    Nice article. It provides good information about the effects of physical punishment on the healthy development of the child. it gives us information to notice when a particular disciplining behaviour is turning abuse, it is very important to recognise this. It also provides a good insight with an example that gives a better understanding of the consequences of physical punishment in the healthy development of children. -Hima
