Reward the good behaviour and ignore the bad.
So with that in mind I'm against corporal punishment.
Surely there's better ways of making an attitude adjustment.
Because in my eyes violence begets violence.
Parents and schoolteachers need to be more lenient instead whacking their kids backside with a slipper or cane.
It just sounds too much like boot camp.
If your kids have got an psychological problem see a shrink or social worker.
However some kids are so scarred by sexual abuse it seems like there's no easy way out.
It has been shown ignoring bad behavior just causes one to go and do something worse either because they got away with something once without consequences might aswell do it again and again.No lesson is learned other than hey i can do what i want.Then you have the ones who act out for attention so if ignored the first time then just go and do something bigger and better to grab the attention.
