Reincarnation of oneself into a confident and self-dependent personality. Creating introverts and pessimists isn’t self-discipline. Instilling positivity in kids should be a major part of discipline.

One must pace up the act of disciplining as per the child’s grasping capabilities. All cannot master everything. These kids are small moons and stars. They will shine when their time comes. Stop bothering them for the sake of your show off and ego.

Try to deal with the smarter generation smartly and with elegance. Be mature enough to give them a chance to say a word. They might have a different perspective.

Negative Impacts Of Punishment ( Physical And Mental)

Innocent little beings hold their teachers and parents as their role models. Hence, it’s your responsiveness towards different situations that influence them and boost their attitudes either positively or negatively. Physical and mental torture or abuse may damage their mental and social growth. Being violent at times may make them learn the same for no purpose.

  • Psychological traumas for life can be the prior effect of punishment.
  • Punishment or violence may hamper parent and child relations.
  • Aggressive and violent behaviour of the children is often seen in such cases.
  • A feeling of isolation and hatred may be instilled that may give birth to a pessimistic approach.
