    I strongly believe in corporal punishment.

    My dad wouldnt even actually have to hit me. All I had to hear was "go get the belt" and I instantly vowed I would never do that again.

    Re: Grade school "whippins"

    My brother and I got into trouble once, and I was the first to get a "paddling". My brother used the time my dad was educating me to slip a board his pants. Dad saw my brother's square butt and laughed so hard my brother didn't get a "whippin'".

    All my 6th grade teacher had to do was get his paddle out and pop it in his hands a couple of times, we behaved immediately.

    Re: Grade school "whippins"

    Kids are turning into a bunch of pansies. I'm not saying we should beat the hell out of them, but things like taking dodge ball out of school and not keeping score at athletic events set these kids up for failure. Once they get to high school and beyond, they can't handle losing and think everything is supposed to be fair and handed to them. When they get their first taste of defeat they can't handle it and the meltdown begins.

    Glad to see that ***** is finally filtered out...










    And yeah taking dodgeballs out of school is stupid. Spanking doesn't tramatize you for life either... take your lumps and learn from it

    Re: Grade school "whippins"

    The truly talented teachers and administrators don't need a paddle to run a good school.

    Teaching kids to solve problems by smacking someone is the last thing those kids need. Think about the potential future ramifications of that in their parenting or marital relationships.

    Before anyone says that it worked in this case, I can show you numerous cases where a bad school has been turned around with not a whit of violence. So why not scrub the intellectually lazy methods of discipline, and model using logical consequences for discipline, which is the way the real (adult) world works anyway?

    school not so much ... but at home is where it can and should be used.

    It's every parent's prerogative, but it is not needed.

    Use your head, not your hands. It's really that simple. There's nothing my kids can throw at me that I can't handle with my brain.

    He was using other methods as well, and paddling as a last resort.

    I thought it was good that he did not just paddle them, he would talk with them first and explain why they were in trouble, see if there was a deeper root cause, then paddle in a controlled, routine manner


    I like that idea a lot more than cops getting called to schools when Kids do something wrong (I hear about that on the radio entirely too often around here...)

    Cops get called when kids are dangerous or violent, not when Billy steals Jenny's eraser.
