Before in many nations, I suppose, the militry training was made compulsory to boys. Soon after their basic study they would do two years of compulsory military traing obligatory to all. Many youth thak today that they had this training. When the youth grow up, they have full of energy. If they have vigorous physical exercises then they shed out their passion. If they do not do hard work and physical activity, they they end up with multiple vices. Those who went for compulsory military training, they were exposed to many hardship and deprivation. Breaking up of rules would attract for the severe punishment. One had told me that for every foult they were asked to run 10 times around the huge ground without stoppin. They were given limited buckets of water with which they had to manage all their needs. They were rigorously taught how to withstand the difficulties and the deprivation. As a fruit of this training when they entered their family they knew to manage their family with serenity withstanding all sorts of hardship

Military training over here was never for every boy in the family. Only for the eldest and even an other brother could do the duty of a brother. Now our army is a volunteer/job. So you are not send over to it. I think this is a good thing. And no I don't like my son to join the army. There is no need to have an army. To interfere in other countries their policies and to feel free to go kill and rape and robb for no reason. I also don't like the brainwash part of soldiers. My son is way too good and to smart for it. And if it would ever come to a war everybody has to fight. No matter if you are male, female, old or young or still a kid or handicaped. It always been like that in the past and it will be like that in the future as well. BTW I know many soldiers and they are not the greatest family fathers or husbands at all. Esp. those who never made any carreer are using a lot of violece against their wife and children. They don't know how to manage at all, they have a big lack of self esteem and are only able to follow orders! In the army you are NOT learned to manage yourself or make your own conclusions. You are teached to OBEY not matter what you have to obey under all circumstances. This means a good soldier is a machine/robot just following orders.

I think experiencing military training would be good for my kid for it might help imbibe the sense of discipline and responsibility in my child. It could also develop leadership skills and survival skills. However, I want to be reassured first that the ones who are conducting the training are doing things in a humane way. I mean, I do not want my child to undergo public humiliation because it might damage her self-esteem. I do not want her to do ridiculous tasks similar to what some fraternities do like hazing or harassing her to make her do a whim of the leader. Abusive practices should not be allowed in military training.

Each country has what they call their Military. Each trains the men,women and children in ways the feel should be done. What isn't realized is they are turned into, YES people. What I mean is no matter if it is right or not, good or bad, if they are told to do something, they do it, regardless. Reason is because they don't want to go through the repercussions of what their superiors will do to them. I call this Military "police robots" They have no feelings, how can they raise a family that way? They don't care if it is right or wrong what they do, just obey orders. This does not teach a child right from wrong. So no I don't like the way military are trained to obey. We all need a Military which knows right from wrong, doesn't lie to us, doesn't rape or hurt children. We need a military to be able to control a group without violence first. That should be the very last resort. Anyway.. military is good for its purpose, but as a family member.. they have to relearn that part of life once they walk away from it.

I love army and also want to join it one day. Military training is ofcourse hard but it trains individual for very tough work.The punishment is given so that discipline is maintained in the army. Discipline and following orders are very important components of the army. Without them army is nothing.

I think you mean "Military" training. My brother and I both had military training, and many of my friends and family members have all had military training as well. Honestly, I think that military training is good for anyone because it's survival skills that you would need to survive in the real world. Many children in my family have had military training. Also, some children need strict or stricter discipline and military training gives it to them.
