    But as she tells me, what they actually taught was of no use to any one.
    Well John, I have forgotten most things that I learnt at school.
    But I bet I can still say the mass in Latin. That was one thing that was beaten into me.
    Not any use in the outside world.

    Went to Marist Brothers Catholic School in Cape Town, and the one Brother , will never forget him, Brother Basil always used the Cane on us , it was his Forte to hit us on the Knuckles for small things which was quite sore, but when it came to bigger things, he took you to the front of the class put your Head under the Table he sat at, held your Sort Pants tight pulling them up as hard as he coud and the Whack!!! on the Backside!
    This of course made one try and jump up , thus knocking your head on the bleedin edge of the Under part of the Table, so two in one ! He was a Monster!
    Oh the days of Cane and Pain! And i dont mean Mainstay Cane! LOL

    One teacher in the Junior school was a sadistic sod, he used any excuse for for dishing out punishment, he would call you out to the front
    of the class make you bend over then pull up the leg of your short trousers and use a PT slipper to give three slaps on the back of your leg,
    that stung more than the stick I can tell you, cheers

    My mother in an effort to keep me "out of her sight" put me into the local nun's school down the road rather than the state primary school which was further away.
    The nun's gave up in the end as I always "escaped" over the fence by lunchtime every day. They tried to catch me but I was quicker and they were hampered by their habits.
    Needless to say I went to the state school after that.
    Corporal punishment is never the way to go. Don't even try to convince me otherwise as I know from personal experience.
    My husband and I brought up our kids in a democratic way. This meant they learned to take responsibilty for their own actions and were given choices. It helped that we were a long way from any of our own families so free from our parental influences.
    There were lots of good educational outlets for them at that time in Perth WA. Montessori etc.
    We ourselves attended many courses to help us guide them in the right direction.
    They are good people and I see apply lots of the same techniques that we did for them so our grandkids are growing up as lovely people as well.
    It took more of our time to do this but it was rewarded by how our boys turned out so well.
    Our house was also full of the neighbourhood kids as it was a calm, caring environment for them.
    The only time they got their ears syringed was when they picked up ear infections from the local public swimming pool

    I am of the opinion that if a tougher approach was taken by some parents half of the problems in society would not be there.

    So many now have kids before they have a correct place to bring them up in, that is no permanent home, rely on the state to keep them and look after them.
    Many complain the school does not give them correct disipline training but do none at home.

    Like many on site I was born in the middle of a scrap with some in Europe and when it ended we had it tough.
    The kids of today know nothing of having to go without, bread and milk for breakfast not the Golden Arches.

    But such tough times made us stronger and I believe far better people for it.

    Yes I got whacks from several sources but it did me no harm, in fact quite the opposite.

    John there will always be the "underclass" and always will be. I don't think they are the majority, most families are better than what you describe.
    I've had many a time a patient from poor circumstances and without fail if they are treated as human beings not riff raff they do respond well. Everyone deserves respect.
    Some well to do can be quite difficult to deal with as they put themselves above others and show little respect to them.
    It's not always the circumstances they come from that counts it's how they sometimes can pull themselves out of the poverty cycle and go onto better things.
    Never ever wacked our kids, ever !!!!!! Children that visited our home from "wacked" homes always responded to our way of doing things...their parent's used to ask us why their kids went home as said "please and thankyou" that they did do at home.

    Well everyone has had a bit say on various forms of wax treatment , but the Japanese wax treatment I received and always went back for more , I found very pleasant , and before receiving a massage was always asked if you wanted it done or not, I always said yes please , it only consisted of one sharp short slap with the palm of the hand on a certain area of the body , and the wax literally jumped out of the ears. I used to let the soap dry in my ears to build up the wax quicker for an excuse to get back on the masseurs table , I insisted however on the person being young pretty and agile . JS .

    WE have a massage parlor in our town, been there for some time.
    However it has got into a bit of bother of late, apparently they are offering to some of the men massage with happy ending!!!!!
