We, as adults, continue to fail young people because we don't listen to them and what they need. We are going to fail and continue to do so because youth are stereotyped so much by the older generation - which hooks other young people into thinking they have to behave like that. The term of "back in my day" is something heard so often and something people need to learn to avoid using. Back in your day? Well that was a different time.
There are people who believe bringing back "corporal punishment" is the way to solve all issues - it is one of the most damaging things to a child. A smack, punch or the caine will only breed violence, as it has in all you adults who had it, who believe in it - because just the saying "it never hurt me" proves it has damaged you mentally, as you believe violence is the answer.
Yes, punish bad behaviour but there are better ways of dealing with bad behavior than hurting them mentally. It is imperative we get things RIGHT for the children in this country.
