Spare the Rod, Spoil the Child

bàng tóu chū xiào zǐ zhù tóu chū wǔ nì
Spare the Rod, Spoil the Child Scroll

棒頭出孝子箸頭出忤逆 literally translates as:
A stick (or switch) produces filial sons; chopsticks produce disobedient [ones].

Figuratively, this means:
Strict discipline produces dutiful children, whereas indulgence produces disobedient ones.

This proverb is very similar to this English proverb:
“Spare the rod and spoil the child.”
