|Title:||Physical Punishment||Contributor(s):||Sims, Margaret (author)||Corporate Author:||Centre for Community Child Health, Royal Children's Hospital||Publication Date:||2010||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/7127||Abstract:||One of the key responsibilities of parents is to help children learn to manage their emotions and behaviour. This supports children to become personally fulfilled individuals who can participate effectively in society. Parents can help children manage their emotions and behaviour through a variety of strategies including discipline, which might occasionally involve the use of negative consequences. However, physical punishment - causing a child pain or physical discomfort - is not only ineffective as a method of regulating children's behaviour, but can also be harmful.||Publication Type:||Report||Publisher:||Centre for Community Child Health, Royal Children's Hospital||Place of Publication:||Melbourne, Australia||Field of Research (FOR):||170102 Developmental Psychology and Ageing||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||940112 Families and Family Services||HERDC Category Description:||R1 Contract Report||Other Links:||http://www.rch.org.au/ccch/resources.cfm?doc_id=10886
