Our Elementary school gives students detention which entails staying in at recess or lunch as a punishment! How do you feel about this? and do you think it works?
I guess I don't like the term "detention" for elementary school kids!! LOL :) I remember them in high school.
My kids bring home the detention slip for me to sign and they sort of shrugg it off like it is no big deal.

Detention is really like a time-out, and works best if it takes children away from something they enjoy or if it keeps them after school. It works for children who need a wake-up call. Children with behavioral or psychological issues need additional intervention. Detention alone won't do it.
