    Is it good to scold children?

    Some parents don't scold their kids and some do scold. What is actually good for children? I need the reasons for the answer.

    There are a lot of factors to consider.  It is not good to allow children to misbehave without being told (or scolded) for doing so. Scolding can be a learning experience if the parent does it without demeaning the chid.

    The parent needs to point out the wrong behavior  and let the child know why it is wrong and why they cannot do it. It can be done in a loving manner without berating the child.

    So is it good to scold children? I would say not good, but often necessary and to the child's benefit.  That is how kids learn what is right and wrong behavior, and what is acceptable within the family.

    It is good to discipline children with love. It is vital they get a smack on their bum when necessary, but not done in anger, but in love.

    Children need the security of boundaries. You will notice that many children gravitate towards a person who is stern, because they feel secure with them.
