Discipline is Not Abuse - Many people today are getting arrested for simply disciplining a child. But, in older times disciplining a child set good moral standards and taught that child on what that child was supposed to do and what not to do. There is a fine line between abuse and discipline. So what is child abuse. Child abuse consists of any act of commission or omission that endangers or impairs a child’s physical or emotional health and development. Child abuse includes any damage done to a child which cannot be reasonably explained and which is often represented by an injury or series of injuries appearing to be non-accidental in nature....   [tags: Moral Standards, Child Abuse, Discipline]

Discipline that Encourages Moral Behavior - I think as parent's we have all wondered what types of discipline can encourage moral behavior, and what types of discipline should we avoid. One of the most powerful types of discipline that can foster moral development is inductive discipline. Inductive discipline is a way you can teach a child to consider others feelings. For example, if your child is playing at the park and they hit another child what do you do. A powerful tool to use is talk to your child about the event of hitting another child and then help them to see how what they done hurt the other child's feelings....   [tags: Child Discipline] 961 words

Conflict and Resolution in Herbert's Discipline - Conflict and Resolution in Herbert's Discipline       George Herbert’s struggle to be humble enough to fully accept God’s undying love can be located within each of his poems. The way in which Herbert conveys this conflict is by utilizing structure as well as metaphysical techniques. This combination of literary devices creates a physical reality that allows Herbert, or the poetic speaker, to “make his feelings immediately present” (245). These devices, at first, appear to be artificial and contradictory to the poet’s goal of making God’s word visible....   [tags: discipline] 1286 words

Physical Discipline with Children - ... Dr. Robert E. Larzelere conducted a spanking study in 1996, where he studied data from 166 spanking studies. After carefully studying the research, he was unable to find any convincing evidence that non-abusive spanking caused any damage to children (Larzelere). Likewise, Diana Baumrind and Elizabeth Owen, from the University of California at Berkeley came to the same conclusion. Baumrind and Owens studied data from 100 families over a twelve year period. The children of the families were interviewed and observed by two teams of psychologists at the ages of 4, 9, and 14....   [tags: spanking, parenting, discipline]

Discipline in the 80's Classroom - Growing up as child of the 80's and early 90's, if I went to school and received a paddling or spanking for doing something wrong, I was quite aware of, or at least had the knowledge of the bad behavior that was disregarded and the consequences of my inappropriate action.

Forms of Discipline: Punishment is too Aggressive - ... Children that have been victims to spanking may feel devalued, their self-worth gone, and turn to lying to avoid spankings (Rochman). Several studies have proven that the more often a parent strikes at a child, the more likely the chance of the child striking back (Ogilvie). Unfortunately, spanking is a never-ending cycle in the case that parents who have been disciplined in this way when they were kids find that spanking is the only way of punishing (Rochman). Unsurprisingly, out of over eighty different studies conducted on the effects of physical punishment, not one has come back with results that show any positive associations to this form of discipline (Rochman)....   [tags: punishments, discipline, spanking]

A Parent Should Consider Other Means of Discipline Than Spanking Their Child - Whenever a parent disciplines (means of correcting) a child, they are teaching them, and letting them know there are boundaries in life.
