Why must we 'spare the rod and spoil the child'?


It disturbs me very much when I see my grandchild not being corrected by his parents for incessantly bad, disrespectful, disruptive or bullying behavior. Merely saying gently to him that he should not be doing whatever he is doing does not show him it is wrong. I just want to give his little bottom a quick smack to stop him, and then explain why. . What disturbs me acutely is when I see children hitting their parents, and being gently reprimanded! The natural progression from this is the discarding of parents when they are old and infirm. Where is our society going?
