Popular Nigerian lawyer and author, Reno Omokri has stated that the act of most parents beating up their wards as a way of disciplining them has never served its purpose but instilled fear in the children.
According to him, beating up children either hardens them to be more stubborn or instills fear in them but never has it instilled discipline in the child. He said that beating up a child and animal cruelty are linked to a higher likelihood of adult criminality.
He averred that parents can develop a more comfortable way to punish their wards when they misbehave rather than subject them to pain when they misbehave.
Reno cited that parents can punish their wards by depriving them of somethings they know they would want to use all the time and reward them with the same thing when their behavior turns out good.
He solidified his point by saying that the popular statement in the bible :Spare the rod and spoil the child” was only a proverb and was never meant to be implemented literally.
