For the old generation, they trend to do physical punishment when their children make mistakes. They believe that the best way to educate children is to threaten them and then correct their wrong behaviors. But the old way to educate kids is out of date. It is better to guide children to realize their mistake would bring what kinds of horrible results. The way the adults nurture them decides what personality they will have when they grow up. Violence will not solve problems but only brings more negative sides. So we need to be reasonable instead of emotional.
