A recent case of a teacher punishing the child led to new concerns on Why spare the rod (should we spoil the child?) Well, I feel every child need the vital ingredients of self esteem:
Physical safety-freedom from physical harm.
Emotional security-no pressure and fear
Affiliation-sense of belonging and being wanted
Purpose-feeling of some meaning in life and looking for direction
However, as a teacher I can say, Parents and teachers are more responsible as they fail to discipline the child. Are we not pampering children a lot? Rather, we are more 'wandering' ourselves and caught up in the wave of new gen living lifestyles! Should we spank or not...well, a concern but the recent announcing of the law calls in for the FIR - check in Kidsfreesouls on this.
