Re: S/O Am I the only one that had no idea spanking was still allowed in some states?

Yes you can opt out.

Seriously bad behavior at school is not acceptable to me at home.

A child with special needs would probably not be disciplined the same way as a kid with problem behavior. A child who purposely makes a really bad choice can suffer the consequences that come with it.

Cops are a consequence of breaking laws as an adult. I'd rather my child learn the hard way in school than out in the world.
All of the bold.

I see it as a tool of last resort, and if my own children were that out of control at school, I'd have no problem with it as long as it is administered by someone unrelated to the situation, and witnessed by another adult.

It is legal here and it is practiced in our school district. If my children went to public school I would check the box that allowed it. I'm sorry but if my child is acting in such a manner that the school feels the need to discipline them than so be it. The paddling they received at school would be the LEAST of their problems when they got home.
