Humiliation is a way to hurt the dignity of a person, to destroy it and almost trample it. How would it benefit to humiliate a child either in public or in private? I already told you: nothing.
Humiliation, whether public or private, is a strategy that is not new but that many parents (unfortunately) use to try to discipline their children, and the most current is to do it in public, even taking advantage of social networks. A sad and degrading way to educate the children, who need a good example and not a humiliation.
Why humiliation should never be used in children
Children who have parents who use humiliation and shame in their children as tools to 'educate' them will be more likely to use similar strategies with other children. So if parents humiliate their children privately, in public or on the Internet, what are they teaching their children? Are children learning good ways to act? Obviously not.
Humiliating children in public or in private is like when children are victims of bullying. The feeling of helplessness and lack of dignity is the same, are there really parents who make children suffer in this way?
Humiliation and shame have very serious consequences on children
Humiliation and shame will always have serious and negative consequences on children and that is why it should never be used. As an adult, would you like to be humiliated in your family or at work to teach you how to do things better? Then, the answer to why it is not valid for children is answered alone. Let's see some consequences: La - The humiliation on the Internet is
a humiliation that can reach many people in a matter of minutes, and if that was not enough, it is content that can last online forever. Damage to a child's reputation can be damaged as quickly as clicking on a photo. - For children to grow up healthy and happy
they should trust their parents . Trust is the basis of psychological security. If parents humiliate their children, it is a serious breach of trust, an undeniable emotional wound and a broken bond with the child.- The psychological effects of shame and humiliation include a decrease in self-esteem and a sense of dignity, self-efficacy and even
can lead to depression, anxiety and very high stress . Qué What's worse than not being able to trust your own parents? You should know that power-based parenting does not work in the long term, and the best parenting is one in which all family members act as a team to solve problems. Parents must respect the child, set limits and standards but never resort to the psychic violence of humiliation or shame.Children deserve respect, dignity and have the opportunity to have good adult models with which to learn and develop properly in order to become successful adults.
