12 Bumps

If YOU were paddled in school and survived please BUMP!!!

Borrowed from another post.

Notice I said paddled no beaten or abused. Also did we not get spanked or punished at home if we had to get paddled at school?

  • Heck, I had a paddling everyday at school. I refused to do homework. Then, I would get it at home too. LOL I am not some loner, depressed, low self-esteem person...

  • Our teachers proudly displayed their paddles. Some even had holes in them. So, here's your bump. I seem pretty well adjusted and I had more than my share of the paddle.

  • No I was never paddled and if I ever find out a teacher has hit my child with a paddle he/she better look out.

  • i was a kid that would have been emotionally damaged if my teachers had hit me. i had a very unstable homelife and school was my safe place. i am a teacher and so glad we arent expected to hit children. it is morally wrong. how can you build a trusting relationship with a student while you assult them. i know - you all survived - that doesnt make it the BEST WAY!

  • I was not only paddled at school, but that was the best part - when I got home I was beat & grounded on top of what the school did...

    And guess what, I lived!

  • I wasn't paddled at school, but my brother was...I don't necessarily agree with paddling as discipline, but am against no discpline at all....
