they are just children. humiliating them is not the answer. humiliating them only teaches them how t ...

Good idea. Teach them that the more they steal, the more love they get.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Maybe the police wouldn't help much, from what I've read about the police in China.

You read a lot of western propaganda.

You know that's not what I meant. I meant they should have a heart-to-heart talk with the boys. Don't humiliate them, it's not necessary. I didn't say shower them with gifts for stealing.
Human nature is good and can be trusted.

I know what you meant. They deserve love for stealing. This enforces more stealing.

Punishing people is the easy way out. If it really worked, our world wouldn't be in such a mess. Because I would bet, everyone on Earth has been punished one way or another before?

For children, I don't think such punishment is necessary. Maybe they can work it off. You definitely don't need to humiliate children to teach them. Allow them to suffer natural consequences, yes.

edit. You often speak for China. Oh my God, don't tell me that Chinese people favor such humiliating punishment.

It didn't work. From the Chinese websites I read that these kids are regular trouble makers in their village, killing and stealing stock and other kind of things. Anyhow I agree that maybe they need a little bit more attention from their elders.
I have seen many of these cases in our frequent summer visits to China's poorer areas. Schooling is one of the basics we trty to work with. Teach them to love learning knew skills and half the poroblem is gone!
