Corporal Punishment

  • Violent punishment of children is now recognised as a human rights violation.
  • Corporal punishment is widely practised at home and in schools, other institutions and penal systems for young people, as well as in situations of child labour.
    It remains socially accepted throughout the region, as it does in all regions of the world, except in the few countries where it has been prohibited and systematically challenged through sustained public, teacher and parent education.
  • Corporal punishment in the form of hitting, slapping, kicking, beating, pulling hair, etc., and other forms of humiliating punishment are not as yet generally perceived as abusive.
  • There is inadequate teacher training and parent education, promoting positive, non-violent forms of discipline.
