Raising children properly is the biggest responsibility a human can ever have. As the creator of the future inhabitants of earth, it is important to make sure they adopt the proper values and are set on the right path. However, sometimes the methods by which we get to this can be quite harrowing. For instance, take corporal punishment. While corporal punishment has some pros, some people might only see the cons.
Some people think of corporal punishment as the best way to establish the upper hand in the relationship with non-obedient children, while others might see it as a cruel way to make an unsuspecting child suffer. There is a difference between corporal punishment to correct behavior, and straight out beating your child. The bottom line is that the pros and cons of corporal punishment walk a thin line between one another. Light corporal punishment can help keep a child in line. Think of it as a tool to guide your child in the right direction.— edubook.com
