i heard mississippi brought back the paddle but you can opt out your child if you choose. do you agree with this method of punishment or would you opt out your child?
when i was in elememtary school paddling still existed till i was in the 4th grade, then it was taken out and afterschool and saturday detention was put in place of it.
i think i would opt my child out simply because i think the teachers would abuse the privlage of sending a child to the principals' office to be!
afterschool and saturday detention seems more logical. kids want to play and enjoy their sports, to hae to serve detention instead i think is a better lesson learned.
what do you think?
