“Spare the rod, spoil the child” was a cautionary warning that the white majority in flyover country obeyed, with “Reading, ‘riting and ‘rithmetic, taught to the tune of a hickory stick” the prevailing method of assuring the natural tendencies of the young to rebel were overcome.
Yet for some reason, this method of introducing the more recent generations of “the young” to a degree of civilized behavior has been abandoned, with what the forefathers would have thought to be a reckless and foolish course of action. Trying to “understand” children without using discipline as necessary is an exercise in futility, as very quickly, they learn how to game the system.
The result is a bunch of feral children, disrespectful and even arrogant in their ignorance, challenging all authority, rightly or wrongly, but the challenge is based in physical terms, never on any intellectual grounds.
Families have to be dismantled in order to deify Godgov.
the root, like all children, goes back to their parents. My kids were prepared to go to school, there is discipline in my house, so good behavior in school was expected.
That isn’t the standard in certain “communities” so your use of “feral” is spot on.
“and thats all I got to say about that”
