Topic: Physical Abuse Specific Purpose: To Persuade the audience why physical punishment as a form of discipline for children is wrong. INTRODUCTION Attention : I. We have all been kids once before, and we know that part of being a kid is being a trouble-maker. For example, picking all the flowers out of your mom’s garden, staying out after dark when we knew we weren’t supposed to, or ratting on your older brother or sister about what you saw when you walked in on them and their significant other. No matter what we did though, our parents always seemed to forgive us after a small dose of good ol’ discipline. But how did our parents punish us? Did we learn from it? BODY Need : II. Many people physically punish their children, which can result in lasting effects in the child’s future. A. Beating a child can cause physical pain. 1. Parents do not realize at times how hard they are hitting their child. a.) They have so much anger built in them to where they accidentally hit harder than intended. b.) What feels like a light slap to you could really hurt a child. c.) A light spank might seem okay but some parents get out of hand and start hitting harder and harder. 2. Some parents get carried away and do more than just spanking. a.) According to helpguide.org, about 2/3rds of the parents who physically abuse their kids, push their kids with strong force b.) 1/8 th of those who hit kids have admitted that they’ve burned their child at least once with a cigarette.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
