"I could have been one of those kids that was lost in the streets without the discipline instilled in me by my parents and other relatives," said NFL Star player Adrian Peterson. "I have always believed that the way my parents disciplined me has a great deal to do with the success I have enjoyed as a man."
With these words, Adrian Peterson explained and justified his use of a tree branch to discipline his 4-year old-son. But, is he correct? Does harsh discipline and corporal punishment really help build character, success and good citizenship?
