    New thread started. Old one was a bit big.

    Ban on naughty corner, Easter parades | News.com.au

    ...the above link is a joke. It is no wonder we are seeing such poor literacy and maths skills coming out of schols. No longer is discipline something that helps children, instead, discipline is evil that gives us thegenerations we have...

    The lack of discipline is directly related to the degenerating attitudes of younger generations. And we the over politically correct are the only one's to blame. Not the government, each and every one of us.

    Actually, I think the goverment is partially to blame.

    They are the ones who introduced all the laws that prevent parents from being able to disipline their children harshly.

    Same thing at schools, kids these days have no respect for teachers because they know there is nothing they can do to them to punish them.

    Though parents attitudes are to blame too. Too many don't give a shit about how their kids are raised and when it becomes a major issue they use the cop out of TV violence, computer games, etc.

    Pretty much, these days with all the PC bullshit and limp wristed laws everything is someone elses fault.

    No one is responsible for anything anymore.

    Problem is directly the governments...probably too much lefty governments in fact (lets face it, Labor have been in power in the states as long as schooling has been going downhill). Schools now cannot expel a child without first finding them another school. If they cannot find another school they have to keep them there.

    Bring back the cane I say.

    +1 to that! The younger generations these days are growing up without any discipline, and that grows into a total lack or all respect for authority, elders, etc. It's actually quite sickening.

    Extract from article:

    I think this is a fantastic development. This should mean that obese people should be banned from all public places soon!

    I find the noises obese people make when walking, eating and sitting disturbing so logically they should be the next to go! I also find the sight of them distrubing and a little sickening

    I'm all for this type of policy.

    /sarc.

    Waffle cones?

    I heard that banning of the naughty corner on the radio at work this morning. I almost pissed my pants in laughter. They wonder why crime is escalating in the city and why young people are getting into fights, yet continue to just soften up the consequences. A young child spends a large chunk of their time in school, if they cant discipline them, then who is? The parents arent there and even parents are becoming useless with the old smack around the back of the legs being frowned upon.

    stuff the cane, make it a bit of 4 by 2, and dont sand it down, those splinters will make them think, along with the broken knuckles.

    having just come out of school i can tell you, younger years are getting worse and worse. and its too late to change their attitudes.
    maybe some sort of military discipline could do people alot of good, teaching respect and when to shut up.

    I'm kinda left of the current 'left' lol... but I am with you.. bring back the cane. My kids got thoroughly punished for any major stuff, and especially any kind of disrespect. They turned out pretty damn well. Its a shame that the Libs also would never touch these laws, its not just a Labor thing. Its a vocal minority being pandered to by whatever government is in power, just as always.

    I know a couple who had a kid taken off them by welfare. They hadn't done anything wrong at all, except to deny the 12 year old an Iphone4 to replace her Iphone3. She called the cops and cried abuse. It took 3 hours after they took her away for her to realise the major mistake she had made and recant her story, but nearly 2 weeks for her to get back home.

    How the hell can you teach a kid discipline under those conditions? If they had given her a good hiding like she deserved when she got home, its just another phone call and they are in serious chit. I doubt she would have, it scared the crap out of her when she realised the consequences of her actions the first time, but lots of people get in trouble for no more than loving their kids and teaching them right and wrong.

    Hey- have you seen the ads for the movement sensing hand cleaners? Apparently even the soap bottle is dangerous to touch in the modern world..
