Re: Corporal punishment in school
It is still allowed in Alabama but I don't know of any teachers that actually do it. I'm not against spanking but I am against people spanking my son. Traditional punishments don't work for him due to his special needs. He does best with positive discipline although when he is acting really ugly (hitting & biting) I tell him he can't be around people until he can treat them better. I got him to wear his glasses because I told everyone to tell him how handsome he looks when he wears them. After the tenth person praised him all of a sudden wearing his glasses was something he wanted to do.
