The Logical Indian take

“Spare the rod and spoil the child” is an old saying used to justify the beating up of children by teachers or parents to “teach them a lesson”.

“Corporal punishment in the home” refers to causing deliberate physical pain to a child in response to some undesired behaviour by the child. It can be used by parents or teachers or guardians. Typically, it takes the form of spanking or slapping the child with an open hand or striking with an object such as a belt, slipper or cane, and can also include shaking, pinching, or forcing children to stay in uncomfortable positions.

Supporters of such actions say that it is needed to discipline children while opponents say it violates the rights of the child by exposing it to violence and can cause many mental issues in the child in the long run.

While many countries – like Sweden – have banned all forms of corporal punishment of children, the domestic corporal punishment of children remains legal in most of the world.

Most Indian parents admit to beating their children – even when they are as young as 4. Two out of three school-going children have experienced corporal punishment, according to the Ministry of Women and Child Development. In many cases, the violence is extreme and can even constitute child abuse. However, the laws against such punishment in India are unclear or poorly implemented.

The recent incident in UP is one example of too many similar incidents. Such violent indulgences by teachers or parents or guardians are shameful and should be condemned by all of us unequivocally.
