Although I believe that doing this is teaching them a lesson, the only lesson they would learn is not to do that thing when you're around, as all it does is make them fear doing that thing, because they do not want to get spanked. Whether this is right or not depends. It depends about the cause. If you do this, because they did something wrong, then they wouldn't learn the lesson that it is wrong, but rather they are scared of it, so has not real positive effect. Whereas, if you spank them, because they did something dangerous, then it could someday save their life, as they may not do the dangerous thing, because they are scared and therefore, not get the consequences that they would have got, if they were not scared of being spanked if they did that thing.
Yes it is a good lesson to teach your child today and in the past or the future. If you don"t spank your kid they will just do it again and again and again over and over . KIDS DO NOT LEARN IF THEY DO NOT GET SPANKED. Thanks you
(sorry for my shitty grammar)
Kids get spanked when they do something wrong. After they get spanked, they will stop doing that thing not because they know it is wrong, but because they are afraid of being hit again.
They are kids. They don’t fully understand what is right and wrong. We need to teach them by talking to them. Repeat offenders can just get grounded.
- less detailed argument
People get mad when owners hit their puppies that misbehave, why do they think differently with super young clueless children?
