Not all kids.
My son gets punished twice if he gets in trouble at school. First, by his karate instructor, which is where he goes after school. Then its my turn when we get home.
Now, he doesn't get in trouble often, but when he does, he gets disciplined or punished... The only time I spank him is if he hurts his sister, or disrespects his mom. Other than that, I don't need to spank him, because he is pretty good at understanding me when I'm being serious with him
As a matter of fact, I can't remember the last time I spanked him, because for the most part, he is a good kid.
His little sister on the other hand, she's out of control
She's still a baby, but she needs a little swat on the butt often.
I was a bad kid...from the time I was born
I was belted, probably daily, and was grounded for most of my life. Not saying I was raised right or wrong, but I have a different approach with my kids.
On a side note, I've had to send some notes to school with my son, for his teacher, questioning some of the homework assignments. (on a few occasions, she sent homework for stuff they didn't even go over in class). Yeah, homework for kindergarten is a bit ridiculous if you ask me, but whatever. In one of her replies, she said that the homework assignment was a mistake, and it should have been removed from the homework calender last year
(glad she knows what homework assignments she is sending home
) She ended the letter by saying it is good to see a parent going over the homework with their kid. (something along those lines) This leads me to believe that some/many of the kids in his class are NOT doing their homework, which is absolutely the parents' fault. That is where it begins folks...having parents not push their kids, even at the age of 5, to complete their assignments...

It is becoming harder and harder for teachers to do their jobs because kids are not scared any more, and by scared I mean scared of getting in trubble because of the consequence that would follow. In our day we got a whoopin at school and then another once we got home. back then our parents would ask the teacher "what did our kid do?" now days parents ask the teacher "what did you do to my kid." kids are not punished any more for anything and if there are no consequences then how will they ever learn
