Im not a carebear, or was a child spared of a spanking or a smack for acting up. However that being said, I cant see how this is considered not to be
abuse by some in this thread. All I see here are children handing in papers and then being hit....what happened to grades? Is it less smacks for
Lets say I swore when i was younger. My punishment would be to suck on a bar of soap and I would get a spanking. My mom used her bare hand, and for
me it was embarrassing and not pain. Hmm come to think of it, I made sure not to let her hear me swear again, so the punishment only happened once
lol But I also learned that public places should not be a place for spouting cusses for all to hear.
There obviously must be a line drawn somewhere, but who is going to draw that line, and where will it stop. Is raising your voice at a child in the
future going to have child services at your door?
I can see both sides here, and I think its a very thin line to draw between abuse and discipline. While I have no ill feelings to my mother, resent
her in anyway, or am scarred and traumatized by spankings (I was a good kid so spankings were slim to none) someone else in the exact situation could
feel that way.
Grounding does work, as long as you make it so its not an enjoyable experience in ones room playing with legos lol.
At the end of the day, what this teacher did seems to be mean and intentional, and not involved in discipline. If there is something wrong with their
work, theres a problem with the teacher and their methods. Hes hitting children for his own failures.
