“I have been phys­i­cally pun­ished by my mother. Nat­u­rally, it af­fected me in terms of pain and I felt as if some­times she just hated me. I have to say I don’t fully sup­port this form of pun­ish­ment as not all chil­dren’s mind­sets are the same. Some chil­dren are strong and ac­cept the pun­ish­ment. How­ever, there are some chil­dren who take it the wrong way and get men­tally trau­ma­tised, which may lead to psy­cho­log­i­cal break­downs and even, in the worst case sce­nario, sui­cide.”
