Is it right to punish a child to learn discipline ?
this question is related to study the behavior of all the people regarding the concept of discipline
As a parent I try to only punish a child when they are being disrespectful. Now I only believe that punishment should only be doled out when warranted, not to teach before the child does something wrong. Communication is very important in disciplining a child especially as they get older. So to answer your question no unless the child does something to warrant it in the first place.
Respect and disrespect is the only only sense of time ..is it sure that the child will learn discipline from that ?
One is never sure of anything. as we are all individuals we learn things differently including discipline. as a child if I was told something once I generally did not do it again, as for my brother he was an entirely different story altogether.
thanks for reply ......in my personal view i feel if one will keep patience for child then he/she can teach every thing to child with love not in punishment....so here our patience is the main culprit which has to be punished .......not the child
One should come to expect their patience to be tested on a consistant basis as a parent. Now some children do not respond to the talking and "timeouts" and sometimes stripping a child of his/her privileges and having them do an extra chore or two wor
No it isn't right IF one is only attempting to teach a child about discipline. First the child has to know what they can and cannot do, then if they continue to break the rules, punishment may be in order - not physical punishment as I am anti-spanking but there are other ways to punish a child.
I would only spank my child if he gets out of hand. Scolding him may not work sometimes. Talking may do the trick but that is when he is not whimpering , whining or crying and making a fuss over small matter.
you are right but have u ever tried to resolve the problem of the child with a friendly manner?
yeah, i tried talking to him in a reasonable manner. Raising my voice doesn't work. Talking in a friendly manner will work if he hasn't start the whining, whimpering and crying. If those stuff started, nothing will stop him except spanking!
Punishment is a very small part of discipline. Parents must first address what the child needs before issuing any kind of punishment. I do believe that is punishment helps to mold the child to understand consequences to bad choices though. However, if the child has already "punished" himself though, there is no need for a parent to issue a second punishment.

My parents used to hit me as a child, but did that mean they were bad parents? I got smacked across the face and all over my body.

Would you spank your child? Do you think it is right or produces results? Do you approve of it?
