If you want to read: lolSpoilerAlso, my dad never touched me with his bare hands. He used a belt. I know, to you, that probably doesn't make things better since we will never agree. But he never physically touched me. It's even in the bible (for anyone who reads it lol, because I am not religious anymore) spare the rod, spoil the child. I think removing spanking from ways of punishing children has ruined the children of today! This is why children don't listen and think they can disrespect adults. In my young days, we didn't have all these problems with children acting out the way they do now. We would never think about standing up to our teacher and raising a hand to them. Children think they have more power over adults with all these laws and ways of dealing with children. It isn't working which is why our world is going to hell. All I know is, I always thought twice before doing something I knew was bad. It definitely taught me to behave and do the right things and not the wrong.
For reals, you think the only way to instil respect and manners is through inflicting pain?
