Is Smacking Right For Children?

In a country like Pakistan, parents use smacking as one of the ways to either control or teach their children. But it is often asked that is smacking the right way to do it? According to science and psychology, smacking does more harm than good to children.

If you are smacking your child from a very early age, you are actually making him quite likely to have some of the deepest psychological problems. Like adult human beings, children also have personalities. Two kids from same biological parents may have entirely different personalities. Some kids are shy while others are bold and naughty. However, smacking is not the way to teach children the difference between mischief and misbehavior.

As a parent you should always be ready to accept the fact that your kid can have a different personality. He may not be quiet or shy like other children in the house, class or neighborhood. Smacking children often make them have personality crisis. Making a naughty child become shy or reserve by smacking will eventually make him have dual personalities.

Furthermore, the more you will use physical language to calm your kids down, the more they will become rebellious towards you. They will never accept the idea of loving you as a person rather than as a kin. If a child is misbehaving, smacking will make him even more aggressive. Other than smacking, there are other effective ways to deal with children in their growing years, which you should try.
