Being a child development major, I frequently discuss parenting methods with my peers. I have found that many people, even future educators in my classes, use physical violence to discipline their children. I personally find it totally unnecessary and it shocks me that there will be future child care providers who find physical punishment to be an acceptable method of discipline. I never know whether I should share my opinion on physical violence and the affects it can have on children, or if I should let others parent in their own style and stay out of it. It’s a topic that I constantly find my self revisiting.

Does anyone believe in or know someone who believes in corporal punishment as an affective way to discipline? If so, what are the reasons?
