I am strongly against corporal punishment. It is a method that causes more cons than pros. Not only does it cause physical harm it can also cause harm to children's mental health. Use of corporal punishment over an extended period of time causes more behavioral issues and has no positive outcomes, in the short or long run.
It causes physical and mental unwellness. It can also cause children to have difficulties with cognitive and social development, as well as reduced academic success and increased aggression and violence.
It also goes against a child's rights to physical integrity and human dignity and goes against the UN Committee's on the Rights of a Child.
I am strongly for disciplinary punishment whom those may call "corporeal punishment" that causes children to grow up to be law abiding citizens. I am proof of it. My progenitors and theirs are proof of it.
I guess there's an argument to every side of this. I believe this topic is mainly contextual and circumstantial. Either side can make a case.
