What To Do: A multifaceted healing—mind, body, spirit process specifically focused on mental, emotional, physical and/or sexual abuse and diligent work is the most effective process; wherein the survivor can replenish her/his mental, emotional, physical, spiritual identity and empowerment. The symptoms which are diagnosed as disease, genetic or a disorder is the psyche’s message system that something is awry and needs to be addressed at the root cause….the mental, emotional, physical and/or sexual trauma.
Worldwide research shows that corporal punishment absolutely serves no useful purpose whatsoever, but, causes untold damage to the individual, and creates broken children, broken adults, physical and mental wrecks, violent abusive, aggressive revengeful adults, wife-beaters and all that adds up to an appalling society that nobody wants.
Corporal punishment usually stops the misbehavior in the immediate situation, but parents and teachers have no way of seeing the long-term effects such as depression or hitting a spouse because they do not show for months or years later.
Like all harmful events, most people who experience them, are not harmed. For example, while a third of heavy-smokers die from smoking related diseases, two-thirds of them don’t meet the same fate. Similarly, only a small percentage of solders in combat end up with Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome.
The method is to treat the child with respect. it is to treat the child as important as you are. it is treating him with the same respect with which you wish for him/her to treat others, you and him/herself.
Corporal punishment is mistakenly equated with discipline, to which it has no relation whatsoever. On the contrary, it is a widely practiced form of mental and physical torture, that causes irreparable damage throughout the person’s life and violates the rights of the child.
