Moreover, as a result of getting hit, the kid’s grades are likely to drop because the pain has become a distraction. Not to mention, that if grades are dropping they will most likely get punished for it, there would be a never ending cycle of physical punishment.

Although, some believe that corporal punishment could shock your child into behaving. But, there are also different ways to discipline your child without having to hit them. For example, you can take away their electronics, scold them, or take way luxuries for a certain amount of time. In addition, when your child does something good, you should give them a reward. The reward does not have to be anything big, it could even just be letting them know that you’re proud of them. Building a relationship with your child to the point where they can trust you and feel like they can tell you anything is a privilege. Not a lot of parents get the opportunity to be close with their kids because they choose the wrong punishments.

There are some punishments that help grow a healthy parent child relationship, but hitting your child is not one of them. Kids can be easily taught to behave without physical punishment, if you put yourself in their shoes you would realize the emotional and physical damage you are putting them through. Before physically punishing your kid, next time, think about their well being first
