Corporal Punishment was used in the home. Whereas kids today have none for themselves or others. Example a bunch of kids beating someone up just because the don't like their fashion sense or because they looked at them funny.
Fathers were authority figures to be respected and not questioned.
Children were playing outside and unsupervised for hours, sometimes until it was dark; they were camping in woods alone, climbing trees, swimming in lakes, riding bikes without helmets and pads and using dangerous tools to build tree houses! There were also less paedophiles, perverts, kidnappings, etc.
And kids knew that a drill was dangerous, now children are coddled too much, so they don't know how to use these tools. I only ever wore a helmet with my bike when i got a new one after a few months the novelty wore off.
Mothers spent their days baking; cookies, pie, brownies etc all are junk food and were fed to children quite often. Plus their meals were high in meat, fat and potatoes; very unhealthy and fattening. All food was homemade with no additives and therefore healthier than the crap we eat now dates that is pumped full of 'nutrients' 5.
Children as young as 15 were made to get jobs and even young kids had to do chores. Once they moved out they were on their own, there may have been benefits or welfare i don't know but this prepared them for the outside world and stopped them asking their mothers to clean their houses. My dad had a job at 13 as a paper boy and he was born in They were brought up to believe that sex is for marriage and making them feel guilty for having natural desires.
Trust me you didn't want to be a 14 year old unmarried mother back then. Parents gave teens as old as 16 curfews and a set bedtime. How is this cruel? This is more about protecting the child nowdays than then.
Children were disciplined just for swearing or questioning authority. As both are disrespectful and therefore a punishable offense.
They HAD to sit at a table and eat breakfast, lunch and dinner with the whole family; not only that they had to eat ALL food on their plates what if they weren't hungry? They were also punished for not washing their hands before meals did all parents have OCD back then?
It was the 's geez do you not remember history and WW2? Food was a lot more scarce then as all food was free range and therefore more expensive to rear and grow.Teens on Punishment: As parents, I know that you try “everything” to make sure we do the right thing, and when we don’t, figuring out what actually works can be complicated.
So I thought, hey, why not ask some of my contemporaries their thoughts on Parental Punishment. Gordon Brown today said that bankers who had acted irresponsibly and taken excessive risks deserved to be "punished"..
In an interview with GMTV, the prime minister said that he was "angry at. Marriage counselor, George Lutterodt is of the view that parents of the ‘kitchen stool’ sex tape girl must be punished.
Counselor Lutterodt held the assertion that the parents of the young lady needed to be punished to serve as a deterrent to other parents who showed ‘irresponsible’ behaviors in bringing up .
Saying parents should be punished for their children’s crimes is like saying that elected officials should be punished for crimes happening in their jurisdictions. It’s not a way to accomplish anything desirable.
Bullies should be helped not punished "Don't call me Ishmael" is a novel by Michael Gerard Baver. In this novel there is a lot of bullying. Bullying is repeated verbal, physical, social or psychological behaviour that is harmful and involves the misuse of power by an individual or a group towards one or more people.
Whether parents should use smacking as a form of discipline is a highly controversial and emotional debate. But why are doctors calling for physical punishment to be made illegal?
