International Day against abuse and corporal punishment

It is said that : A childhood without beatings is incomplete , There is a saying about feudal dross “ There is a filial son under the stick ”, It seems that our generation all have similar childhood shadows , And now I see feather dusters 、 Shoe cushions 、 Clothes hanger 、 Brooms and other things , And think of : My mother must be very good at beating me with it .

But kids don't “ The more you fight, the more skinny you are ”, The impact of domestic violence on children is huge and profound , A number of studies have shown that , Violence can lead to adolescent depression and increased risk of crime , Children who suffer corporal punishment are more prone to anxiety 、 depressed 、 Behavioral problems and other mental health problems .

In recent days, , Harvard researchers published in 《Child Development》( Child development ) A study in the journal shows that , Spanking can even affect a child's brain development .

In most people's normal cognition , Spanking doesn't seem to be serious domestic violence , According to the survey , Spanking is one of the most common forms of parenting used by parents around the world , Even in this way “ From generation to generation ”.

And there's a lot of soft tissue in the hips , Beating a kid doesn't look like he's hurt , Parents can also achieve the goal of education , There doesn't seem to be any harm .

But actually , Spanking is also a form of corporal punishment , The effect of this approach on children's brains , It may be similar to the consequences of more serious forms of violence .

The Harvard team found that , Spanking strengthens the prefrontal cortex in children (PFC) Neural responses in multiple areas . These areas of the brain respond to signals such as threats in the environment , And may affect children's decision-making and ability to analyze the situation .

The authors point out that , Corporal punishment has always been associated with mental health problems 、 anxious 、 depressed 、 Behavioral problems are related to drug abuse . Recent research shows that , About half of parents in the United States report having spanked their children in the past year , A third have played in the past week . However , No one has studied the relationship between spanking and brain activity .

Katie, a senior researcher in the study ·A· McLaughlin ? And colleagues analyzed a project that covered 3 To the age of 11 Data from a large study of 12-year-old children . They focused on 147 I've been spanked 10 To the age of 11 Year old children , But it doesn't include children who have suffered more violent abuse .

When every child has an MRI scan , The computer screen in front of you will play what the actor did “ Fear ” and “ neutral ” expression . The scanner captures the child's brain activity when different expressions are played on the screen , The researchers analyzed these brain images , To see if the brain activity of a spanked child is different from that of a child who has not been spanked .

The researchers say :“ On average, , In all samples , Fear faces elicit stronger responses in multiple brain regions than neutral faces . But compared to kids who have never been spanked , Those who had been spanked were more responsive to the face of fear in multiple areas of the prefrontal cortex .”

Combined with previous studies on abused children , The study also found that , by comparison ,“ When abused children and spanked children see the face of fear , No part of the brain responds differently .”
