    I would like to ask: do you mean that punishment and explain to them what is wrong will gain kids respect??

    So you telling me you never been caned before by your parents?
    Of course. But punishment all to often is a result of 'we can't understand them so lets just hit them' attitude. Punishment WORKS don't get me wrong, but only in certain situations and [b]as a last resort[/i]. Our society has become one that advocates the use of punishment before even thinking about alternative means, and that sucks.

    I have been caned before. Multiple times. I think I even have a scar on my nose from when the cane accidentally connected with my face. Guess what? I spent the next few years hating the hell out of my parents before I was smart enough to understand why they would do such things. Yep, I understood them before they understood me.

    No. Respect is gained not by your actions but by your intentions. If you talk to him because 'that's what they say is the right thing to do', you won't gain his respect. But talk to him because you genuinely want to get him, and you will.

    There is no quick fix.

    yes i know....but my initial notion of punishment is not repeated punishment which is dealth out often, and i understand if the parent keep dishing out corporal punishment often for little reason, that would raise a sense of resentment in the child. Im one example.

    So what im trying to say, yes, dish out corporal punishment when it deemed fit, not all the time for little issues. And i think for the youngster to punch an elderly, he deserves some corporal punishment. All the excuse of "sorry i was not in the right mind" doesn't work here. You cant just say sorry and get away with it all the time.

    I hope his father would dish out his own old skool disciplinary stuff. If i am the father, i would be ashamed to have a son who behave this way.
    My personal thought?

    Ministry of Home Affairs shld pass this legislation:
    - The definition of a 'minor' shld be anyone under the age of 12yrs old.

    EDIT: - Definition of Juvenile crimes are from 6yrs old to 15yrs old

    - Anyone who's 16yrs and above shld be liable for their actions and be punished in accordance with the full brunt of criminal penal and civil code of law if they are found to break any law. Including offences that require rotan, life imprisonment and capital punishment.

    - Reformative Training Centre, Boys Town and Girls Town to be dissolved and merged into a single entity called "Changi Youth and Reformative Prison" located next to Changi Maximum Security Prison

    - Voting age to be maintained at 21yrs old.

    - All classes of vehicle license can only be taken by ppl above 21yrs old as of 1st Jan [insert year]

    Haha, don't get me wrong guys, I never said let the guy go for what he did. Apologies if I gave this notion. My arguments were mainly against those people who blindly promoted corporal punishment without even thinking why. I think the guy should be punished just to remind others that they can't get away with it. Setting an example, if nothing else. In a world where the only people living on it were everyone involved in that situation, he should probably go unpunished because it could have been a moment of one-off stupidity (he would of course be told that should he do it again, there will be severe consequences). But this world isn't one just populated by those people, and examples unfortunately have to be made.

    Balances have to be found. I think parents who become servants to their kids are just plain sad, but so are children who become servants to their parents.

    this i agree with you.

    i frown on rude kids.
    and i frown on teachers who bully kids.
    A balance should be found whenever possible, but that's hard. If only more kids/parents/teachers were sensible in today's society.

    The drug industry in South America routinely practices what you mentioned here. The result always involves a big number followed by a 'dead'
