A recent study has found that physical punishment given to kids make them moody. The study was conducted by the researchers of Manitoba University. The findings of the study have been published in the journal Pediatrics.
The study was conducted after analyzing the interviews of 34,000 adults taken in 2004 and 2005. During the study, the researchers found that the acts of physical punishment like pushing, slapping and hitting leaves adverse affect over the development of the children.
Children who have experienced physical rebukes are more likely to be affected with mood disorder in their later part of life. The researchers noted, ".reducing physical punishment may help to decrease the prevalence of mental disorders in the general population".
The lead researcher of the study has warned that children at any age should not be physically punished. According to the researchers of the study, kids who have experienced physical assault have higher chances of being affected with depression.
The researchers informed that as compared to kids who had never been physically punished, the kids who have experienced assault are less happy in their life. Therefore, kids should not be physically punished, say researchers.
