    I don't like this and I don't believe it works. As a grandfather and father of three adult children I always used love and kindness to teach my kids. They all grew up to be well adjusted excellent citizens and parents. I know other parents who were more disciplinarian in their approach to child raising and their children had and still have problems. I should add that I grew up in a country, and at a time, where corporal punishment (beating with a cane) was practised - it never changed anyone's way of thinking, only their behaviour due to fear. I received corporal punishment a number of times and it never persuaded me to change my attitude.

    I never understand why this show did the kind of stuff they’re doing in the first clip of this video. I mean how they have a lot of the girls get berated by male inmates. Or in vice versa, when they have boys get berated by female inmates. If you’re trying to scare kids straight by showing them what is supposed to be the harsh reality of jail, what sense does it make to do steer a kid away from a path that is impossible for them to go down to begin with? She’s a girl, she’ll never end up in a male prison. And the boys will never end up in female prisons. Like it doesn’t matter if these are the worst kids ever and end up doing life in prison, the opposite sex’s prison is an environment is one they’ll never end up in no matter how bad the kid turns out to be later in life.

    I get that the inmates are trying to warn the kids about how terrible life is in prison,but in my opinion screaming in their face and making them scared isn't the right way..they should be nice with them even though they're trying to show them reality(just my opinion) Plz don't hate with my opinion

    nah you're entirely right lmao but depending on the type of kid they may need that sort of roughness to be put down on them to really get it through their heads because, if you be just simply nice with SOME of them nothing much is going to change about them really
