Topic: “Spare the rod, spoil the child”.
As we know, children are our hope in the future of each country. They should have a good care and training. The way we choose to teach them is very important. In my opinion, using violent punishment is not a totally good way to educate children. The more spanking, the slower development of the child’s mental ability. But just a small amount of spanking will make difference. First of all, if you educate a little child very toughly, beating him and punishing him, you can have control over him so you can in some way know that he will behave well and obey. Also it would be easier to teach him good manners. So many people find that this way is the perfect one.
 But in some cases, parents go on beating and beating their kid and do not realize the damage they are causing to their own child. All of this can cause serious mental and psychological problems in the kid. In some of them, these mind problems, hide behind the tough and hard personality so no one realize of it. As a result of this, children start to have social problems at school, and start loosing friends until they are left alone. A child like that will become a violent person or will suffer from autism. Moreover, I think the tragic consequence is the fact that the relation between parent and the child can be seriously damaged with this. The communication between them is more difficult, and obviously the child doesn’t trust in his own parent, so clearly they cannot relate between them in a normal way. This makes the child see his parent as monsters or something like that and feels very afraid of even talking to them. As a conclusion I can say that beating children in a moderate way and only when is it is strictly necessary, it is fine. If you exceed on this, you can cause too much damage and problems which can leave the kid much worst than before.
