Many adults who were physically disciplined as children still consider it ok to do so. When it comes to the use of corporal punishment, there is an ongoing debate on whether or not spanking and hitting a child is an acceptable form of parenting. Objectives: 1) Increase cultural awareness and give examples of differences in parental discipline in some cultures. 2) Discuss ways to address multicultural differences in a culturally competent manner. 3) Assess the physical and mental effects of corporal punishment from a medical perspective. 4) Discuss the CPS investigation based on the Texas Family Code guidelines. 5) Discuss the law enforcement investigation based on the Texas Penal Code guidelines. 6) Discuss criminal laws relating to corporal punishment, assess the legal defenses to prosecution, and recognize when corporal punishment becomes abuse.
