1 According to American experts, physicalpunishment, in general, are not only useless for the effective education of the child, but also often negatively affect his health. This is evidenced by the test data, conducted among more than eight hundred children from two to four years and over seven hundred children from five to nine years. According to these data, children, whose upbringing was regularly subject to physical punishment, were much more difficult to cope with tests than children who were punished more gently for offenses. Thus, scientists came to the conclusion that the punishment of children should be fairly loyal, as some of their species lead to a slowdown in the intellectual development of the child. Especially it concerns physical punishment. Experts advise to teach children to control their emotions and develop their thinking, explaining in words what unreasonable actions and bad behavior can lead to.
