When I was at school, the devil was kept at bay by a cane stick because there were no better way of nipping the mischievousness in the butt.
All children are naughthy and tend to tease teachers into oblivion.
If naughthyness is not addressed at school level,it will grow into disobedience and arrogance.Children need to be shown the right way and not be allowed to experience life without a strong hand to guide them.
Teachers are also parents,and they know that, when a child is behaving in unecceptable ways,no caring person should turn a blind eye and blame it on the government who does not know better.
Let the devil know that parents are still in charge of their children's life.
It is wrong to save a child by sparing the rod.Let us rather save them,when they can still be saved.
Bring back corporal punishment.
