SHARE YOUR OPINION WITH ME PLEASE: Okay, so Lucas' school rule's handbook states that "unless you send a written request" stating you will not allow them to "paddle" your child (ages K thru 4th grade) they will do so when the child continually misbehaves and when they see fit. They will paddle them with two witnesses present, with as many strikes to butt according to severity of misconduct, and tell you about it within 3 days!!! How do you feel about that?? This makes me so uncomfortable. I plan on sending that letter telling them they better not! I am all for whatever works for each family AT HOME, but not a stranger and definitely not paddling til they feel it is enough!!
BTW, we live in Kentucky where county schools are still allowed to paddle kids as a form of discipline.
