  • NEVER - they would have to lock me up if anyone touched my child.

  • Absolutely not

  • No I would never send my child there. I don't want some person I don't know paddling my child. They make think my child needs to be spanked over something that I wouldn't think would deserve that type of punishment and that just wouldn't fly with me.

  • Absolutely not! I remember getting a paddling when I was in the 4th grade because I chose to go to the bathroom after recess! It was VERY demeaning and humiliating with all th kids snickering. I will NEVER forget that teachers name. Corporal punishment should never be used on a child.

  • She did, lol.  True story.  My sister was bullied in school.  She was standing on top of the toilet to hide from some girls in the bathroom stall.  To balance herself she was holding onto the door.  Silly ass.  They could see her hands.  One of the girls pulled the door open and my sister swung on the door, lol.  Right then the teacher walked in the bathroom.  She got a paddling for swinging on the bathroom door.  She had one of those white wigs like people in the olden days would wear.  It was freaking hilarious.

  • As unreal as it seems they are still out there. IDK none of our children ever attended such a school.

  • absolutely not! there are so many other way to discipline children. Corporal punishment does not teach anything.

  • Actually, in one of my classes we did a debate and I was suprised to see that in the state of Idaho amongst other states it is legal for the principal to spank children. So I guess it is legal at my sons school, but come on they would never do that! Not there anyways.

    I guess some things never change
