Parents who abuse their kids were abused and had a poor upbringing. Nowadays with technology and researches found, they could help change and also teach their kids to avoid the same mistakes when they grow up. As the child grows, parents can set limits instead of violence. Fact is that when kids behave out of the normal, it is not to make parents angry but because they are in need of attention. We all know that parents’ the first reaction is to lose it, so instead of punching, parents can try time outs until the child comprehends why he or she is being punished.
All parents should have knowledge about the harms caused by the physical punishment. A child who is physically punished without being told why, may develop less self-respect and have weak personality and this can make it difficult for him to adjust socially in school and with his friends. Parents have to change some of their beliefs and ideas about how children should be raised. It is possible to avoid the use of physical force in the home and schools, and doing so will help us move closer to remove violence from our society. Protection of children’s rights will ensure a better generation to live in a peaceful society.

This theory goes on to state that parenting is the most important factor in determining a person’s self-control. According to the theory a person will have low self-control in the future if they have an unsupervised neglectful and abusive upbringing. Due to this, they could be prone to be impulsive, risk taking, non-verbal and tend to engage in crime throughout their lives. High self-control is taught at a young age by parents who supervise and spend the needed time with their kids. Parents teach their kids by punishing them for misconduct and they eventually develop the self-control needed which allows them to resist the temptations of crime.

I believe that parents should not spank their children because it is not only an incorrect way to punish their children, but because spanking can bring psychological damage to the child. Spanking is sometimes seen as a trend that parents want to follow from generation to generation. For instance, current parents were spanked when they were young and they often tend to feel that if they turned out to be great people, their child would be well-disciplined if they are spanked. As a matter of fact, parents don’t actually realize the type of damage that their parents left them after constant brutal punishment. According to the article, “Myths and Facts: Spanking”, “There will be lasting effects to this type of discipline, how you react to others, and definitely in how you may parent your own children”.
