Some parents threaten to spank their child so the child stops misbehaving immediately because the child does not want to get hit. As an effective temporary solution, parents spank their child to stop the child’s uncontrollable behavior in the moment of the parent doing something. When the child is spanked it shocks the child which then lets the child calm down resulting to letting the parent take a breather. Therefore, spanking does not teach obedience to the child but teaches the child to fear the parent. The child then starts to disrespect his/her parents when the child becomes older because they had no respect for the parent but rather had a fear when younger.
Although it can seem very practical the moment it is given, it does not improve the child’s behavior and can bring serious effects on the long run. Parents ought to prevent themselves from spanking their children for it can lead to long-term effects to the child such as anti-social behavior and cognitive development. To begin, spanking is seen as an innocent form of physical discipline. However, parents are not aware that spanking contributes to anti-social behavior such as aggressive and violent behavior of children. Children spanked repeatedly become accustomed and learn to believe it is an acceptable behavior, “…spanking sets a bad example, teaching children that aggressive behavior is a solution to their parents' problems” (Park1).
Being physically aggressive by spanking your child leads them to be physically aggressive as well. According to the Pediatrics Journal, spanking 3-y... ... middle of paper ... ...ture, and second, in the parent’s eyes, must be increased in order to continue to be effective. This can possibly lead to child abuse because the parent won’t understand how violent they are being toward their child because the child will not react the same to spanking after time as it did the first time it was spanked. There are detrimental risks and disadvantages to using spanking children as a form of punishment. Children will never actually learn the reasoning for why they are being spanked.
Simply reasoning and taking things away from them such as their privileges will not work with young children because they are not at the age range where they can fully understand. Merely taking away a child’s privileges or toys will only cause them to behave when they want something. When children learn to live without the privileges their parents are holding them hostage to, they will eventually stop listening and obeying them. Spanking allows children an opportunity to learn and change because they will discover that any negative behavior that they do will always have repercussions. When they are spanked, they will know not to ever repeat the action again.
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.
﻿“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.
Hitting also promotes anger- in children and in parents. Parents often tend to react more harshly and spank harder while they are caught in an angry moment. Parents who give themselves time to calm do... ... middle of paper ... ...important that we teach our children a system of values, and the difference between right and wrong. Where do we draw the line when it comes to disciplining our children? Spanking isn't necessarily something a parent consciously chooses.
Why treat one with violence, which will eventually lead to one maneuvering their way when treating his parents to avoid the violence against him or her. Not only that, but also one will also use violence against his parents when one grows up to protect oneself from their parents’ violence. Parents Violence against children lead to many negative effects in their children’s life and even leads to crimes. People might think that violence discipline the kids and prevent them from arguing with their parents and following their orders without even asking. I agree that it does discipline the kids only when they are young but as they start to grow up it all turns upon the parents who should have known that a turning point in his or her life would come where they treat their parents the same way they treated him when he or she was young.
There is much controversy over the correct disciplinary actions for kids. If parents discipline their kids too little, they could turn out to be spoiled and entitled, but if they discipline them too much, the kids could become rebellious and act out more often. Experts do not have a specific answer as to which strategy is most effective when teaching a child right from wrong. Although, new studies have shown that numerous parents are very unknowledgable about how quickly their child develops, which can lead to disciplinary problems. In Belinda Luscombe’s article “Most Parents Who Spank Their Kids Say it Doesn’t Work” from June 8, 2016 Time Magazine, the author effectively uses logos for its appeal to reason, and pathos to further convey the information across as to why parents
In the article, a father named Peterson got arrested because he was trying to spank his daughter. Peterson’s lawyer indicates that Peterson was spanking his daughter for good, but psychiatrist Elliott Barker points out that parents should not use physical punishment because parents are the closest and the most related people to the children. Physical punishment can cause children to lose their trust in parents, and also it can causes family violence for next generations because children are not mature enough to understand the circumstance for physical punishment. Therefore, I agree that by not giving children the correct discipline, parent will cause more negative effects for the children in the future. Even though many of the parents claimed that reasonable and responsible disciplines can be recognized as a good way to take care of a child.
