    The world would be such a huge freaking mess if children had no supervision.

    Children are individuals, yes. They are also inexperienced, foolish, and incapable of seeing the immediate or distant consequences to their actions. This is literally an impossibility given the development progress of their brains. Human brains do not reach full development until around 25 years of age.

    To answer OP's question, it would be cruel and negligent to not discipline or demonstrate proper behavior to the child. A slap on the wrist at three will save them from a world of hurt when they get their behind handed to them in a bar fight at twenty-three because they were never taught what is right and wrong.

    Children need discipline and guidance. This is seriously primal, cats nip at their kittens if they play too rough, and show them how to hunt.
