  1. It’s ignorant attitudes like Jason’s why our kids’ psyches are so messed up. I wonder how flogging them would help them? Why must violence always be the answer for every perceived “misbehaviour”? All the flogging that parents have meted out to their kids in SVG how has it helped SVG to become a less violent and crime ridden place? Those kids obviously need a whole lot of help, but we don’t help them by beating them.
