Unfortunately today, there are still many people who believe that corporal punishment is still effective for children to learn life lessons and above all, they think. That they are adequate to be able to eliminate negative behaviors. They think that a child will be able to stop hitting , hitting him … Without falling into the thought that what they are teaching him is that violence is correct when we get angry … Does it make sense? Not much.
Corporal punishment occurs in homes or schools when an adult tries to stop unwanted behavior by causing the child to feel physical discomfort or pain. Corporal punishment includes: spanking, pinching, slapping, punching, throwing things, spanking with a belt, ropes, or any other object.
For many families, corporal punishment is a form of parenting where it does not count as child abuse … and depending on the part of the world you are in, it may not be a crime to pull your child’s ears, attack him with sauce itchy tongue, locking him in a room for hours, not allowing him to go to the bathroom or being bruised with objects. But in reality, all this violates the rights of children and is child abuse, and abuse … is a crime and is punishable by law.
In recent years, international human rights agencies have been pushing for stricter laws around the world to prevent children from being subjected to undue violence, in any form. As early as 1989, at the Convention on the Rights of the Child at the United Nations, countries around the world came together to “take all appropriate legislative, administrative, social and educational measures to protect children from all forms of physical violence. or mental, injury or abuse, neglect or negligent treatment, mistreatment or exploitation “.
CORPORAL PUNISHMENT IS NEVER JUSTIFIABLE
The use of corporal punishment will never be a justifiable act in any way when a person is caring for a child, of any age. Many adopted children have experienced abuse and neglect in their providential homes and have great emotional problems because of it.
Abuse sometimes leaves a child with a high tolerance for pain. A frustrated caregiver may start by spanking a child, but when they don’t get the response they seek from the child, they begin to hit harder and harder. Additionally, corporal punishment can also bring back bad memories of past abuse or prevent a child from developing a bond with adoptive or biological parents.
Many child behavior psychologists believe that necessary life lessons are not taught when painful and tense discipline, corporal punishment often leaves the child with increased anxiety and an inability to trust parental figures, or anyone else’s. adult.
There are parents and adults who, when they were little, may have been spanked and believe that ‘they have turned out well’, but in reality they put aside the negative feelings, the emotional wounds and all the suffering experienced before.
In reality, the whipping or any type of violence is necessary for the education of the children. Neither psychological violence, nor physical violence … and also violate the rights and dignity of children and is a crime.
Corporal punishment should never be used. If you usually use this type of action against your children to try to ‘educate’ them, then it will be necessary for you to go to a therapist or an educational and psychology professional to give you the necessary guidelines so that you understand your emotions and then so that you understand which one. it is the best kind of education that your children deserve and need. When you have the right strategies for a good positive education, you will feel more secure in parenting and therefore require less violence of any kind.
