ON CHILDREN‘S DAY–A CHILD‘S ISSUE
Hello my Dear Readers,
As we all know today is 14th of November– ‘Children‘s Day, so I write this very special post for all the kids, their parents and also their teachers. Children’s Day is a occasion which is celebrated in almost all the schools. It is a very joyful day for all the kids as on this day they are sure of one thing that they will not be beaten by their teachers.
On this children’s day, I would like to bring into limelight a very serious issue which is often overlooked in our society. Yes, I am talking about beating up children, It’s results, Its consequences and how far is it okay to beat them. I shall discuss these issues below—-
1. Why are they beaten– Children are often beaten up by their parents or teachers because they think that it is a way to impart discipline in them.
2. Is it okay to beat little kids– No, absolutely not. Infact, it is like a sin. Children are the most innocent. They tend to make mistakes. We need to correct them by making them understand and not beating them up!
3. Its results– Beating can become a part of children’s upbringing. They will grow up becoming rowdy, rebellious and aggressive and might consider beating as the correct way of controlling someone. Later, the male child might end up beating his wife, which might result into domestic violence because this is what he has been indirectly taught as a child.
3. It‘s consequences – Beating up a child might lower his self–esteem and potential. A child might inculcate feelings of hopelessness, fear, anxiety etc. It can have devastating effects on the psychological sphere of a child especially if the child is introvert or not vocal enough to share his/her problems with others. Such kids often grow up in an unhealthy state of mind and sometimes indulge in activities like suicide, drugs, alcohol etc…
Conclusion– At home, parents must not raise their hands on a child. It is a part of healthy parenting and at school teachers must understand that beating up a child won’t help him get good grades, it will only make them scared of the subject.
