NO not just physical discipline as in a little swat now and again, but they also lacked discipline in their own mind.
A disciplined person is a trained person. Training may take some physical discipline so they know right from wrong. Love is always the key.

I was not saying that at all. I was saying the one teaching is where they learn to be respectful. You cannot teach respect in a book or a classroom, it is learned by example the kids will mimic their parents. If the parents are not respectful generally the children wont be.
Or they will learn it by example of their peers if they don't see their parents very often because of work issues, lack of parent or parents in the house. My children are not m=family of a community, they are my family and I must be responsible to teach them by example. This is what is wrong, no parental guidance, only public education system raising a generation of self absorbed self centered kids who need safety zones to handle the stress of life. And if anything happens they blame everyone and take not responsibility for their own actions.

My sister is considering homeschooling her youngest kid and I have been trying to talk her out of it cos I believe homeschooling can create social behavioral issues. After reading such diverse views about homeschooling, I am now confused about how I feel about homeschooling.

In 2006, Sir Ken Robinson, a British author and international advisor on education, held a moving, must-see TED talk which has been viewed by millions on how schools kill creativity.
The primary way schools go about killing creativity is by punishing children for making mistakes, while failure is the prerequisite to learning and creativity. In Robinson's words: "Being wrong is not the same thing as being creative, but if you are not prepared to be wrong, you will never come up with something original." It is important to note that creativity is more than artistic creativity; it is the ability to transcend traditional ideas and create innovative solutions by using one's imagination.
I once heard the term "bulimic system" being used to describe the way we stuff our students with facts, which they then have to puke out on a test at a later date. This highly ineffective system is nothing more than a memory test and leaves no room at all for creative thinking. The dreadful result is that at the end of their education all kids, young adults by then, are afraid of being wrong, because they have been taught that there is nothing worse than making mistakes. Our children start primary school as young artists and leave university as imaginationless sheep.
The educational system was created by rich bigots in power to control peoples children, in order to create their little empire of drones to do their work for them, drone work.
The Independent Treasury Act of 1921 suspended the de jure (meaning "by right of legal establishment") Treasury Department of the United States government.
Our Congress turned the treasury department over to a private corporation, the Federal Reserve and their agents. The bulk of the ownership of the Federal Reserve System, a very well kept secret from the American Citizen, is held by these banking interests: Rothschild Bank of London Rothschild Bank of Berlin Warburg Bank of Hamburg Warburg Bank of Amsterdam Lazard Brothers of Paris Israel Moses Seif Banks of Italy Chase Manhattan Bank of New York Goldman, Sachs of New York Lehman Brothers of New York Kuhn Loeb Bank of New York
The Federal Reserve is at the root of most of our present laws. Basically, the Federal Reserve is the "STATE" of the United States. See "Our Enemy, The STATE" by Albert J. Nock - 1935, his Classic Critique Distinguishing "Government" from the "STATE." See Also Charts in Text Format of Interlocking Directorships and Family Linkages taken from "Federal Reserve Directors: A Study of Corporate and Banking Influence. Staff Report, Committee on Banking, Currency and Housing, House of Representatives, 94th Congress, 2nd Session, August 1976." Thomas Jefferson once said: "I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies . . .
If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] . . . will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered . . . The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs." -- Thomas Jefferson -- The Debate Over The Recharter Of The Bank Bill, (1809)
and then, there's the problem of the entire Education System being geared towards Left Brain Thinking.
This is a problem, particularly for Right Brained Children.. Why do they do this?
