The 'time out' is an embarrassing, foolish, liberal, ineffective form of discipline for children. This generation of children has absolutely no respect for authority, a sense of entitlement, a lazy disposition chock full of video games, cell phones, skateboards, X-boxes, Wii, Gamestations, computer fixations and absentee parents. I'm sorry, but these kids will never learn anything regarding discipline, respect or boundaries until someone properly reprimands these dirtballs, namely their parents, by whipping their asses. Not only are parents dropping the ball on discipline because of the new liberal ideal, but the liberal ideology has prevented teachers from enforcing appropriate discipline, and ultimately this has driven talented teachers with principles out of the business. This is the biggest weakness and threat to the future of our country. Kids that are taught that the only repercussions of bad decisions and debauchery is sitting in the corner for 10 minutes. The liberal ideology is crippling the principles of discipline and respect of our next generation. This is complete bullshit. Parents that know when and how to discipline their kids are the only ones that are capable of raising a responsible child.
