Up until around the mid-'90s corporal punishment was very common. Our parents would physically punish us for misbehaving, and in the earlier years, our school teachers were also allowed to do so. Nowadays, you cannot even threaten to physically punish your kid without fear of the state stepping in and taking your child away. Many believe that this fear gives the child too much power, and that is why kids today are so out of hand. What do you think?
