is the best defense against situations like these when it comes to your kids. Try anything within your power as a parent to prevent your kids from abusing alcohol. Let them know the dangers of alcoholism and the shame and hurt it can convey upon loved
