Ladies and Gentlemen, this is the result of a society that has decided that corporeal punishment is wrong. The old adage "spare the rod and spoil the child" is based entirely in truth. So also is "as ye sow, so also shall ye reap." We have long ago sown the seeds of this nonsense a-la Dr. Spock, and so many others of his ilk. These are the results of their progressive ideas on child rearing, and it was easily predictable.
