Kids - shocked

You could blame their parents, but the parents will automatically blame the government (why I don't know) like they always do. Gang rivalry seems to be prevalent in inner cities now.

RIP, Son.

Time for the government to give parents a wake up call. Kids under 16 committing serious crimes, make parents serve time as well.
too many low life parents seem to believe that society is responsible for taking care of their kids.

Family discipline has been dropped because do-gooders say that you should not smack the kids legs for doing wrong. I said smack, not beat! Discipline can do no real harm as All ex-servicemen/women know!!

I had a few smacks in my youth not so long ago, and believe me in moderation it doesn't do harm. If over used it's no longer scary and is just another way for attention so one does have to be careful in how you give out your punishment.

Most right minded people would agree, unfortunately not many of them are in the Government and too many liberal wishy washy tree hugging hippy do-gooders are running PC organisations and Human Rights Organisations.

How come it is a breach of their Human Rights to be punished but not a breach of mine to have to put up with their abuse, be it verbal or physical...

It's a funny old world. I have two children, the youngest (as they do) is trying his hardest to get attention and invariably that means he gets chastised. All the usual tricks rewards, incentives, fail - so now he gets a light smack on the hand and is excluded from whatever activity he was doing - big shock and embarassment factor and it works a treat.

However, I got hauled in at his nursery because he'd said "daddy smacks me if I'm naughty so I'm good now". Rather than get a well done as his behaviour has improved and he doesn't disrupt classes anymore I got warned if there was any forms of marks we'd be reported to the police????? And this was after they'd noted that his behaviour had vastly improved.

The problem with kids in general now (god that makes me sound soooo old - which I'm not), is that (IMHO) they know there are no real repercussion or consequences they will face, and in general the average person on the street won't get involved because they are too scared and when someone does get involved they invaraiably get hurt. Its become a vicious circle. They need a similar shock and embarrasment factor as my 4 year old, instead of a tap on the wrists they need to be singled out, excluded from mainstream activities and if need be given some physical punishment.

People, not just kids, should be made responsible for their own actions. It’s too easy for people (kids and adults) to blame everyone else but themselves. If parents can’t be arsed to discipline their kids, then who will, or more importantly who can?
