Put the rod back in the parents hands and things will eventually turn around. Remember back when the rod was taken away, things went to hell in hand basket. Everybody says decipline should begin at home and they are right but once the decipline factor was taken away from the parents, you now see what it has caused. Excuse the language, but a good ole fashion "ASS WHIPPING", never hurt nobody. Those of you that are over 50, it probably made you the kind of person you are today. I know I can look back and see exactly what caused me to make the decissions I made. It sure wasn't, "Don"t you do that!". It was because I knew what a leather belt or a hickory stick was and I knew my parents and grandparents knew how to use one. A hickory stick with authority cross the back of a young'uns thights will go a long way in his/her decissions. "GUARANTEED".

Guess what? A "good ole fashion 'ASS WHIPPING'" is perfectly legal. Really. And running around bitching about kids these days is as old a pastime as having kids. Whether Socrates said it himself, or whether Plato just attributed his own sentiment to Socrates: "The children now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise. Children are now tyrants, not the servants of their households. They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their legs, and tyrannize their teachers."

The most reliable way to raise a good child is not to beat him, but to teach him and love him and enforce the rules - which sometimes involves corporal punishment in many perfectly reasonable families. The most reliable way to raise a monster is to just beat him, instead of using good judgment in choosing methods of discipline most suitable to the situation and the child.

And apparently, the most reliable way to raise an idiot is some combination of leather belts and hickory sticks... "GUARANTEED."

PS - CAPS LOCK makes you look like a bigger ignoramus than your grammar and spelling.

hrrmgt...Very well said & I totally agree. For many years on/off I have worked with children that were abused & their abusers (not referring to "controllable paddling" by a parent). By "controllable" I mean for the parent to assess the situation, apply consequences related to behavior & if needed. a spanking, when the parent is not angry!!! The majority of the time spanking is not needed. I have seen to many cases of emotional, physical & sexual abuse that I will never turn my back. I wish there were more reasonable, intelligent people in this world to raise children who are capable of caring, loving, learning & succeeding.

Your right about kids that are beaten sometimes end up have issues. I donít think he was talking about beating kids, but dispelling them with force. Itís wrong to always punch, slap and knock your kids around over little things. To me it is not wrong to bend your child over and spank them with a belt or paddle for disobeying you, and if your child back talks you or curses at you thatís when you slap them across the face. That is not beating a child that is disciplining a child. Now days you spank you kids they go to school and tell the teachers and then you have the department of family services knocking at your door. I have a daughter and when she gets older she will get whipped with a belt for if I feel it is the appropriate punishment and if she tries to back talk me or curse me then I will slap her across the face and tell her to go to her room and if she does not say yes sir then Iíll get the belt.
