Babylon Centre for Human Rights and Civil Development, which is one of the civil society organizations in Babylon Governorate revealed that the percentage of the violence against children in Iraq increased up to 60% after the 2003 war. Reda Al-Azzawi, a lawyer and the centre manager said that this study depends on questionnaires to the parents whether they use physical punishments with their children, the questionnaires were also directed to the teachers in the whole Governorate, in addition to reports of the civil society organizations regarding the very same issue. Al-Azzawi said that after the questionnaire he had with some parents, 55% of them assured that they used violent ways with their children after 2003 because of the hard security situation, pressure and economic problems.

 

Al- Azzawi indicated that almost 65% of teachers often use the physical punishment against students when they teach because of the aggressive nature of the children, since there is no other way to deal with such aggressiveness (so they claim).
