Would you let a teacher paddle your child?

I'm from a state where it's not rare for a child to get paddled as discipline. Do you think its okay for this to happen/how do you feel about it?

  • I would not let a teacher paddle my child and if they tried or did I'd be waiting in the parking lot with my own paddle and show them what it feels like

  • Have you ever really thought about it? What could a child possibly do in school that would warrant them getting hit by a piece of a tree by a person probably double their size and weight? Just the physics of it makes no sense. Also note that most kids who get spanked in school get spanked repeatedly which means it's NOT EFFECTIVE! It does NOT stop the bad behavior. They just hide it better and make plans to get even with the person who assaults them.

  • Yes, if they deserved it. I grew up in an era that paddled. I never needed a paddling because I wasn't a brat like some of today's kids are.

  • I think that the only one who should paddle a child is the parent.
