Corporal punishment is the use of physical force to cause a child to experience pain, but not injury, for purposes of correction or control of the child's behavior (Straus, 2001). It is a teacher’s act which causes discomfort to a child by hitting with an object/hand, spanking, beating with a whip or belt, cane, shoe, rod, kicking, pulling hair, pinching the student, winding ears or arms, forcing the student to stand in a painful position, or to take extreme physical exercise (UNICEF,2005 ).
