It's precisely when the pu$$y-ass, liberal, politically correct "go to time out" crowd took over setting child discipline precident, that kids started shooting eachother, raping their teachers, building bombs and generally getting out of control.
A good whack in the ass never hurt anyone, it worked for me just fine. It's he most basic, primal form of respect that a young child can learn.
I've heard it before: Some whiny, snot-nosed punk-ass ten-year-old screaming at the top of their lungs telling their parents "Ya well, I'll just call the cops and get you in jail." That's all kids know today, no fear, no respect.
Kids have no respect anymore...
