Hi aselabollegala, I was punished many times, When I was at school a day without being punished for something was very rare. I had to travel by bus and if the bus was late then I and many others arrived late in school. Even one minute late meant one or two hits with a leather belt across your hands.. A small mistake in class, talking in the lines or in class, forgetting a book, not completing homework, untidy writing, etc. etc. earned another belting or what was worse a punishment exercise that took up valuable evening time. One teacher used to come up behind me and hit me on the ear with a ruler and another would flick his finger on my ear. There was no relationship between teacher and pupils. With 40 to 50 pupils in a class the teachers had to be very firm to keep order. Times have changed.

I remember being punished in school once. Then in major trouble at home. What worries me here is that you think it is funny that you are getting into troouble. I find this very disturbing. I do not understand how you can be happy about being bad. There is nothing good about getting onto trouble. How do you expect to get anywhere in life in this day of computers when everything you do will affect your ability to get a job or attend school later. Will you be happy working a McDonalds (if they will have you) for the next 20 years. In the 70's in the USA problem children were sent to the military, but now even the military does not want to deal with your problems. You sound like my best freinds son use to and now he is in and out of prison, his life is so sad. Get a grip and get a life. Your are the only one that can control you, but if you do not the prisons will.

School days.......well its been very long time . I was rarely punished in school.I always used to be a quiet and sincere boy in my class.But there was one incident in my 7th grade where my school supervisor caught me making fun of my friend during school prayers and threatened me to throw me out of school. However when i went to the office next day she let me off with a warning. Apart from this i really cannot remeber any other event.
