As a Teacher, Why Souldn’t I Beat My Students?

Why is hitting a child as a form of discipline considered a thing to despise in the West?

As a child, I was slapped by teachers and principals in school, hit by a wooden ruler and even punished in the form of some physical activity like “bend down and touch your toes” etc. It has not had any drastic effect on my psychology and I turned out great! Then why all the fuss now why not before?

Because the standard for evaluating behavior is not based on isolated cases.

“I smoke cigarettes, and nothing’s wrong with me!”

“I had unprotected sex, and I didn't catch anything!”

“I drove while drunk, and I got home fine!”

“I’m a regular user of cocaine, and I'm doing great!”

The studies and consensus on corporal punishment is clear. See The case against spanking

I'm glad you turned out well.

As the above sources show, that isn't true for far too many children.

That's not part of discipline. If you do that abroad you will be charged for child abuse
