Punishment is still spreading among Bulgarian parents as a method of education. Even if it does not lead to a fight, the other ways are no less offensive and psychologically traumatic for the child.
The punishments are of different duration: from 5 minutes, half an hour, to an hour, and it can reach a month or more. Interestingly, there are mothers who admit to punishing even their 2-year-old child.
Here are some of the most common pen alties:
In the corner!
The child is sent to the corner to be ashamed and think about the mess he made. It is applied to very young children - 2-4 years old.
In the corner with raised hands!
A very sadistic version of the first one.
March to the room without dinner!
Depriving a child of food is as cruel as slapping him.
The softer version of restriction.
Degrading and painful. Remember for a lifetime.
No TV and computer!
This is probably the most harmless, easy and he althy punishment. It lasts from 1 to several days, depending on how soft the mother is.
You won't go out with friends
It goes to teenagers, and its effect is questionable.
- To wash the dishes.
Wrong tactic, because this way the child perceives housework as a punishment.
Whatever punishment you apply, the child will always remember it and no wonder he applies it to his children as well.
And do you punish your children?
