The Wrong Approach to National Service

This article shows how some parents think that National Service can undo the damage caused by neglect of parents with respect to poor discipline and bad upbringing.

This writer thinks that allowing trainers to wield the cane on 18 year-olds for 12 months will do more harm than good.

We cannot expect the government to turn out model citizens if parents fail to bring up their children properly from young.

If anything we should start a NS for parents who appear to have no idea on how to discipline children.

One of the factors that contributes to delinquent children is the growing numbers of single parent families and families with too many children for each to receive enough love and attention.

Do you think a military style experience will change that?
