Corporal Punishment

Corporal Punishment

The acceptance of daily punitive violence is symbolic of children’s status in our societies as possessions. Save the Children challenges all forms of corporal punishment, however light they may be. We believe that every child deserves equal respect for their human dignity and physical integrity. We work towards ending corporal punishment whether in schools or homes. It is not acceptable whether it is exercised by teacher or parents. We sensitise and equip teachers and parents in positive discipline techniques instead of punitive discipline. Ending corporal punishment is an integral part of our inclusive Education and Child Protection programmes in various states of India.
