Tough Love

Perhaps we'd have less of this if society hearkened to sage child-rearing advice ...

Perhaps a more severe variant — a Super Time-Out, if you will — should be considered, where instead of being confronted with an abstract absence of stimulation (difficult to make the cognitive leap into behavior deterrence), the child is instead thrust into a stressful survival situation. For instance, if he teases the cat, submerge him immediately in a box of spiders. He will quickly learn not to tease the cat.

Whatever it is that Society is doing clearly isn't working so good. A box of spiders could hardly make things worse.
