Scientists Say Spanking Children Can Cause Mental Disorders

A number of researchers from Canada, previously said that spanking a child can lead to bad things. These studies came from the family medicine and social sciences department located at the University of Manitoba and Ron Ensom, of the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario. One doctor there named Joan Durrant, conducted the analysis.

Physical punishment should always be a last resort. After research and further studies conducted, 11 countries have since banned physical punishments since the 1990’s. The Convention on the Rights of the Child by the United Nations, released information saying 191 out of 196 countries endorsed the held convention on this very subject. 

“Three forces — research, the convention and law reform — have altered the landscape of physical punishment,” the researchers said.

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) stated, “legally binding international instrument” adopted in 1989 is a “special convention” of international leaders that outlines special needs of “people under 18 years old often need special care and protection that adults do not.”

When the UNCRC warned all governments and policymakers to both protect and ensure each child’s rights, they had to agree to hold themselves accountable before the international community. This allegedly was a commitment to the children and to their protection. The United Nations (established on October 24, 1945, in San Francisco, CA) has defined family as “the natural and fundamental group unit of society”. 

A promise was made to enforce internationally actions against any nation that did not uphold their definitions of human rights in individual sovereign countries.

The researchers included different variations of physical punishment including but not limited to pushing, grabbing, shoving, slapping and/or hitting a child. The punishment is inflicted by the parents and can have a life-long impression upon a person.

When a child is spanked, they have to overcome emotional responses and physical type abuse. Later in life, some individuals develop psychological problems, which lead to depression and sexual problems among others. 

Further studies conducted, stated that children who were spanked were 2 to 5% more likely to develop mental type disorders.

A survey taken in the United States, said that 50% of everyone polled remember being spanked as a child. Perhaps this is what has led some people to different directions in their life, that they never should have taken in the first place. It is something to think about.
