Just for the record.
I am not against physical punishment in all situations.
I'd beat my kids for something like this too.
They'd learn not to ever do anything like that again.
This is a law that needs to be revised.
Maybe I could have grown up to be a successful mercenary instead of being a conspiracy theorist kook.
She didn't want them to go on to eventually end up in jail or worse. Now the kids will be put in foster homes and the system will possibly do more harm.
They no longer have the fear of being paddled when their disruptive behavior in the classroom is disrupting the entire class. When someone was paddled back in the day, you could hear a pin drop when the kid came back in the room. Nobody wanted to take the chance of being paddled.

Hehe.. to be honest. I don't know if this type of punishment would have only furthered my unruly behaviour. I was always hard to control. My mother didn't beat me but she had to sit on me to calm me down.. I think this is how some people handle hyperactive cats.
