If we raise our children the right way, with respect and manners, there will never be a need to put hands on them. School staff gets abused by students, and when parents are called, they say they will handle it. Next day, the same student comes and laughs at the staff member, calling their names, telling them their parents did nothing. Parents do their children a great disservice when they prevent them from being punished at school for misbehaving. There must be a balance between affection and punishment.
