Education yes. Physical punishment of children no


The application of physical punishment does not have the same effect as imposing limits on children. Norms and rules can be learned in other ways. Standards are a necessary part of the educational process. Through them, behaviors and behaviors are regulated during childhood, as a way of facilitating the process of incorporation of the child into the world of adults.

One of the goals of the standards is to allow children to own them through a critical process. In this way physical punishment is once again ineffective. By not allowing reasoning, by being at odds with dialogue, by being sustained by the difference of forces between adult and child, physical punishment does not teach to be independent and autonomous.

Physical punishment forces blind obedience, forces submission, and forces dependence. Teaching standards does not imply physical punishment. Instruction and dialogue must be the norm in family relationships. They mark the differences with respect to authoritarian discipline. Here you can find out why:

- The rules are based on reasoning between parents and children.
- The application of the rules must be reasoned by the parents in the most understandable way for the children.
- The actions must be educational.
- The reasons given must be for the common good of children and adults.
- Parents and children will be willing to change and adapt the rules if they consider it appropriate.
- In decision making, the opinion of children must be respected and taken into account
- Decisions must have a minimum stability to facilitate family life.
- Parents must make the final decision, fulfilling their protective and educating role.
- The ability to anticipate the consequences of their actions, and to respond to the responsibilities of their actions, should be fostered in both parents and children.

Standards are important, but the context and situations in which learning occurs deserves a highlight. Necessary:
1- Get to know the children, be with them, value them without idealizing them.
2- Cultivate and show affection, always.
3- Share your time with the children.
4- The example of parents is very important in the learning process of children.
5- Encourage the active participation of children in the family.
6- Establish clear, coherent and consistent limits, together with the boy or girl, depending on their ability and responsibility.
7- It will be necessary to apply less limits when a safe physical environment is provided for the child. 8- Provide an environment rich in possibilities of all kinds.

It is a process that aims to train the person, teach them to live and coexist, and is based on acquiring knowledge, developing values, actively participating in the community, acquiring their own criteria, decisions and behaviors, and expressing and recognizing emotions. Education is one of the main tasks that every society has.

Parents should be role models, the first and main educational figures, although they are not the only ones. There must be the participation of other family members, the school, the media, etc. For this, it is necessary to share time with the children, respect their identity, encourage their integration, be consistent in the example, and enable experiences for the children.
