To harsh or not?

So my kid comes home with a discipline notice. Note she's only in first grade. Her and 7 other girls had another student (boy) caught. They were pulling on his shirt choking him made his neck red and sore. Had bruises from being pinced and also they were kicking and twisting his arms! Now this is the same little boy that was a bully to them last year but in NO way is them doing this appropriate I know! They all have lunch and recess detention for the rest of the week. I on top of it have taken away everything in her room but her bed, she's lost game time, tv privlages, her smelly pencial money, gotten a spanking from me and is being made to wrtie letters of appology to the duty teacher, her teacher, the principal, the boy and to the boy's parents! The principal told them if there is a next time they would all get 3 swats to which I informed her if it happened again I would double the 3 and she would loose everything for at least 6 months!

The only thing I can see as a bit harsh, but you've already done it, is the emptying of the room.  I just say that, because that should be used as a later punishment for something abit more severe.

Not to harsh at all....I think what you are doing is great nip it in the but now, before it gets worse....I feel really bad for that little boy and I know his parents are probably fuming right now! They could have really hurt that little boy by choking him

The principle said she will swat them all 3 times? I would be fumming if my DD principle said she would swat my DD. but to answer your question, I dont think your punishment is too harsh

I was assuming that she goes to a private school & that is accepted at their school.

I think it shouldn't have happened ans I don't think YOU were to harsh. Although for a first offense I might have left our the spanking. If it was the second time I would probably spank. Also, does the school spank them? I wouldn't have that. Not at all!!!
