There's obviously other ways to teach them, but seeing how most of these white kids are nowadays, they should've gotten a belt. They wouldn't have done half the shit they're doing now if they had gotten their ass whipped.
Getting a belt to the ass shows authority. Lack of authority = anarchy = doing whatever the fuck you want to do. You do what you're told to do. You're told to do the right thing, but if your parents have no authority over you, you just shrug it off and continue fucking up.
I never said it specifically reinforces positivity, it more so pushes the negativity out. When you fuck up bad, you get the belt.
I don't understand how this makes no sense to you.
