RE: Psychology Addict # 58 | Punishment – An Overview Through the Lens of Psychology.

in #psychologylast year

One would of course prefer a society where punishment is not needed at all but sometimes people just don't follow the rules because they are aware that they won't experience any consequences. It's a sad fact of life. But having said that. Charity as well as good manners begins at home. If we taught our children and if our parents have taught us and so forth we shouldn't have had a problem to start off with. Good article. Thought provoking

Hello @dkkarolien :)

Like you, I also think it's sad that some people (not the majority) only conform to society's norms because of the possibility of being punished. The point you made about the values that are nurtured at home is a truly valid one. The foundations of socialization and morality are indeed laid by the examples set by caregivers.

I am very glad you like this post.

thank you for taking the time to read and provide such wonderful feedback.

Have a great day !
