A good slap never did me any harm
HAVING read your article 'Smacking your children can give them cancer', I consider it to be the biggest load of tripe I have ever read in my life. Furthermore, it would be interesting to know just who paid for this ill-informed information.
It's people like Professor Michael Hyland and his team, Councillor Nicky Williams and David Smale of the National Union of Teachers, who are responsible for the reason why so many delinquents are now running about our streets, who have no respect for authority, and who are also responsible for the thousands of kids who get excluded or expelled from school simply because of the ban on corporal punishment which was brought about by these sort of people.
So, and using David Smale's words, 'excluding or expelling children from school' Mr Smale 'also' does not make a child learn, as indeed does Asbos as they are treated as a badge of honour.
Having had two grown-up grandchildren who have both been to rehabilitation centres for drugs, one of which had a psychosis and subsequently took his own life, I can only tell the above people that I sincerely wished that those responsible had not 'spared the rod' so to speak.

I also certainly don't believe there are such illnesses as ADHD and autism and believe it's just something that parents and the above like to hang their hat on when there is no other reason for the child's behaviour, when most of it can simply be put down to bad behaviour when a smack or the cane would have easily rectified the situation.
The trouble with people like Professor Hyland and co, is that they will tell you that you cannot smack your child or use corporal punishment, but repeatedly fail to tell you what other remedy parents should use to keep unruly children in check. Hence and why schools are now driven to using exclusion because they cannot do anything else.
I am from a generation who experienced a good slap from parents and the cane from school, and like many millions in this country will testify, it did them no harm, and I am sure as hell are going to believe it causes cancer regardless of what Professor Hyland and his team think.
People like these have cause irreparable damage to the structures and personal discipline that this once proud nation of ours had.
