It isn't that they weren't hit as children that causes them to act out, actually I think it could be argued that those that act out violently most likely were hit. I was hit as a kid by my father, and the only thing it taught me was how difficult it is to overcome anger issues later in life.
The most likely reason that a lot of adolescents act out is because no one ever took a vested interest in them when they were younger. They didn't have a positive influence in their life that supported them and expected great things of them. Their parents are totally oblivious as to what's happening in their lives, and essentially once they're old enough to be left alone they're expected to raise themselves without any kind of structure.
It's not hippy dippy liberal PC BS either (there's gotta be something wrong with those of you out there that want to turn every thread into a partisan debate) you can be firm with your children without "loving" them with your fists.
A moronic standpoint. You said yourself you were beaten many times. So tell me this, if beatings work, why did you still keep doing bad things? Surely if corporal punishment is a remedy for bad behaviour in children, you'd have been a model child. Apparently not, given that you weer beaten regularly, unless your parents were just sadists.

I was punished like this many times
when I was in grade school right here
in North Carolina, USA in the
My school principal had a paddle in his top
desk drawer which I was the receiver
of that many times.
My father used his leather belt on my
hiney many times. Sometimes it hurt
so bad I couldn't sit down for a day or two.
And my mom used a switch from a bush
or used her shoe.
if I did something wrong, I was punished.
end of story.
this is called parenting
spare the rod, spoil the child
I don't see anything wrong with the video.
children need to be taught that there
are repercussions for breaking rules.

So a ruler to the hand is shocking and worth arresting? I remember being paddled!! and oh good lord what if my dad found out I was messing up in school, I'd get the belt. Come on people, I admit what he did was probably illegal(I am not familiar with laws in Egypt) but arent we blowing this a little out of proportion?? I think disciplining kids is a good thing as long as it doesnt cross the line into abuse. I know we have all seen kids that didnt get disciplined and seen how they act. Maybe it's just me but I wasnt shocked nor appalled.
That actually made me laugh it's so ridiculous. If you're aware that what you're doing is wrong, just don't do it. Use your brain.

P.S. - I truly wish I was beaten more for wrong doings in school... I'd have more respect for other people and their feelings. Also I'd watch my language and I'd control my self better.edit on 28/5/2011 by archasama because: added P.S. part

Well maybe thats because way back in the olden days kids were made out of leather, from being hit so often maybe? hmm
