I remember when we were in primary school when corporal punishment was the main method of correction. We dreaded to cross the teacher's or our parent's path though they usually commended those of good conduct. Even after school, we had a lingering reverence for our former teachers and our parents up to this day courtesy of the rod not being spared. This acted as a deterrent against indulging in vices, at least not in the open. This no doubt deterred most of us from addiction.
