The problem with corporal punishment did not start in the 60's. It started way earlier than that. During the 20's when women were given the right to vote thinking their opinion actually mattered.
I say wail on the kids to an inch of their life. There should be no 20 years on death row. The fear of death should be the motivator on people not misbehaving.
Why do you think the "gangster" mentality and lifestyle is glamourized and sought after by our youth? Shitty parenting on our part because of too much opray winfrey and doctor phil saying time out actually works and our wives believing them as the gospel. Society bears blame. We the parents bear blame. Not the teachers.
No i dont agree with schools spanking kids. Because parents need to parent their kids NOT schools. i dont need their help to discipline MY kids!
There definitely wouldn't be as many bad kids around here then. Compare now to back in the day. Who shot who in school. Hmmmm. No one.
Let someone touch my kid! Say's who? Say's Kblue!
corporal punishment was the reason why so many people stop going to school at the age of 16 ,and now they have nothing to look on as work go's maybe get a job at burger -king .. if a child is that bad in life maybe DSS sould do there job better and start chargeing there mom and dad' and most kids that are bad coem from single moms were are the dad's in there life ?
Google "a violent education" and you will see why this should not be allowed. Here you will see stories of abuse requiring hospitalization and even death. Yes, thousands of children are paddled with no injuies, but do you really want to take that chance with your child? You will also be teaching them to grown up and abuse your future grandchildren. How will that feel to know you could have prevented it? Parents who leave bruises on their children can (and often are) reported to DSS and the police and charged with child abuse. Sometimes the child is removed from the home; sometimes the parent pulls jail time. Yet a School official who inflicts the exact same injuries is immune from the law and excused? Please explain this. Every day the news has stories of school officials with physical and sexual abuse problems. Yet these are the people you want to trust with a weapon against your child? Wake up parents and do your own job of parenting so there is no longer a need for legalized child abuse in NC. NC is one of the few states still allowing and, and even so only 12 of the 100 counties still allow it.
And I pretty much turned out ok.
I'm 17 years old, and personally I have no problem with this. Suspension is the most ignorant punishment you could give along with taking possessions. Suspension is just a vacation, I know this first hand because I have family members and friends who are always suspended. I grew up receiving spankings as a form of punishment, and I think that if kids these days had a good tail whooping, they'd act like they had some sense.
I can not believe this practise is still being used. How archaic is this thinking. What ever happened to after school detention, with parent teacher conferences; or loss of priveledges at home for bad behavior. No wonder kids drop out of school. I wouldn't want to go somewhere, if I knew I might get hit for misbehaving....
I disagree with your way of thinking. It is because corporal punishment was taken away from schools that we are having the issues we're having now. We have instilled in our children the notion that they should reject anyone with any kind of authority. This began in the 1960's when government decided God was archaic and we no longer needed prayer in our schools, but didn't stop there. The next step was teachers and principles were stripped of any kind of punishment that had any kind of positive effect. Now, parents are not allowed to spank their children without threat of being jailed. I don't know why you are surprised we have the problems we have now.
Adults have to have authority to maintain an environment where children can learn. I grew up with children being spanked and most grew up to be respectful to those around them and respected themselves. I know this isn't the politically correct thing to say, but it is true. You can spank a child without being brutal.
You are joking about parent teacher conferences? Right? Most of the ones that need this is because the parents can't do it at home.
Elaine it is time to wake up. Spend some time at school and you will see what is going on.
The reason it was taken out is because some teachers did not know when to stop, and students were being hurt. That being said a litte swat on the behind to get their attention is not a bad idea. However in this day and time of the stupid lawsuits it is not practical.
Why do to a kid that which if done to an adult would get you arrested? Suspension is a much better alternative. This involves and inconveniences the parents. Maybe then, they will do their job and discipline the child.
The kids these days want to get suspend so they don't have to go to school. Their thinking is why go to school when I can stay at home and do nothing all day.
The only people who should be spanking a child are the parents. If some other adult hits my daughter in any way, they had better run. I will be no different than a grizzly bear protecting a cub. As the song goes, you better run better run...
Guest APU, you took the words right out of my mouth.
Nobody has the right to hit another persons child. EVER!!
What will you do when they attack you! This is one of the reasons why our youth act out in school. Parents like you will support them in what ever inapropriate behavior they exhibit and then come to school and attack the teachers and administrators. Look around you, why do you think the world is in the condition it is in. A lot of today's youth have no values, no respect for themselves, their parents, teachers, peers, no one, just things: Iphones, IPads, Video Games, and don't forget tattoos, piercings, etc. It frightens me to think of what the world will be like in ten years, if they have not completely destroyed it by then.
Parents like me? Do you know me? Or my method of punishing my child? Or whether my child is a bad kid? No? WHo are you to assume I'm a bad parent? I happen to have a generally well-behaved child. However, on the rare occasion when she does get in trouble, my wife and I punish her appropriately.
Who are you to assume I'm a bad parent? The school has every right to punish students. I just don't think they should be the ones to perform corporal punishment on children. That is a parent's job, not some government employee. The decision to use, or not use, corporal punishment should not be up to the government.
I never said children shouldn't be spanked, or that I don't spank my own child. I simply said that no "other adult" should be spanking my child. You did a great job jumping to the conclusion that I'm someone who lets their child get away with bad behavior.
COrporal Punishment? Are you KIDDING? Really in the 21st Century? I am a high school teacher. All we need is PARENT INVOLVEMENT. How about corporal punishment for PARENTS who won't watch their kids!
If you have a bad kid in class, and in a public school you have several, remember it's because of the parents. Try and think of the parents as zombies. The last thing you need is zombie involvement. Good kids / students are in private or home schools. Thank you for helping to keep these young zombies incarcerated until they are 18. Then, they will all be desperately needed for... or perfectly suited for... idk, help me out here, class, class, anyone, Bueller???
Parent Involvement??? Where you been?? The problem with the younger generation is that the parents see no wrong in their kids, they don't take the time or energy to keep up with them, they do not discipline them at all (it makes it too hard on the parent to enforce) and even at a young age, they let kids run wild in public places, like restaurants, and allow them to ruin everyone's evening all around them. The concept of parent involvement invokes pure chuckles from me. You've been living in la la land.
