MEMPHIS TN (IFS) -- We as parents, we forget what corporal punishment really is! Corporal punishment is brutal and just short of drawing blood. Usually, the paddle board is given to the vice principal who is the discipline leader. This person must really love their job.
For the boys, they try very hard to break the paddle. They are less rigid on the girls. Some times you get a teacher who really looses it and they get carried away with the paddle. Most of the time, its three swaps with five to ten second intervals between swaps. Four swaps is on the edge of abuse.
The paddle must be placed squarely on the buttocks area, avoiding the tail bone, which they intentionally try to hit. The excuse for the executioner, is that the paddle slipped, which in many cases has caused serve damage to kidneys, reproductive organs with internal bleeding.
It cases like this, you usually get a child that goes home and get a gun and come back for retaliation against the person who paddled them. Then the story reads that a kid goes nuts and kills the principal and the persons that got them in trouble.-khs
