Yep and in China (I think it is China) if you steal you get your hand cut off and there is virtually no theft there.
It may be harsh but it works.
If someone misbehaved, the nuns used to stand us in front of the room holding two books in the air for an entire period. If you let one arm drop, it was another hour. Brutal, yes. Effective, yes.
Natural boyishness is not a crime. It’s the way God made them.
If we keep a puppy shut up in a cage, are we surprised when he whines and barks and pees and poops all over? Do we respond by keeping him in there longer as a punishment? (If we want to “break” him, you bet we do.)
God made both the boy and the puppy, and we need to understand that natural design rather than force them into our artificial model.
But instead our schools are designed to kill the natural energy, creativity, and curiosity God put in boys - and girls. It’s the only way to shape them into useful human resources.
