Would you let your your kids school give your child spanking? This would be done by someone of the same gender as your child. Personally I wouldn't let anyone spank either of my children at all. It's not the place of my child's school to punish my child in that way at all. I don't even spank my own children at home.

At home, there are some times that I will spank my children, but this is something that I do reserve for times when they are putting themselves or others in imminent danger. My best friend also knows that she is allowed to spank the children in these situations as well. However, when it comes to school, I don't think that spanking is appropriate at all. If I was to find out that either of my children had been spanked at school, I would be fit to be tied. It wouldn't even matter to me if the person that did the spanking was the same gender as my child or not.

I agree that it's inappropriate for the school to do it even if they feel it's okay for what the child has done. They should allow the parents to choice the punishment that they feel fit. They can kick my kids out but do no harm to my children physically or I would be very mad.

Hi friend, i am not interested in beating or blaming my kids, i believe that we don't have the ability to change our kids by beating or blaming, so i never spank them, as well as i never allow their teachers to spank them

Blaming I didn't mention blaming. A punishment is a consequence to a negative behavior. Children need punishment as part of knowing what they did wrong, that is part of being a parent. Yes spanking is hitting and no teacher shouldn't touch a child like that ever.

I don't think that children should be spanked at all. If parents cannot control their child's behaviour in other ways than by using violence towards them then they should be made to attend parenting classes in order to improve their techniques so that they can teach their child which is the best way to behave. Schools should be allowed to discipline a child in exactly the same way that a parent should, as they are responsible for the child while they are in their care, but the parents should not be using violence so there is no way that the child should be able to experience that in school.

Well by law they don't count spanking as violence. I agree that it is because I feel yes there are other ways to punish an child for there bad behavior and I feel the school shouldn't punish a child other then kicking them out of school or suspending them. Anything that isn't harmful to the child and there development.

I agree with all of you. I do no think it is right for anybody to spank another persons child. I do not spank my children and I will not allow anybody else to do it. I know there are many people out there who uses this form of discipline but it is not the way I like too. If people choose to spank their child then they should be the only one able to do it. I do not condone those who spank, but I feel there are many different ways people can correct bad behavior. It may take time and effort but to me it is better then spanking.

I agree with you. That is how I feel. I don't spank my kids and I will never do that and I would never allow anyone to do so to my children. That is my right as there parent to choice to be this way. I feel it's the right of the parents to choice how they want to punish there children and the school shouldn't be part of that at all. They can kick my out of school but do no physical harm to my child or any child.

I quite agree with you. Physical disciplinary action precipitates a traumatic experience to a child, and much more instilling the idea of physical harm could cause one to do things properly is an annoying and disrupting act of dominance over others, thus creating more problems in the future for the child.

Probably they can yay yes it would cause harm and they can't say it won't. I think it's the job of the parents to do the disciplining not the school. They have the right to kick the kids out of school that is it in my book. I would have to be crazy first before I let them touch my kids like that.

You are right, no one got the right to spank children, but the children who are pampered too much by their parents needs little bit of teachings from the school authorities.

School authorities have no rights to touch a child and I would never give them the right to do so either. I don't care if a kid is spoiled rotten that is the job of there parent not the school to do physical harm to a child. I rather them be kicked out of school for being bad.
