The paper discusses how John Locke's theory of reward and punishment is founded on the link not between the child and society but between the father and society. The paper further discusses how "the child" actually refers to the son, and the training is intended to prepare the son for his future active role in the society. The paper analyzes how Locke is opposed to corporal punishment, but the alternative which he proposes amounts to psychological abuse. The worst aspect of the theory is that society then continues the training in a pattern of praise and condemnation.
