“I am totally against beating a child & research has proved that beating damages children & breeds them into Violent Adults!

Parents should Recognise & Respect children’s feelings! Teach their children how to manage conflicts & Negative feelings without Violence!! Violence is learned Behavior! Pinker 202:178, 308.

Children that grow up with Physical punishments as the norm also take out their frustrations on others …The brain reacts to environmental challenges in various conscious ways/actions, levels of Norepinephrine & Dopamine often rise to produce a type of Aggression. Coercive Parenting is Wrong!!!

Parents that beat haven’t learnt to Regulate their own feelings & use appropriate strategies!! Beating a child incubates Aggression & conduct disorder, Depression, lack of confidence, drug addiction, hostile & lack of good communication skills!!

A child that is trained through violence will always use violence to communicate because they don’t how else to manage conflict!! The more physical & verbal abuse a child gets. The more they expect it, the more they Rebel & become Defiant… Aggressive behaviour is the result of CHRONIC MISTREATMENT, McBurnett et al.2000. plsstayhome #staysafeeveryone
