Pediatricians Just Took a Hard Stance Against Spanking
07 November, 2018, 20:15
The policy statement describes corporal punishment as "noninjurious, open-handed hitting with the intention of modifying child behavior" and indicates that spanking is considered a form of such physical punishment.
The organization says, "Corporal punishment and harsh verbal abuse may cause a child to be fearful in the short term but does not improve behavior over the long term and may cause more aggressive behaviors".
Verbal abuse and humiliation is also counterproductive, the pediatrics group said.
"In the 20 years since that policy was first published, there's been a great deal of additional research, and we're now much stronger in saying that parents should never hit their child and never use verbal insults that would humiliate or shame the child", said Dr Sege.
"Children who experience repeated use of corporal punishment tend to develop more aggressive behaviors, increased aggression in school and an increased risk of mental health disorders and cognitive problems", Dr. Robert Sege, one of the authors of the guidelines, said in a statement.
"If you limit your surveys to people who have a child aged five years and younger in their homes, who are a new generation of parents, a lot of them don't like to spank their children and often don't spank their children", he said.
A 2016 analysis of multiple studies, for example, found that children do not benefit from spanking. "We can do better". "In preschool children, time-out (removal of positive parental attention) has been shown to increase compliance with parental expectations from ∼25 percent to 80 percent, and similar effectiveness is seen when used appropriately with older children", the statement notes.
That held even when parents were otherwise warm and loving.
The research found, among other things, that, over time, spanking often leads to more aggressive behavior in kids.
The report said the risk of harsh punishment is increased when the family is experiencing stressors, such as family economic challenges, mental health problems, intimate partner violence, or substance abuse.
"Second, use positive reinforcement to increase the behavior you want from your child". "If you have questions about disciplining your children, talk with your pediatrician", it advises. Only 6 percent of the 787 United States pediatricians surveyed in 2016 approved of spanking, and only 2.5 percent actually expected it to do any good.
Doctors at the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) have strengthened their stance against spanking as a way to discipline kids.
