Harvard:  After many studies, scientists at Harvard University are now advising children to avoid talking because this behavior can lead to depression, anxiety, behavioral changes, and even an addiction.

It can be said that killing children affects their brains in the same way that severe violence or abuse affects them.

Dr. Katie McLaughlin and John Loeb, both social scientists at Harvard University, report that slapping and physical violence damage children's brain development in much the same way that severe violence does. It can affect children's mental health, as well as the parts of the brain that play an important role in decision-making.

Although the study is short, it selected 147 children who were being beaten at school or at home. One of these children's brain areas is affected by prefrontal cortex (PFC) activity. That's why experts urge parents and teachers to avoid hitting children in the head.

Violence against children affects their development and lasts until adolescence. Experts say that beating children causes depression, sadness, and anxiety.
