“I guess you could say I did be­come a bet­ter per­son, but phys­i­cal pun­ish­ment wasn’t a big part of mak­ing me who I am to­day. How­ever, it gave me a sense of dis­ci­pline and taught me in my younger days on how to have man­ners and eti­quette, which is some­thing the world is los­ing out on. There is a limit (to phys­i­cal pun­ish­ments) as to how far it can go, and par­ents should keep in mind that their child is most likely to fol­low their ac­tions and ways.”
