A child whose life is full of the threat and fear of punishment is locked into babyhood. There is no way for him to grow up, to learn to take responsibility for his life and acts. Most important of all, we should not assume that having to yield to the threat of our superior force is good for the child's character. It is never good for anyone's character.

Most important of all, we should not assume that having to yield to the threat of our superior force is good for the child's character. It is never good for anyone's character. - John Holt
