4 th Generation Texan

"Alvin", you dontinually show your stupidity. The greatest generation ever (early 1900's through about 1950) raised their children using corporal punishment and it worked great...kids knew exactly what was expected of them and knew there were consequences if they didn't do as they were told. Now modern parents are scared of their kids and want to be friends with them. A parent's job 'is not to be a friend' of kids...that is not their job. A parent's job is to feed, clothe, house, and guide them using moral values or other values that fit in with the guidelines that produce productive, law abiding useful citizens. If that kid's parents had raised their child correctly there would never be an instance where he/she would be slapped. Now, if that teacher is punished what kind of message will that send? Would that message be, "Little johnny or Little Susie you may do anything "Anything" you like and to hell with your teacher? And, if any kid is constantly slapped or injured then that is a different situation. I don't necessarily advocate slapping kids, but if they are totally out of order or out of line, then a sharp slap is warranted. Obviously the kid that supposedly got slapped came from one of those families that believes in "talking and reasoning" with the kid and make them take a 'time out' and has been told that they have "rights". That, in most cases is the most stupid, assinine method of rearing children ever invented. Kids ARE NOT equals to adults, and kids DO NOT have the same rights as adults. A child should have no more rights than what is given to them by the parent (excluding of course, food, shelter, clothing and an expection no physical abuse). I do not consider corporal punishment physical abuse unless it is done often and leaves injuries.

My parents used corporal punishment, and their parents used corporal punishment, etc etc and it has worked for thousands of years, but all of a sudden modern child psychiatris are swimming upstream against proven results. I don't recall that there was a preponderence of hostile rage when the 'greatest generation' used corporal punishment. That is the quickest and most effect way to guide kids and to make more of corporal punishment than than it being a guidance method of raising children (in most instances) is do do injustice to a system that has worked for generations.

If your 'rage and anger' charge is true then there has been a whole lot of rage and anger displayed over the last several thousands of years.

Alvin, I consider you one of people that are help ruin out country and society. It's people like you that should be put in a special place away from decent folk
