From Bloodletting: A Marine Grunt Goes to Med School comes a prescription for “Gunny therapy” for whiners and brats.
When some “out of control teen” comes marching out on stage dressed like a Harry Hines Hooker, flicking people off, and calling her mom a bitch, she needs Gunny therapy. She needs someone to come along, smack her briskly about the ears, and berate her for her poor behavior until she finally figures out that the beatings will continue until morale improves.
This child doesn’t need to talk about his feelings. He doesn’t need peer counseling. He doesn’t need “a self-affirmating environment producing synergistic moods conducive to realizing his full personhood.” He needs someone to stand tall and give him a good, swift kick in the ass.
Don’t try this outside the Marine Corps.
