KAUAI CORRESPONDENCE INVITED

Corporal punishment of children has of late
been one of the storm centres of discussion.
Some parents and educators have contended that
certain children cannot be reached or taught except
through physical sensation,. that the only wav to bring
home to them a sense of wrongdoing and impress upon
their memory the fact that such conduct must not be
repeated is to punish in a way that gives physical pain.
Others as sturdily pin their faith to moral suasion
and look upon corporal punishment as a relic of barbarism.
But recently some one evolved the bright idea of letting the chil
dren speak. And since the matter is one that primarily affects the child,
whv should his voce not be heard?
The author of this clever idea decided to put it into practice and
as a result three thousand children between the ages of six.and sixteen
were asked the following questions: "What would you have done in
a case like this Jennie was given a box of paints. While her mother
was out, she painted the chairs to make them look nice for mama."
It is rather interesting, is it not, to know how children would
view such a problem, even though no practical good resulted? But
those who became interested in the question and its answers think that
certain helpful psychological results ensued.
A summary of the replies show that they could be divided into
three classes. The voungest children said that Jennie had been naugh
tv, had inflicted injury or sorrow upon her mother and should have
pain or damage visited upon herself. The children of intermediate
age thought that the paints should be taken from Jennie, and be kept
away from her until she knew how to use them, and not do mischief
with them, and that she be told she must not repeat this offense and
that if she did, she would be punished. The oldest children argued that
Jennie's mother should have reasoned with her and explained the use
of paints and the harm she had done and made her understand her
A writer in discussing the results says: The revelation of the
spiritual growth in childhood is startlingly suggestive, and the rever
sion of the individual to the childhood of the race is not without sig
nificance. The youngest, those in whom the moral instinct is awak
ening, think predominantly in terms of revenge or retribution. To
the more developed child, the prominent idea was the prevention of
future wrongdoing. The most advanced children, however, showed
more concern for Jennie's moral welfare than with damage to property
or punishment tor transgression, inese children seemed to recognize
Jennie's good intentions and sympathized with her ignorance and her
need of instruction and guidance."
to it would seem mat tne deduction might tairly be tnat very
young children comprehend the 1 jgic of retaliation and may he punish
ed for offenses through penalties and privations, that children from
ten to thirteen can he handled through methods that should prevent
repetition of wrongdoing, and the older children should be reasoned
It might be well, might it not, if we would consult children a lit
, tie oftener about those things that so closely affect them?
