I think things have gone downhill since they got rid of the paddle in schools. There’s more violence in society, kids are running amock. They didn’t have school shootings back when they had corporal punishment in the schools. They didn’t have a bunch of namby, pamby social workers catering to out of control kids.
People say that hitting kids causes violence, but I don’t think that’s true. Why is there more violence these days than back in the day when they sent kids to the pricipals and the kid got the paddle? Kids are pretty basic and they need to be taught to fear their elders. I don’t see anything wrong with it. The parents need to toughen up too and quit pampering their brats. Things have gone downhill since they got rid of the paddle.
