A National Party representative is calling for the return of corporal punishment in schools after a gang of teenages wreaked havoc over the weekend in the small Far North town of Kaikohe. The gang, which consisted of children as young as 11, robbed a liquor store and vandalised a petrol station. But the Chair of the National Party's Kaikohe branch, Alan Price, says the underlying reasons for such youth disobedience is down to a lack of physical discipline, even going as far as saying it's a form of child abuse not to raise children with discipline. 95bFM reporter Adam Jacobson speaks with Julia Ioane, a Clinical psychologist who specialises in the area of youth justice, child behaviour and youth mental health about the subject, to really find out if there is any scientific backing to the calls for a return to physical discipline in the school system.
