Inculcating self-discipline is important for systematic pursuit of learning, development of interest and potential in the child. Punishments involve employing a noxious or painful stimulus that generates a variety of problems and negative side effects to the child. Corporal punishments severely affect the human dignity of children. This study throws light on the various disciplinary practices adopted by the upper primary school teachers. Sample was 100 teachers and students each from schools of 2 districts of Kerala. The findings reveal that teachers are using undesirable disciplinary practices more than constructive disciplinary practices. The main consequences of disciplinary practices according to students are low self-esteem, feelings of shame, anger, sadness, fear, pain, tension, and hate to teachers, mental fatigue and hate to the subject.
