Let the school PADDLE them!!!

I just do not understand. I recently saw a social media post from a parent that their child is not behaving in school so they are going to go to school and "let the principal paddle" them.

Maybe, I'm old school, but if a child needs discipline for continued behavior, why isn't the parent issuing consequences at home instead of going to the school and "making" the P punish the kid.

I would have had 10x the punishment at home than any I would have received at school.

Because people don't want to take responsibility. Also, I'm sure the parents don't want to be seen as the bad guy, so just let the school deal with it.

Imagine sitting in a meeting with counselors, teachers, and the parent of a student. The mother in total seriousness asks us "How do you expect me to control my son at home if you can't control him here?" (at the high school)

I once had a studentís dad ask me to keep his son after school everyday and help him practice his weak skills. Then he asked me to go home and make the student go to bed on time! Seriously! Iím all for helping kids and going the extra mile but parents can get their own kids to go to bed on time.

Bad parenting - we shouldn't be surprised

If the parents aren't disciplining at home, it's no surprise to see them misbehave at school. Parents who think the school should fix it are pretty delusional because that won't fix it. We are teachers - not parents/counselors/therapists. It's not our place or our expertise to do all that.

Outsourcing parenting

I once had a parent ask me to talk to their student about brushing their teeth at night. The student wouldn't do it, and for some reason they thought I could help with that. A colleague once said, "Parents want to outsource parenting."

... I will come to your house and get your little darling to brush his teeth and go to bed on time (your job) IF you do my job and take my place in the classroom tomorrow. Do we have a deal?

I've had a parent ask me to spank/pinch their four year old before. I've also had a parent ask me to do a lesson on how to wipe your own bottom . Yeah.....no, did not and will not ever happen.

A new student joined my 3 year old preschool class. The mom called me and asked if the school used capital punishment with the children.

I said I thought maybe she meant corporal punishment? And absolutely, no we don't.

My assistant realizing what the mom mistakenly asked, later commented..oh, so we won't be using the baby electric chair this semester?

NO! No spanking by anyone!

I can't believe it's 2019, and with all the science-backed research, some believe that hitting a child is okay. No form of hitting is okay. None. What happens when you hit an adult? You go to jail for assault. No matter how light the hit was. Hitting a child is way worse. The science has PROVEN spanking contributes to emotional and psychological damage. I was spanked as a child, and I've never forgotten how it made me feel and how the spanking has forever had a HUGE negative effect between me and my parents. I vowed to do better with my own children, and I do, every day. Once you know better, you do better. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/11/05/h...atricians.html
