With out corporal punishment a man cant be made
it should be there but should not cross the limit
No corporal punishment should be there...
gold, what source do you have that shows corporal punishment has decreased since the 1950s? None that I've found... the only statistics I found on the matter is that using violence against children teaches them that violence is the solution, which isn't hard to figure out.
ask yourself this, have children gotten more or less respectful since the 1950's or so? btw that is back far enough when most parents spanked their kids. I am not advocating abuse, but there is an almost magic change in attitude when a spank is applied in good correction and love. discipline in any form must be done out of love
Ask yourself this, were you spanked as a child. If so, did you turn out OK? If you don't think you did, ask yourself this, is it your parents fault for punishing you as a child, or is it your own fault for putting yourself where you are now?
It was effective for my parents haha but I think that... a parent should not have to use corporal punishment if they have done a good job as parents. But if the child is continuously causing problems on purpose, corporal punishment can be an effective tactic in that it gives the child something to fear if they do this again. That is not to say that children should be raised in fear, which is what corporal punishment can potentially lead to if used irresponsibly. But it can be effective if used appropriately :)
