I just think that when a child misbehaves in school, it should be the parent that metes out the discipline. There are many parents that don't believe in corporal punishment. They don't spank their children because they prefer alternative methods of discipline. I would not want to give a teacher permission to paddle my child because I may not agree with the reason for the paddling. I think paddling might have worked in years past, but this is a different world, and I am not so sure I would trust some of these teachers judgment to give them permission to paddle my child.
Do you think it is a good idea to bring paddling back to schools?
