"Spare the rod, spoil the child"

You hear "Spare the rod, spoil the child", meaning if you don't correct your child, they'll grow up spoiled, arrogant, thinking they can get away with anything, etc. It's in the Bible.

Proverbs 13:24 NLT

Those who spare the rod of discipline hate their children. Those who love their children care enough to discipline them.
