Xiao Baiyou, a Hong Kong businessman, described in his parenting memoir how he had "beaten" his 3 children into Peking University, one of the most prestigious universities in China. "A cane is a good staff. It hurts no bones but it stings badly. This pain shall be remembered," said Xiao, who has been dubbed "Wolf Dad," after "Tiger Mom" Amy Chua, and sparked heated debates on parenting methods. Do you approve of beating, the strict parenting style advocated by Wolf Dad?

Pro view (1)

Yes. Beating is effective for parents in disciplining their children to teach them right from wrong and help them avoid problems later in life.

Con view (7)

No. Corporal punishment humiliates children. Such parenting methods can only force children into blind obedience.

    That depends on how's the beating and at what time. And how the parents show their love to their children. If you beat your 16-year old son and never show you love him, he may leave the family.

    That doesn't depend, you just don't beat anybody, much less your children.

    Violent beating of children is criminal.
    Man created god before god created man and the world has been in turmoil ever since. Dots freak some people out - so they join them with lines that aren't really there.
