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.

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

A child's exposure to violence is pervasive. Children see violence in their schools, their neighborhoods, and their homes. The daily news is rife with reports of child molestations and abductions. War in foreign lands along with daily reports of murder, rape, and robberies also heighten a child's perception of potential violence.

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). The effect of witnessing this violence has a crucial impact on developmental processes, standard skills, and stress disorders.

However, there is a big controversy questioning the effects of these media 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.…

Observing violence in media both desensitizes and models destructive behavior for children; therefore, I argue there is a correlation between observing violence in media and aggressive behavior in children.
