As for others, spanking is wrong because these parents think there can be a future problems from the effect of spanking. Spanking children can lead to emotional, mental and even physical problem as they grow up because the later effects of spanking and abuse caused by the disciplinary action of spanking. While I am against spanking a child, I understand that spanking a child can discipline him/her. Parents control the correction of their children; every parent knows how to make their child listen to them. Some parents threaten to spank their child so the child stops misbehaving immediately because the child does not want to get hit.
Parents who are physically abusive may believe that their children need to fear them in order to behave, so they use physical abuse to keep their child in line. However, what children are really learning is how to avoid being hit, not how to behave or grow as individuals, (Child Abuse and Neglect Recognizing and Preventing Child Abuse). Parents may think that by beating a child they are managing the child’s behavior. They are wrong. If they think what their parents did to them worked, they are wrong.
Hitting your child, is teaching them that it is okay to become violent when you’re mad, which is not a good lesson to learn. Also, it could result in your child, bringing these lessons to their own children, and maybe even reflect it on their spouse. Why is it seen as correct, to hit a child for hitting someone else? The irony is that you’re doing wrong, just as they are. You need to teach children, that violence is not the correct way to go about things, so they spread that to everyone around them.
﻿“Can parenting or child rearing be non-punitive?” Is one of the most common questions that parents ask. If spanking is so effective, why do most people have such an uneasy feeling about it? Some how we cannot silence our inner doubts about the long term effects of physical punishment. We are a little embarrassed by the use of force and we keep saying to ourselves, “”here ought to be a better way of rearing children.” Another reason is, within ourselves, no one wants to be hit. While hitting releases anger and frustration, and might work in the short-term, what parents really want is for children to be self controlled and disciplined.
If a child is chastised by smacking in a loving environment where the majority of the time the child is shown that they are valued and loved then the occasional smack will not harm their development. Neither smacking an adult is never acceptable, so nor should hitting a child be. Research has confirmed that smacking children teaches them to use acts of aggression and ferocity to solve their problems. It is wrong to teach children that problems can only be solved using violence, parents should portray their children that dispute can be solved without violence in a positive way as well. As we all know that children are more likely to follow their parent’s actions (Alderson, 2008).
Hopson. Corporal punishment, especially when applied to children of a young age, can cause a child to develop a fearful reaction towards the caregiver. Adolescents should feel safe when in the presence of their guardians. However due to this certain type of punishment, a number of youngsters have become afraid to even ask their caregiver a simple question. Karima Haynes testifies that corporal punishment is not effective with children because they only centralize themselves on the fact that they are getting spanked and not on the motive behind it.
The reason morality falls into play is because the child may feel that strict parenting is because the parents “hate” the child. Growing up, most children rebel against their authoritative parents while their brains are still developing.

Typically a parent would not endure in such actions, but it varies from parent to parent.
Parents are trying to teach their child a lesson but instead making them fearful. Children will be aggressive and think violence is the answer to everything. The point of spanking is to teach the child what they did was wrong but kids don 't get that message when they get physically abused. It teaches them the wrong lesson and they think that it 's okay to spank kids so when they get older they will probably do the same thing. Corporal punishment of a child by a caregiver is legal in every state, but it crosses the line to abuse when a child is injured.
