Well, I do believe in strap/cane for correction but I am an adult and not a minor, so that's a completely different story, if you know what I mean.

Yes, indeed there is a lot of absurdity but unlike you I can't resist to comment on one argument.
User "The Colonel" argued, that "The threat of prison stops you from stealing doesn't it?" This is exactly the same silly argument as "death sentence is a deterrent". If that would be true we wouldn't have prisons and we wouldn't have murder in countries still having a death sentence. As we all know this is not the case.
In my opinion this thread is somewhat important, because it sheds a light on a problem, but sadly it fails to offer a proper solution. Some users stressed the responsibility of the parents to teach their children correct manners. That’s right and there is no excuse when parents fail to do their job. On the other hand we have to face reality. In these days of globalisation and unreined capitalism we have more and more families where both parents are forced to work full time and more. I can’t honestly blame a father or a mother who is too tired after 10 hours hard working to educate their kids in the way it should be done. What is our advice to them? Should we expect them to abandon children and leave that to the rich and wealthy part of the society? No, I think society should change just a little bit concerning more to social things and a little less to gather money.
