I believed that giving corporal punishment to your child will only lead him to become rebellious. Because giving them punishment will only trigger them to become rebellious. And parents should avoid being so strict to their children because you're just provoking them to build anger from you. Besides, allow them to commit mistakes. Because it's part of growing up and learning process. And as a parent, be tolerable enough. :)

I agree, I was given corporal punishment as a child and it made me hate those that inflicted the same, with an anger so intense it took me years to overcome it. Physical punishment is not even necessary for dogs, how much less so then for children. Children learn as they are taught, if you show them violence they learn violence and damaged people, damage people all the best, urban

Thanks for posting this discussion. Well i totally agree to your point. Corporal punishment all i have already discussed in my earlier discussion is not worthy at all. It might be a means of punishing a child for his mistakes for a temporary period but in the long run, he takes away many bitter and negative memories with him that puts an adverse impact on him. It would be wrong to say to allow children to do mistakes. Who does not make mistakes what is important is to be cautious all the time and take every step wisely. What say?

Yup can't agree more. Children today are very different and there are creative ways to discipline them when they get into trouble. But i'm firm believer that you still can't spare the rod when it comes to certain issues. hehe
