With the well-being and moral internalization of these children as the top priority, many people have spoken against this practice and a few governments outlawing it. Nonetheless, the fight to ban domestic corporal punishment is not over on the grounds of which it can lead to abuse, is an ineffective form of correctional education and inhibits child development. Although parents justify themselves by stating that they do not intend to injure their children, there is a tendency for corporal punishment to escalate into child abuse. This is because for the punishment to be effective at sending the message, the intensity and length of each punishment has to be increased over time. For instance, a four year old child may need only a light tap on the hand but a ten year old child may need to be caned to learn the same lesson.
﻿“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.
Government censorship is not the answer to solving this problem. Although, the opposition does have a valid point: children shouldn’t be allowed to purchase games that they are not old enough to understand on an emotional and mature level. This may seem reasonable, but that doesn’t negate the right of mature adults to be able to create or purchase what they want. Children need protection from mature themes but not with the help of government censorship because it ruins the artistic vision of the developers, it gives the government too much power, and it removes power and responsibilities from parents. Supporters of government censorship in regards to video games usually are doing so for what they deem to be noble causes.
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).
The parents are a key part in loosening the grip the media market has on young children. Not only are the media at fault for influencing children of today, the parents are also at fault for their encouragement of the media market. The market has a strong hold on children and is continually influencing them through many aspects of their lives. Parents need to encourage their children to not conform to whatever the media says. Kids do not need the newest items or hippest clothing in order to be successful.
There are three aspects of advertising used to help persuade consumers to buy their products, and are primarily influencing children. Three negative ways advertisers may expose children to this negative media are through humor and catchy slogans, celebrities, and self-image. “When advertising makes you smile or laugh, your brain chemistry changes to support your memory. It pairs happiness and good feelings with the brand,” says Doug Gentile who runs a Media Research Lab at Iowa State University in Ames.

While some are in favor of using vaccines to protect their children from disease, and other ailments, there are still many people who see vaccinations as a con, and a violation of their civil and human rights to choose what is best for their children. The cause is that people are not giving their children or themselves vaccinated. This leads to the effect that society who comes in contact with them risks their own health, weather knowingly or otherwise. The pros for getting vaccination, leads to a healthier and a safer society. However, people still feel that they possess the right to choose their own way of life, even when it comes to their health.
While the government put out regulations and protection acts as safeguards, it seems to have little effects on the advertisers. Marketers and advertisers utilize techniques that have a tendency to mislead and influence children into buying their products. These advertisements are having negative effects on children’s health, making them more materialistic and on occasions, prompting them to use violence to get what they want. These issues are raising concerns for parents, who want to put a stop in television advertisements. Yet, restricting television advertisements is a form of censorship, thus contradicting the First Amendment of the constitution.
