I'm with Johnny. Unfortunately social policy has not only curtailed discipline in the schools it has also curtailed it in the home. Discipline is an absolute must in any society and needs to be administered swiftly and consistently when behavior inconsistent with peaceful coexistence is demonstrated. The adopting of any social policy that curtails all action for the sake of obviating a relatively small occurrence of unwanted actions has clearly proven to be an ineffective approach. Just look at the occurrence of either child or spousal abuse. The number of occurrences has not gone down. The child protective services agencies have not shrunk in size. The numbers of laws relating to these most despicable actions have continued to expand. I think it high time the Social Engineers recognize this. If not we will be handcuffing and shackling more and more five year olds.
