The Truth about Corporal Punishment.

About padmum

You could call me Dame Quixote! I tilt at windmills. I have an opinion on most matters. What I don't have, my husband Raju has in plenty. Writer and story teller, columnist and contributer of articles, blogs, poems, travelogues and essays to Chennai newspapers, national magazines and websites, I review and edit books for publishers and have specialized as a Culinary Editor and contributed content, edited and collaborated on Cookbooks. My other major interest used to be acting on Tamil and English stage, Indian cinema and TV. I am a wordsmith, a voracious reader, crossword buff and write about India's heritage, culture and traditions. I am interested in Vedanta nowadays. I am now an Armchair traveller/opinionator/busybody!

    Thankfully, I am not involved in this debate even as a grandparent. I suffered a great deal of corporal punishment at home and school as you well know but never lifted my hand to punish Ranjan. The latter, to the best of my knowledge did not get corporal punishment in school either. Both of us have grown up to be reasonably sane and well adjusted human beings. I cannot but be philosophical about the subject.

    Corporal punishment teaches children that it’s okay to use physical force to get your way. It produces bullies and creates a violent society.
