What a crock! So how is it that we have so many more idiots after Dr. Spock then before?

Hmmm, not suprised by study. Yet the children
of authoritarian and punitive parents, who use corporal punishment and who are less educated and intelligent, would have their parent's genes
and intellectual modeling. That might put them
at an intellectual disadvantage as much as the traumatic beatings.

Why must our school systems produce such idiots? There is good and bad in everything. If the good outweighs the bad, then common sense shows the way.

I am 56. I have a tenth grade education, by schooling standards. My mother was a very strict, disiplinarian, that used corporal punishment, because she raised 5 kids mostly, all by herself.

She also taught each one of us with good common sense. Schools and the workplace today, dumb down the students so badly, that I rarely see people that can actually think for themselves. I rarely find anyone with the same common sense.

The piece being discussed by the writer is stupid. If you can't show why, you shouldn't be here.

If a village raised each child in the same fashion, gave them the exact same opportunities, judged them equally and taught each in a loving manner, every step of the way, corporal punishment would still be needed, but it would be as rare as hens teeth.

What would the senarios be--that caused a parent to use corporal punishment? Even with the best of the best teaching, no child, parent or village, is without fault.
