Violence Against Children in Nepal
PDF File Size: 433 KB | Download   
Corporal punishment and other acts that humiliate children (including verbal humiliation) are accepted practice in Nepal, in both schools and in home and are used as means to modify the behavior of children. The majority of educated people in Nepal are worried about the punishment system that prevails in the country, and the negative impact it is having on the physical and mental growth of children. Teachers need to know that the children learn naturally and as a matter of course, not in a fearful situation created by harsh punishment. UNICEF Nepal provided financial assistance to CIVICT to enable it to carry out the study of the existing punishment system in schools and homes. A two-member team CIVICT traveled to four regions of the country and conducted focus group discussion with the students, teachers and parents with the aim of finding out their opinions on corporal punishment and other such acts of humiliations.
