Sample text

When a child appeared to be less perfect or well behaved than others, he suggested that the parents should show it more affection and compassion in order to help it improve, just as they would care for a child who was ill. This was advice that modern psychology would not disown. Finally, this author listed several biblical quotations in praise of children’s obedience, but never cited those proverbs that mention the use of the rod. Instead he quotes St Paul’s advice: “Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged” (Col.

Biblical quotations such as “He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes” (Prov. 13:24) and “Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him” (Prov. 22:15) attest to both the antiquity and the legitimacy of the practice. The same tradition is found in Eastern countries. 3 With only a few exceptions such as Quintilian and Montaigne, Western advisers on parenting have long recommended that children’s misdemeanours be sanctioned with moderate corporal punishment to teach them the difference between right and wrong.

With complete consistency Nicolaÿ declared that discipline should come before persuasion and severity before mildness. 22 Some authors thought that the child should learn to obey even earlier, all the way from the cradle. No one suggested that babies should be beaten, but doctors did recommend resisting their whims to prevent them from turning into little tyrants. We should remember that these doctors were attempting to reduce the infant mortality rate by improving the quality of maternal care.
