Spanking - I saw this on Facebook today and just had to comment...
Whatever the reason, we are creating a generation of children, soon to be adults, that are bullies, that have no determination of what is right and what is wrong, and who have learned NOT to take responsibility for their negative actions. If a child learns that his parents will not correct him in a meaningful way if he does something wrong or breaks the rules, he/she has thus learned that there will be no consequences to their actions.
This can include minor actions such as simply breaking rules, to heavier actions such as bullying, hurtful actions to others, and even murder. The parent that didn't take the time to discipline their children feels remorse and shame if their child goes onto murder. The liberal parent blames society or the other person for their child's actions.
Not only does this new generation have defective morals, they also grow up to be adults with no backbone. Because their parents taught them to discuss anger issues and the other problems they face growing up, when faced with true adversity, they prefer to talk rather than to stand up for the morals that they weren't taught. Other stronger-willed persons can basically walk all over them. Kind of like what is happening in Europe right now with the migrant problem.
Argue all you want about sparing the rod, but it is so true. If you spare the rod, you spoil the child, and our new generation of leaders will be weak and spoiled. You asked for it, you got it.
