Ouch! Biblical advice on parenting:

Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. (Proverbs 22: 15)

… and …

Withhold not correction from the child: for if thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die. Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and shalt deliver his soul from hell. (Proverbs 23:13-14)

The Puritans followed this advice: they used to attempt to beat the hell out of their children too. (That’s not a joke; that was their actual theory.)
