These students face a litany of punishments from paddling, to padded rooms, to electroshock therapy. This is often administered by unprofessionals who are more likely to harm the children than to help them, despite the fact that these are people students should be able to trust and look up to.
A child's behavior is seen by his or her outward actions, seeking attention from surrounding individuals causing chaos due to insecurities. The behavior of a corporal punished child establishes self-harm. Corporal punishment produces a child to create pain upon his or her body, leaving scars for life.

As adults, children who have experienced child abuse suffer long-term consequences physically and mentally, which can cause them to have more chances of abusing their own children; therefore there should be more ways to help children and adults cope with their devastating childhoods so that their children wont have to go through the same thing growing up (Mersch). A lot of different things can be the cause of child abuse, but the main reason is poverty. Poverty causes a lot of people to lose jobs and stress out.

Many parents, in every culture, use child abuse as a method of conditioning their children to behave well. They use severe negative reinforcement too punish their children. These parents only see the immediate effects of child abuse. Naturally, if a child is beaten for doing something wrong, they will learn not to do it again.

Another affect that divorce has on children is that it makes the child more likely to have troubles staying in long term relationships (Wallerstein, 1989). Young children especially, are unable to cope with the stress and drama of divorce and custody battles, leaving these children who experience divorce first hand, affected the worst (Whitehead.1998).
