Your view: Children need discipline

-

I have read in the news how people are upset over a young child being put in handcuffs in Florida for hitting his teacher.

Hopefully, this will be a deterrent for future actions with this boy. He is a very young boy who assaulted his teacher.

Please keep in mind this was not the only time. Should not teachers have a safe work environment too?

People are so worried about how criminals are being treated and forget the victims. Maybe if these kids get disciplined at an early age you could prevent them from walking into a school later and shooting someone.

This boy was mad at a teacher for correcting him. What happens when he is 12, 14 or 17, when someone else makes him mad?

You are so worried about your safe places, bathrooms, feelings, sexual identity, etc., but you are missing the heart of the matter. Children need rules, parents need to be parents.

You do not give them a pill. You have a lot of young people out their being prescribed drugs because the child is depressed, overactive, poor concentration and more.

We have an over medicated generation that lacks coping skills. Why?
