You know d Bible says spare the rod and spoil the child. Most children fear that 'rod'!
Its good to flog ur child. Later in life they will appreciate it. Nevertheless, helping them to see what they wrong and why it is wrong, will help them to appreciate ur discipline. It will help them become wiser children.
no it only makes an african child stronger and more stubborn
constant floggin can harden the child, but talking to the child and appealing to his emotions is a good antidote!
