In Ohio and other States, children should be provided with adequate and appropriate care in a child care / day care center. Children should be supervised in a caring involvement free from abuse and neglect. Unfortunately, many children are injured in Ohio day care centers due to negligence and some due to the intentional acts of day care workers. Corporal Punishment is a form of discipline used by some child care providers. Physical and emotional acts of discipline can have a lasting effect on a child. Whether Corporal Punishment results in physical injuries or not, it should be reported to the facility and to the State licensing authorities.
