    Corporal punishment should be a last resort that is rarely resorted to. If you get to that point with nothing else working, it probably isn’t going to work either. On the other hand, there is something to be said for “spare the rod and spoil the child”, but it probably shouldn’t be taken completely literally.

    I concur with your statement that if you get to that point with nothing else working, it probably isn’t going to work either. Corporal punishment and spanking are tough issues for parents.

    There was an incident not too long ago in Springtown Texas that made the news. The mothers of two high school girls complained that their daughters were paddled by a male principle which was in violation of the school’s own same gender paddling policy. The thing that really shocked me was that one of them had a male police officer as a witness. This principle must really be trying to humiliate these girls as much as possible. He could have chosen a female staff member to minimize the emotional damage but chose a male policeman instead. Involving the police in this is really crossing the line. Using a policeman as a witness could end up making female students distrusting of the police or give them a negative attitude toward law enforcement later on in their lives
