‘Licks’ didn’t hurt me
October 24, 2013
I'm not exactly sure what to make of this whole ‘not wanting any caning' garbage to be allowed at any school. There's been incidents involving girls assaulting other girls at schools and, nothing's been done about the situation. The only incident I've known about is the CedarBridge incident where in the end, those boys ended up having to wear ankle bracelets and were not allowed back at the school. One got off because he packs groceries and the victim has since moved to another school.
How are you going to allow a girl who has a history of assaulting other girls back onto school grounds to trouble not only the one she assaulted but, other girls as well? How are you setting an example by allowing unruly children (in this case two girls who attend different schools) to do as they please at a school, because you feel correcting them is wrong and yet, won't even spank him or her at home or expel each one of those girls? What sense does that make?
Have I ever had ‘licks' when I attended school? Plenty! Did it change me in the school? Put it this way, I ended up graduating from secondary school as opposed to being expelled for fighting someone which, is what a lot of these unruly students are going to have to be for, their ungentlemanly or unladylike behaviour. How are you going to just leave both the teacher/the security guard defenceless by saying, you're dismissing corporal punishment from all schools?
Although I admit any teacher who uses excessive force to discipline a child, should be dealt with in a harsh way because of the abuse but, giving that child ‘simple licks' because they swore at a teacher, should be allowed and any parent who disapproves, should be questioned as to what goes on in that child's life at home. Obviously any home trained child is less likely going to react in a school that has discipline.
TAKE AWAY CORPORAL PUNISHMENT IN SCHOOLS, & TEACHERS/STUDENTS WHO CAUSE NO TROUBLE, WILL HAVE A LOT TO FEAR
