Should the beating of children at school and home be allowed?

  • Beatings in school, no. Beating at home, yes!

    Beatings should definitely be part of disciplinary action in any home. I consider beating to be a severe punishment, children shouldn't be often beat. If they do something really bad, though, give them a few good slaps and that'll make sure a child doesn't repeat the mistake. Reward good behavior appropriately, but bad behavior always calls for a slap or two. Verbal encouragement or discouragement is never good; children will find ways to exploit that and soon they will be the masters of the household, and not the parents.

    At school, however, beatings should not be allowed. The way a child behaves is influenced by those closest to him, namely friends and family. Mostly family. If a child does not behave appropriately at school, then it is the parents' responsibility of his bad behavior, and not the school.

  • Beating Is OK.

    Beatings should be done in moderation. If your child is being a brat, you need to beat them up a little to make them learn their lesson. A time out isn't going to do squat. In this age and time, we are too kind to children. If you are giving your child 2nd place medals, you should reconsider and beat them for being second.

  • This debate title is worded incorrectly.

    Many people think that this is a bad thing. Spanking your child's behind is much different than beating them. Most people tend to think that they are the same, but they are sorely mistaken. I believe that if a child is absurdly insubordinate and/or disrespectful they should receive a spanking regardless of being at home or school. Then you would reward good behavior teaching the child what is right from wrong. This generation of parents want to be friends (doormats) for their child, when they need to be PARENTS. Punish your child and make sure they don't do the bad thing again. None of this participation trophy stuff, either you do it right or you get nothing. That's how the whole world of reality works, so instill this in them young.

  • It is wrong

  • Damn it all to hell!

    Go back to school and get some education in civility. There's no room for violence in any modern developed nation. Want some brutality, regimentation and inadequate care in your old age? Join the army or a BDSM circle.

    And, for crying out loud, don't have kids! We need more divergent thinking in society not less. Masters of a household? Pah! More like slaves of the mundane clawing at the misery of their unfulfilled lives.

  • Of Course Not!

    Beating children can cause trauma, and a resentment for the beater, which may cause them to act up even more! There are more humane ways to reprimand children a beating kids just isn't ok. Children need discipline, not corporal punishment. Some kids have also been very seriously hurt or even killed from beatings inflicted, so do not, beat children for a punishment.
