It is important for children to learn the difference between right and wrong at an early age. Punishment is necessary to help them learn this distinction.                                           to what extend do you agree and disagree with this opinion?
what sort of punishment should parents and teachers be allowed to use to teach good behavior to children?

Learning the difference between right and wrong is significant for kids at an early age. At the same time, Punishment is a powerful way to make them know the difference.

For kids at an early age, teaching them what is right and what is wrong will benefit them a lot. Once they know the right things, they won’t likely to make troubles to others. The rules and regulations will help them to behave properly. By contrast, if them don’t know what is right and what is wrong, them may make mistakes which is can not be restored. For instance, if them don’t know that fire is dangerous, they maybe get hurt. And another benefit is that the proper behaviour will have a long period influence. Even when they grow up, they still get benefits from what they learned at an early age.

To make the learn more effectively, punishment is a effect way. Punishment and reward have increasing scientific evidences that proved are helpful. Proper punishment will let kids have a more deep impression of what is wrong. Education without proper punishment have little power in teaching.

Many ways can be used as a measure of punishment. Reducing the time of playing games would be a good example. other ways like make him know if he do something he’ll have no right to do the things that he likes.

Educating young kids with punishment are significant, which could help them behave properly. That is what each parent should learn.

One important stage in a child’s growth is certainly the development of a conscience, which is linked to the ability to tell right from wrong. This skill comes with time and good parenting, and me firm conviction is that punishment does not have much of a role to play in this. Therefore I have to disagree almost entirely with the given statement.

To some extent the question depends on the age of the child. To punish a very young child is both wrong and foolish, as an infant will not understand what is happening or why he or she is being punished. Once the age of reason is reach ed however, a child can be rewarded for good behaviour and discouraged form bad. This kind but firm approach will achieve more than harsh punishments, which might entail many negative consequences unintended by the parents.

To help a child learn the difference between right and wrong, teachers and parents should firstly provide good role modelling in their own behaviour. After that, if sanctions are needed, the punishment should not be of a physical nature, as that merely sends the message that it is acceptable for larger people to hit smaller ones-an outcome whic may well result in the child starting to bully others. Nor should the punishment be in andy way cruel.

Rather, teachers and parents can use a variety of methods to discipline their young charges, such as detention, withdrawal of privileges, and time-out. Making the punishment fit the crime is a useful notion, which would see children being made to pick up rubbish they have dropped, clean up graffiti they have drawn, or apologise to someone they have hurt. In these ways responsibility is developed in the child, which leads to much better future behaviour than does punishment.
