We have tried to make a comparison of the type of changes in parenting and the effect that it has brought in the children and society. With the growing awareness around the society about physical punishments and their impact, the ratio of children being physically punished at homes and at schools has significantly reduced. It has impacted the children and society overall. Things have changed a lot now and are very different than the way they were in the past. How they were in the past and how they are now is given below:
In the past corporal punishment had been a trend to tame children and make them do what parents wanted them to. This was not just the thing with parenting it was a significant teaching pattern even in the schools and colleges. The society used to believe that this is the only way and the best way to keep children on the right track. Children would definitely have physical abnormalities and shaken can self-esteem because of this behavior of the parents and the teachers. After parents have beaten their children they would come to their children and console them this would make their bond even stronger than it was before.
|The punishment was used to make children do things.|
|Children would want to avoid their parents to avoid being beaten. Yet bonding was strong,|
|Children were obedient.|
|Children lacked decision-making skills.|
|People of society were highly dependent.|
|People of society lacked self-esteem.|
|Parents had high control over the life of their children.|
|Children are likely to punish their children in the same way in the future.|
|No constructive feedback|
|The parenting style was unintentionally abusive.|
Presently when guardians know about the terrible effect of flogging on the emotional well-being and physical strength of their kids, they don’t rebuff them in that way. Presently they as a rule shout at them or use mockery. This has unquestionably less terrible consequences for the psychological wellness of their kids yet now youngsters have become so obstinate that they don’t tune in to their folks and guardians for the most part gripe that their kids are not respectful to them.
|Parents snatch things from children to make them do what they want them to do.|
|Bonding of parents and children is relatively weak because children are busy in other things yet now children don’t hate their parents as they don’t beat them,|
|Children are relatively less obedient.|
|Children make big decisions about their life themselves but under the guidance of their parents.|
|People of society are now relatively less dependent.|
|People of society have high self-esteem.|
|Parents have low control over the life of their children.|
|Children are less likely to punish their children physically in the future.|
|Now parents give constructive feedback.|
|The parenting style is not abusive.|
Society has significantly changed over a period of time. Therefore, the mental health issues of the 90s and 80s kids are much different from those who are now. Their personalities are very much different due to changes in the exposure and the environment that they received.
