Violence In Children In Relation to Corporal Punishment It is common knowledge that children are easily influenced, especially during their early years from 1-2 years old. During this time, it is important to nourish them with proper love and care, otherwise they run the risk of a life of delinquency or violence. However, while most children are given the love and care they need, some parents find it necessary to use corporal punishment as a part of their upbringing. This act, while intended to mold the child into an upstanding citizen, is also a part of their upbringing, and it raises the question of whether or not corporal punishment could ultimately lead to a violent nature later in life. One article, found in the Journal of Family Violence tackles this topic thoroughly. The article, “Experiences of Parental Corporal Punishment in Childhood and Adolescence and its Effectiveness on Punitiveness”, goes into in-depth detail about the effects of corporal punishment on children, and whether or not it can be blamed for violent attitudes later in life. The article starts out by explaining how a child’s upbringing can influence their attitudes. In one part in particular it is stated that “By exercising violence, parents express that they themselves tolerate the use of violence” (Kemme, 2). Logically this implies that a child who is the subject of corporal punishment is likely to approve of the act because their parents have used it on them. The article goes on to explain that this is not the single factor that causes violence in children. It is stated that “There is not one single factor that drives punitiveness.” (Kemme, 3). While corporal punishment can be considered a factor that can lead to violence later in life, it would not be the only cause. The child’s environment and…

The Impacts of Violence on Children
It has not ever been considered right to assault another human being under most circumstances, and this still stands true. Our courtrooms see thousands, if not millions, of cases a year dealing with this very issue. In our country 3.3 million children live in homes where assault and abuse occur frequently. This means 29.4% of children with married parents have to face the reality of domestic violence and intimate partner violence (IPV) on a daily basis (Barg)…
Is media violence harmful to children?
Since the introduction of cinema, advances in media and technology has meant that children’s exposure to violence has become ever more accessible and realistic. There has been a long held view that the amount of violence available through media is detrimental to a child’s development as they are likely to copy what they see. This process of learning through watching others is called social learning and in 1963 Bandura conducted a notable experiment…
It's a scary world today!
Growing up used to be less traumatic just a few decades ago. Children back then worried about such things as a flat tire on their Schwinns and hoped that their teacher wouldn't give too much homework.
How life has changed. A 1994 poll found more than half the children questioned said they were afraid of violent crime against them or a family member. Are these kids just paranoid, or is there a real problem?
Well, it turns out this is not some irrational fear based…

outlets on children. Much of society claims to have proof for the belief that media violence affects children negatively. However, I am skeptical of the evidence that is stated to prove that claim. I feel that society has placed the blame on these mediums for the violent acts, however serious or trivial, that children commit way too easily, before they even begin to examine the parenting of today's society. Television, movies, and video games are not the primary causes for acts of violence and other…
