No, I didn't tell my parents, I was to embarassed to. That in itself makes my point about paddling. There are to many freaks and perverts out there who seem so normal on the outside. Who knows what kind of gratification they would get out of paddling young girls or boys for that matter.
"Poppy" I am sorry for your bad experiences in school. My daughter told me that her high school teacher (male),(she was in 10th grade) would give every one a "lick" each if they were late for class (as they walked in class). After I got on to my daughter for being late for class I went and had me a little chat with this pervert and trust me...that ended the little "love taps" he would give to the young ladies.

When I was in school, if you walked into a room with a paddle hanging on the wall or just laying on a desk, the message was clear. Without saying a word, the teacher got their point across.

I don't agree with teachers or parents being able to beat their children at will.look at the states it's illegal in,and i'll bet they turn out better than ours do.in theory,if a parent could and did wait until they were no longer angry and paddled then out of love not madness,it would be different.but i am not aware of many that did it that way,it's you made me angry now you take this you little blanity-blank.when we hit our kids we are teaching them that if they are angry and someone does something they don't like,and they are bigger then it's ok to whip anyone.I am not being a hyporcrite,i fell for this crap when i was raising my kids too ,but that don'tmake it right.we want our kids to behave because it's the right thing to do to get by in life,not because they are afraid of us.we can't be with them all the time,how they will act out on their own is what is important.you can't teach kids violence is wrong if we believe it's right for us but not them.also you would be suprised what a 3 day suspinsion[nsr]can do if all music,movies and money is taken away from them during that time.

I agree with you completely. Your teaching your child the wrong lesson, when you hurt your child. And don't everybody jump on the train and say were not hurting our children. Because there is not one of you out there that can say they got paddlings and they felt good. You would be lying.

In my opinion a teacher that would paddle would take a big risk of being taken to court on abuse charges. Parent and kids would love to think they could get a big settlement out of a teacher.

The paddle gave kids a reason to pay attention to their behavior, now kids have no reason to pay attention to behavior. In school suspension since Laurel County has no alternative school, is a joke. They simply get a break for misbehaving.

I got a paddling in every grade starting with 1st up til grade 9. Grades 10-12 at LCHS they would just suspend or call your parents, at least that was the case with me.

I had some teachers, a Mrs Jones if I remember correctly at the Junior High, she would make you bend over and grab your ankles so you had that butt stretched as tight as possible. I also remember some of the paddles had holes drilled in them for aerodynamics and one teacher at Keavy, Mrs Haverly, used a big wooden spoon.

I also came from one of those families that if you got it at school, you would have one waiting on you at the house. We walked a straight line. Heck back in my day, if you did something wrong the whole community would beat you before you got home and call your parents and let them know you were on your way. Now we are afraid to even say anything to our kids, afraid that someone is watching us and might disapprove, it's ridiculous.

"Beating their kids at will"? There is a BIG difference between a whipping and a beating. It's people like you that makes it hard on parents that try to correct their children the right way and make them mind. People like you have whippings and beatings confused. There is nothing wrong with whipping your child when they do wrong as long as you whip them the right way. I got it when I was a kid and mine gets it now if needed. It never killed me and it's not killed mine either. I think that if children still got paddled in school it would straighten these kids up. Right now, out of school suspension is just a vacation for them...that is days they can sleep in. Bus suspension half of the time is another vacation because the parents can't or won't bring them to school once they are suspended, in school suspension is a joke...sit in a room all day and do work or goof off (depending on who your teacher is) what kind of punishment is that? Kids have control over the schools. Not the teachers or staff. I understand if "Jane" comes into class and aggrevates you all day, by the time you paddle her you may be pushed to the point of paddling to hard but I think the paddling should be reinstated and designate someone else in the building (such as the principal) that isn't in the class all day with the student to paddle the students. That is one problem in society today. Kids are taking over and everyone "owes" them something. I say bust their asses and show them who the bosses are. If you don't want your kid paddled at school then if you teach them the right way at home then chances are when they go to school your not going to have to worry about them getting paddled at school because they know how to act when they go to school.

I came from the old school like you did. Didn't hurt me none to get a few butt bustings at school. I deserved them and got by with even more that I did deserve. That was life then and we accepted it as that...LIFE!

I think it should stay banned. kids get blamed for stuff they don't do everyday. It would not bw right for them. I do not like the thought of my child getting hit by anyone. If a parent feels it is wrong to spank their child then a school should not have a right to do any different.

Well then, maybe parents like you that don't think their children need to be disciplined need to homeschool their kids so you can deal with their behavior all day. Trust me, school employees have other things to do than to sit and falsely accuse your child of something they didn't do. Children are not angels and most of the time they are guilty. I'm not saying it never happens (that a child gets accused of something they didn't do) but what I am saying is more times than not when a child is accused of something they have done it. Part of the problem with today's kids is parents like you. "If you spank one then it is abuse". No it isn't abuse. Abuse is when you beat one, don't feed one, yell at one, abandon one, leave one laying in a baby bed all day, etc. There is a big difference between a beating and a whipping.

Well first off beating and whipping a child are 2 COMPLETELY different things! I was whipped as a child and I am 21 on my own, have a child, a family, and I dont get into trouble like some people my age who are out robbing people, staying doped up, and who in the hell knows what else!!! There is nothing wrong with correcting your child with a whipping! It didnt kill me and it wont kill mine!!! I was well behaved bc I knew that if I wasn't that I would be punished and it wasnt that I was afraid of my parents I had a great relationship with my parents and STILL do! Im not going to say I felt good after a whipping then but I appreciate the fact that my parents disciplined me that way NOW!! But my child is NOT OUR CHILDREN SHE IS MINE so if you dont mind I will discipline how I see fit not you and im not breaking the law like I said befor I punish, explain why, then love and there is nothing wrong with that so dont sit on your perch judging those of us who choose to WHIP (let me infasize the word WHIP not beat) our children ok thanks!

Yes but you are a parent that's child probably wouldn't get into trouble at school because you punish her at home. The problem is with parents that don't give a rat's ass how or what their kid does at school as long as they are out of their hair. They expect the teachers to take care of all the displine but they will be the first one on a teacher's back for trying.
Thanks for your input! Made me feel like an accomplished mommy! LOL
