    Punishing on students is child abuse. Schools should be aware of this.

    There are children that wont take correction unless you punish them.

    @Rhoda, I believe such children are already used to such medium. If the parents have used effective parenting tactics, they won’t have to use punishment to make a crooked child straight. My opinion nonetheless.

    For me I think corporal punishment should be abolished, but mild punishment that does not damage the child’s self-esteem can be used. Or else we will be raising spoilt children who won’t know their left from their right.

    You are making real sense here. Can we have a pdf of your school prospectus and link to download please.

    This should be discussed during your PTA meetings. More parents/ guardians need to be conversant with this.

    I recall when I was still in secondary school and my parents will not allow me bring my friends home. I was always denied of my weekly allowance then. But it never deterred me from keeping my friends. I simply find an excuse of and extended class to play with my friends at school and got home late, why still getting my usual weekly allowance. Killing a two birds with a stone

    @Dumebi..LOL. Over-punishment if there is such words only make the children’s heart head strong. I am a testimony to that.

    I think we should learn from the way the way school’s abroad punish students. We can really learn a great deal from them. At least we are copying their curriculum in this country.

    Punishment is part of a child training. It makes a child understand the difference between the things that are good and those that are bad. I agree that it should not be one that inflicts injury.

    You know some parents view any form of punishment as barbaric. They wont even allow them to be punished by anyone nor they the parents. If a child is not scolded or punished for wrong doing, I wonder how such will grow up in a society like ours. Just my thought anyway.

    Parents really need to learn from this. Teachers likewise

    I thin is a matter of choice, upbringing and culture for parents. That mostly determine how they dish out punishment to their kids.

    I remember those days when my mother will use her eyes to flog the hell out of me. One look and you are shivering like an harmattan leaf. We understand what each look meant. That was enough punishment on its own.

  • Monsuru Hemmed

    @Hatrick, you do that nowadays, the child is gonna ask you if you got dust in your eyes. Gone are those days. Few kids nowadays understand the language of eye contact.

    The thing with punishment is that it should be used with caution

    Growing up our parents used corporal punishment on us, but that is unattainable in this age

    We just have to be careful in the ind of punishment we dish out as parents.

    As long as it is not one that inflicts a bodily injury, am good with it.

    I think its better to sit our children down an have a chat with them. They don’t like when we the parents are angry at them for their wrong doing. This method works for me all the time

    If only all school will follow suit on having a blog like this. Thanks DIC. Love this idea and your post is really benefiting me .

    PUNISHMENT DOES NOT KILL. OUR PARENTS USED IT ON US. I ONLY DON’T SUBSCRIBE TO INJURING A CHILD IN THE PROCESS. THANKS.

    Shouting or enforcing rigid punishment on kids does not work on them anymore. Parents should find out what work and apply it. Let’s just be siplokatic about it so we don’t push our kids away.
