I used to get a leather belt up and down my ass as a kid when I got out of line. Kids these days are quick to scream child abuse and other things due to stuff they hear at School, Social Media and elsewhere. They even complain to teachers at school that Mommy or Daddy beat them the night before when all it was, was a discipline whipping. Parents hands are tied these days. Nobody wants CPS called on them. Somewhere along the line, I'd say in the 1990s, there was an illusion that took place that transformed discipline into abuse.
You then turn these kids out into the real world after 12 years of that, and now these same kids (now adults) expect the real world to be like this. Instead, they find that college is expensive, jobs in their field expect 10 years of experience for an entry-level position, and people can offend them without being sent to the adult Principal's office (unless they are in corporate, in which case they get sent to H.R.).
