There are some children you can sit down and talk to about their behavior and that's all they need. Unfortunately there are children you cannot talk to and the only thing that works is a good paddling. For those who need it and don't get it find some other ways of getting attention and usually end up on drugs and in jails and prisons where they get more than a paddling. Our system has failed our children and now we are creating monsters. My sister who is 12 years younger than me and is now in prison because my parents would not spank her. She was out of control then and she is now 42 and still out of control. Children need to be taught at an early age how to respect themselves and other people. The first thing they should teach every morning at these schools is how to treat others. They should give them everyday reminders before class begins starting in prek.

1/2 inch holes in the paddle will hurt more and gain more respect for the instrument of behavior modification..

When I was a child I was spanked both at home and at school; I couldn't get enough of it at the time. Stupid is as stupid does as the saying goes. I think if we get around to spanking the people to line up first are the adults.

I have a cousin that is a Principal there, Heather Newman Lipira, She is the Daughter of Louise Amis Newman and Hershel Newman of Ocala. Of course She never calls her poor Mother, Shame on her. I could NEVER do my Mother that way. I guess Mrs. Lipira thinks She is better than Her' own Mother. I figure She will enjoy paddling.:(

Sounds like a neighbor of ours. His Parent's were both Teachers and if He got in trouble at school and if He got paddled at School, His' Mother would take him out on the front porch and paddle Him. My heart just went out to Him. I thought it was terrible His Mother would do that. He never did anything bad enough to be paddled at school or home. Just makes me sad thinking about it. I think paddling is demeaning.
