Instead of punishment with physical pain and force, why not explain the mistake or the wrong doing a ...
I never did beat my son or daughter and they both turned out fine. I see parents who feel the need to beat children as failed parents they have a very limited communication skills. There are other ways to show a recalcitrant child the error of their ways without resorting to physical violence
What makes it even worse is that the other parent is a silent participator in the abuse. I do not know what kind of heart can a person have in order to watch this on a daily basis and do nothing at all. It doesn't matter if they fear for their safety or not. They have a duty to their children and have to protect them, no matter the cost. It is really sad, but it is a very common situation in many families around the world.
I agree completely that only people who fail as parents resort to violent and physical ways of teaching their children right from wrong. There are other more efficient ways to do that, but this is the result of societies full with idle people who start reproducing at the age of 16, have no education, knowledge or any ambitions. Children having children and then getting upset about it!!!
Punishment takes all forms. If words could change the child and does not repeat, then it should be good.
Unfortunately, majority does not have that understanding even they were given the explanation.
However, if the child is beaten and injured, then the price is even higher.
So, gauge which is difficult but avoid over beating.
