    I certainly don't think so, she should be thankful that her punishment wasn't a whole lot worse. I think a lot of teenagers today need a good metaphorical butt kicking, they are raised horribly, with no respect for anyone or anything, and expect to always have the latest and greatest material goods without ever having to do anything to earn it. It's no wonder our society is so screwed up.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    When corporal punishment was in schools nation wide, school shootings were something that never made the news.

    Very true. I grew up in schools where the principal could take a misbehaving student and paddle their backside and you didn't see it very often. Liberalism has ruined this country.

    I agree, my stepmother loved teaching until she was afraid of liberal parents and had to deal with their hateful kids that could not be controlled. She retired after 27 years instead of 30. She was actually bitten once.

    Is there a cause and effect relationship between those two issues, or could both be due to changes within society?

    It's hard to see how a corporal punishment policy at Sandy Hook Elementary could have prevented the school shooting there.

    My mother-in-law was a teacher for 35 years, she spent the last 15 working with special needs kids because they were easier to handle than regular school kids. Kids today are not raised well, they have no discipline, they have no respect and the second you try to teach them any, their idiot liberal parents come screaming that there's nothing wrong with their little monsters.

    That sort of thing happens all too often now.

    "My child says that he didn't do it, and he never lies, so you must be wrong."
    "Why are you picking on my child?"

    and the all time favorite: "Well, boys will be boys!"

    to which the obvious response is, "Yes, they will be boys all t heir lives unless someone teaches them to be men."

    This is not, by a long shot, the first time I've seen this disciplinary tactic reported on in the news. It is, however, the first time I've seen it criticized. Google, "sign on corner, punishment" to see plenty of examples.

    Look at Clinton's behavior. Look at the last vote. Gee, I wonder where kids are learning this from? Can a Parent actually offset so many examples given to our children by the public? Can they compete, realistically with peers and natural selfishness and greed when society now has almost made a religion of it?
