My sitter told me the other day that a teacher at my DD's school (thankfully its not her teacher) is punishing kids by making them run 4 laps if they forget to do their homework. These are 4th graders mind you. I thought that would be illegal. I know if my DD was in her class we'd have a serious problem. What would be your reaction to this?

I agree the children need consequences. I don't agree that its the teachers that should be giving them those consequences. And in some instances running that much can hurt a child. I know if my DD ran that much she would have severe cramping later. She has bowed legs. Some running is fine. But if overdone we are up all hours of the night massaging her legs to relieve cramping.
