Corporal punishment of children: Is corporal punishment justifiable under religious doctrine?

  • No responses have been submitted.
  • It Is Child Abuse

    Spanking children is child abuse no matter what justification a parent uses. Some religious and cultural practices are universally wrong. Americans often condemn Muslim societies for genital mutilation in young girls. Corporal punishment is no different; it is beating your kids when there is always a better way to instill discipline.

  • Corporal punishment of children is not justifiable for any reason outside of a parent's control.

    I believe corporal punishment of children is not justifiable because it is not the right of any religious organization or institution for that matter to physically harm a child. Even if the intentions are good they do not justify the means. It is a parent's responsibility to decide how they choose to discipline children.
