Why not beat?
One of the most acute social problems currently in the focus of public attention is the problem of domestic violence. In many families, children suffer from unjustifiably abusive treatment by adults. The attitude towards the assault as a measure of punishment of disobedient children in society is twofold. In this article, we will explain why children should not be beaten and what negative consequences this may have.
The following are the main reasons why you should not use physical effects on the child.
You show your weakness and lose respect in the eyes of a child.
When you raise a hand against a child, you thereby demonstrate your inconsistency as an educator and psychologist. The desire to resolve all issues through coarse, violent methods has always been considered a sign of anything but the greatest mind. If you cannot force a child to do what you want from him without raising a hand to him - it means that you have turned out to be a bad teacher. Anyone can hit a child.This is the easiest and fastest way to get him to do something. However, respect and obedience from him you will not achieve such methods.
You can injure your child.
It is about both physical and psychological trauma. Children's body is easily vulnerable. Even a smack in your opinion can lead to serious and irreversible consequences. Due to the second rush, your child for life may remain crippled. Can you forgive yourself for this later? In addition, if you often raise your hand to your child, you risk forming a lot of complexes and mental problems in him. Children who are often beaten at home, withdraw into themselves. Subsequently, it becomes difficult for them to interact with the outside world and build normal social relations.
This measure of impact soon becomes ineffective.
Another reason why the child should not be beaten is the fact that he will soon stop responding to such punishment. People tend to get used to and adapt to the phenomena surrounding reality. If you often raise your hand to your child, for him this behavior will soon become a matter of habit.The realization that he cannot be avoided in any way will lead to the fact that as a result he will flatly refuse to do what he is told, even under the threat of physical violence.
The child will compensate children's fears for others and for you when he grows up.
When children grow up in an atmosphere of constant stress, aggression and violence, as adults, they begin to perceive this pattern of behavior as the norm. This threatens that they, too, will despotically treat their family members and their own children. You also do not have to rely on a calm, serene old age. Child grievances are hard to forget. Perhaps when your children grow up and become masters of the situation, they will want to recoup for everything.
