People time. In other cases physical punishment scars
People a few years ago,thought of the only way to punish someone who did asinister deed was to use corporal punishment.This is meant to enforce pain tosomeone who has done wrong by hitting them,beating them,strapping them or evenwhipping them.These are only a few examples of corporal punishment.Why do we have corporal punishment,How do we benefit from it and how do weabuse it?.
The most obvious reason for corporal punishment is to castigate one fordoing wrong by means of physical abuse expecting the individual to learn fromhis or her mistake.But we must ask ourselves this question.Is the personbenefiting from this or is he or she not only being physically abused butmentally.In some cases corporal punishment psychologically effects ones mind ona long term bases that will stain their memory for a very long period of time.
In other cases physical punishment scars and stains the body changing itsphysical appearance but only on a small scale.Corporal punishment is also usedbecause it is quick and in most cases effective.The mental condition of theperson being affected may worsen not only resulting to utter madness but mayalso result in lack of moral strength.
Most people nowadays feel that corporalpunishment is not the best answer to enforce restrictions in society as theyfeel,that pain is not the best solution.Although Corporal punishment has its disadvantages it can also make peopleaware of the fact that wrong doing results in pain and agony.As more people knowthe effect of misbehaving,the fewer the mistakes there would be.Michael Fae forexample, used a paint canister to spray paint on cars for fun.The result forthis action was to be strapped four times on the back.Now he realizes what hehas to face if he were to do it again.In the past,corporal punishment was used very often especially inschools.
Now corporal punishment is banned from most of the schools around theworld because a lot of the people who administer it abuse it.Legal problems thenarises.Parents have been known to sue the schools for beating their child tooseverely.They abuse corporal punishment when using it in excess and when it isnot neccessary.Because of the abusement the parents feel they have the right totake action against the person who administers the punishment.
My conclusion is that there are a lot of other ways to teach someone whatis wrong but corporal punishment is definitely not one of them. Category: English
