- kids will listen up the first time - Make an example of a kid who disobeys - Gets you respect if your willing to throw down. - Alot less day dreaming and texting if they get beat ... and... given the legal principle that one cannot consent to assault, corporal punishment is probably a criminal act - we just need a few million dollars to run a case to the Supreme Court, kids learn not to get caught, and never to own up, it's OK for a big person to hit a little person, folks in power make the rules, and enforce them with violence, and people who are brutalised as children are more likely than not to brutalise their own children.

Why did corporal punishment start?

Corporal punishment (i.e.: physical punishment) has probably always existed since humans began to live together in groups in some semblance of social order and civilization.
