    Your child's teacher-spanked or paddled your child?

    I am still so shocked that this is actually LEGAL in some states. :shock:

    yeah they actually have it in the school handbook of how many licks/whips correlate with the action. Of course you have to sign a paper saying you will allow corporal punishment. But still :huh:

    I think they still do it in some of the schools here.

    Since I don't have kids and since I've been told that "people without kids make the best parents" :dry: I'll keep my opinions about discipline to myself. :D

    I don't have kids, but if I did and a teacher spanked my child, unholy hell would break loose. Laws be damned.

    Honestly though, corporal punishment was always done in the schools when I was a kid. I made it through 13 yrs of school and was never paddled because I was never a discipline problem. I guess I just figure that if kids are acting up and being disruptive and a paddling (or the threat of paddling) will solve the problem...go for it. If kids are taught to behave at home from the parents, well, then I don't think those kids or their parents will ever have to worry about paddlings. :shrug:

    Kids are too soft these days anyway. :dry:


    Ok, let the flaming begin. :cardio:

    We can agree to disagree. Besides I don't want you laughing at me 6 yrs down the road when I get all ethnic and get arrested for kicking someone's ass when they paddle my kid. :lol:

    I am not against spanking, but I dont think I would like a teacher in a school to spank my child. I thing that is something up to a parent, grandparent, etc not a 'stranger'. Mainly bc I wouldn't know what they constitute as 'spank worthy'.

    Yeah, I'm with Christian. I have a WHOLE list of things that my children aren't going to do. I did get called out at work the other day on my parenting skills. Seems that the thingy (aspirator??) that you put up a kids nose to clear the snot is supposed to be squeezed BEFORE you stick it up the kids nose. I thought you squeezed it afterwards. :scratch: Who knew?? :shrug: My kids better not ever have a cold or else they are gonna get jacked. :lol:
