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.

  • Nice descriptive manner

    As beating is a way to make a children disciplined. It will really helpful for teachers to make a students way a good way. So, According to me it is a good way to make students a nice citizen and a nice person in the life.

  • Beating children leaves them a black mark which they never forget

    A child at a very young age likes to play, its an age where everything is new to them, where he/she is discovering new aspects of life. If just from the beginning a child is beaten by a teacher just because he/she doesn't understand a concept while studying or because of misbehaving than I am sorry you have failed to become a teacher. The basic definition of a teacher is "A teacher is a person who helps others to acquire knowledge, competences or values". Basically teacher is a person who transfer knowledge to students, who teaches them a broader idea of the subject. Now where it's written that transferring knowledge specifically requires beating an individual. If some student is misbehaving or is unable to learn anything so use the art of teaching it self, tell them the bad consequences that will lead to them in future if they perform this act, you can detain them for a short period of time, may be expel them if things go out of hand but beating is the worst solution what so ever. Physical abuse only causes stress, sadness and temptations for children to cause suicide & use drugs. Students spend most of there days in school, they see teachers as their motivators, their mentors, their gateway to become a better person. We are living in 21st century where the greatest leaders of our generation & innovators used their skills of diplomacy and their will power to bring new ideas to change people. To change a heart of a person requires them to show a good example, a leading example where they will follow you. The other side of the "YES" party argue that kids get on my nerves and kids below 18 should be spanked. Get on your nerves? Seriously sir/madam what are you even paid for as a teacher, a teacher is a person who has a back ground knowledge of what he has to do before he enters a class room, if you can't control children by words than you immediately have to be spanked. You yourself are teachers and read books, first of all read the basic amendments of human right charter, read each articles and understand what does it say.
    If a teacher is beating his children for me, he should be jailed for physical abuse or sacked from his job all around the globe.

  • It is wrong

    No non nonono nononnon non on no no non no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no n o n o n o n o no no no no no no no no no no it is very mean

  • No no no

  • 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.

  • Stop beating!

    I think every school must not beat. As I am a student I never get beaten in my whole life. If you saw any teachers beat students just take a photo of that and show it to everyone or post it then the teacher will stop it. I hope there is no beating

  • No, science is unanimous that it is a terrible "parenting tool"

    Science agrees overwhelmingly that violence is a damaging and ineffective discipline for the long term. If you raise your hand with the intention of inflicting pain, it is violence, this includes spanking. Science proves there are better methods. To disagree with such overwhelming research makes you equivalent to anti-vaxxers on this subject. You can disagree with facts.

    For that matter, it shocks me that children are so poorly protected when it comes to violence. If you are wronged and you hit a romantic partner, it's domestic violence, if you hit someone at work, it's workplace abuse, if you hit a stranger it's assault, hell if you hit a dog for disobeying you're likely to be condemned as an animal abuser. When it comes to children, it's merely "discipline".

    Permissibility only goes in one direction. Acceptable corporal punishment ranges very far depending on who you ask. You may think belt whipping is child abuse but many people don't think so. You may think leaving welts and bruises is child abuse but many still think it's just good discipline. If there is no line to agree upon, and science is clear about the harmful effects then do not add to the permissibility of the act. Let's just have a hard "NO" once and for all and actually educate yourself on better methods.

    For that matter, if you hurt a child who has no say in their relationship, who is still learning to control and express their emotions and impulses, who has very little protection from the outside (less than a dog apparently), and you won't try nonviolent methods despite the landslide of psychological information we now have, you are not a great parent. If you and accept raising your hand and hurting anyone, and you think they just deserve it, even a child a tenth your size, well aside from the landslide of facts we have on the subject... That just doesn't sit well in my heart. It's sad. You need to try harder, and be a better person and a better parent.

  • No never and no

    It sickens me that 38% could support something so wrong. Corporal punishment is proven to lead to worse. It also creates sneakier kids at best and morally destroyed kids at worst. I remember i was in 2nd or 3rd grade and the other guys for whatever reason created a "punch eachother in the nuts at lunch" thing. One day randomly i(at such a young age) get approached by the teachers and blamed for everything. I was definitely not old enough to defend myself and explain it was their idea. I lost all recess and had this big board thing around my desk all day. It wasn't corporal but if i had a soul it was torn apart shredded and burned by it. At home my parents took all my toys because of it even though i wan't old enough to defend myself because they only got the teacher perspective. All because others lied....It's been proven through research that corporal punishment messes up kids even worse than that. Also, who's to draw the line here? Beating someone to an inch of their life could be interpreted as ok under this. How many people could truthfully be patient all the time with a young child or special needs child? BTW that's another reason i shouldn't have been destroyed by the system: my light autism would have made any argument power i had even less effective(and makes me forget stuff all the time very fast very easily). It's been found that like attracts like in kids; from substance abuse to physical abuse. More violence especially against the most innocent and often best parts of ourselves is not, never has been, and never will be the answer.
