1) Lukas looks like a little shiat
2) Why the fark would you give an administrator permission to hit your child? Have you ever met a school administrator?
3) Why show a pic of his bruised up ass if you can't show the pic of his bruised up ass?
4)

1) Corporal punishment is legal in Tennessee.
2) Parents agreed to and authorized corporal punishment.
3) Teacher paddled his ass because he was a little bastard.

Good luck with that lawsuit. Not saying I disagree with the parents, but the very idea that Tennessee allows strangers to hit your child is ludicrous, but not as ludicrous as the parents, who said, "sure, that sounds great!" The court's going to basically use this incident to push for more specific guidelines as to corporal punishment application, but that's about it.

And we see why I am opposed to corporal punishment: it's way too easy to go overboard and going overboard leaves lasting damage.

Its proponents seem to think that making sure the kid FEARS the authority figure in question is just as good as if the kid RESPECTS them.

The couple said that although they had given verbal permission for their son to be gently swatted if he misbehaved, they claim Dr Boyd hit the boy eight times with a paddle because he had thrown some crayons.

I think they may have grounds to sue.

If you want to smack a 15 year old with a paddle, I'm all for that. A lot of kids I went to high school with, I would've stood up and cheered if they were beaten to a pulp.

But a 5 year old? NO.

When my family moved down to Missouri in the early 90's part of the enrollment packet was a permission form that either allowed or denied the school to paddle misbehaving kids; though I don't recall ever hearing it actually being done.

That said, from a legal standpoint I don't think the parents have much ground to stand on.  They gave at least verbal permission and I would imagine TN is similar to MO and there was a written form required as well.  They claim the school went too far and actually bruised the child but that is hard to prove.  Some people bruise absurdly easily and parents that would give the school the OK to paddle probably are parents that paddle themselves.  I'm not meaning to white knight the school here, just pointing out that it's very much a he said / she said scenario and proving that the school actually went too far is rather difficult.   I will predict however that the school will at the least settle for an undisclosed amount just to make everything go away.

I disagree, discplining a child with a canoe paddle is NOT reasonable by any definition, permission to administer corporal punishment or not. You did notifce she was 'FORMER' principal I hope. In the fourth grade a substitute teacher smacked me for talking out of turn. I smacked here right back, and was suspended for a week. My mother threatened the principal witha law suit and the sub was never asked back, I got beat at home and went back to school the following week, but NO teacher in that school ever attempted to lay hands on a studen, if you deserved a beating you were sent home and your parents' took care of it and then spoke with the administrators about returning to school.
Needless to say I was a good boy for a long while.

Considering they suspended the principal for it and she's being charged with child abuse over it, she may have crossed the line with district/state policy.  Of course, being charged doesn't mean she'll be found guilty, but it'll probably help the parents' case.

Of course, suing for over a million dollars because your get got spanked and left a few bruises is a huge over reach, and only serves to deprive the other kids in the district of funding for their educations.  I hope that the suit fails, or just gets settled out of court for a pittance.

The proponents of corporal punishment don't think any such thing (some do, extremists are everywhere, just like morons).  The point is that you will do as you are bid, or you will pay a price.  The idea being that if you won't respect the rules then you'll respect the punishment.

It works just fine, but so do many other methods.  Frankly, this all starts and ends with the parents.  Either you teach your kid the cost of their actions, or you don't.

If you don't, you're soon going to find you are not welcome in polite society.

Kids misbehave, but chronic behavioral problems are almost always 100% the parents fault.

But a 5 year old? NO.


Very, very rarely did my parents ever lay a hand on me; 99 times out of 100 the threat was more than enough to settle me down and I was a very rambunktious young tyke.  In theory I agree with giving a good smack when it's called for, but in practice it's a very very  very thin line between a correcting swat, and going overboard and it becoming abusive.  Personally I think my parents stayed well on the correcting side of that line but in all honesty I'm not sure that if I were in their place that I could.

More to the point however I disagree with your statement.  Once I got to about 10/11 years old, my parents never once laid a hand on me because they no longer had to.  Even as a rebellious teen the simple possibility was enough to straighten me out.  Had my parents waited until I was older; I don't think it would have worked.

I want to make things very clear here and now though; never once did I fear my parents or feel that they went too far.  I was afraid of the punishment should I do something to warrant it; no different than I "fear" prison, and thus don't do something that will get me sent there.

Children chronically misbehave for hundreds thousands of reasons. Blaming the parent at a almost 100% rate is ignorant of reality and shows just how farking sweet your life must be.

Children tend to act out there feelings and the hormones they have little control over or what you might call behavioral problems. Traumatic experiences are very common reasons why. No mater how awesome a parent maybe there are a million reasons why they can not protect their offspring from the reality of life.  I suggest educating yourself on other peoples experiences before passing judgement.

Furthermore the article; which is from the Daily Mail mind you meaning its likely fabricated in whole; also states she's out on bond.  Given that she was simply was the principal to a (again, from the article) "rural elementary school...in TN" she probably didn't make 6 figures a year, so it logically had to have been a  small bond.  That means they only just had enough evidence to actually press charges; but as of yet she hasn't actually been  convicted.

The parents are responsible for the world around their children.  How about instead of inventing bullshiat you take a pill and realize that there is rarely a valid excuse for the shiat you allow your kids to get into.

Let me address what is most likely to be your response : You can't watch them all the time.  Yes, you can, and I know more than a few good parents that do.  YOU might not be able to, but that is YOUR failing.

Or are you seriously trying to put forward the idea that most kids have serious trauma in their lives and there was nothing that any parent could have done to avoid it?  Bullshiat.

You don't know shiat about my life, so don't assume.  Everyone has some bad experiences, only imbeciles let it dictate their behavior.

Chemical responses to situations generate impulse behavior. Children do not know or understand how to respond to these hormones. Kids are animals stop pretending that the magic of beating them or taking things away from them can prevent a child from responding to a very natural reaction that the child does not understand or is aware of.

Bad experiences are what people with good easy lives call the abnormal experiences that have negatively affected them.

Parents are people not super humans, they can not shelter their children from the harsh realities of life.

Intelligence has very little to do with conforming to calm rational behavior. I know far more imbeciles that are considered well behaved then I do intelligent people.

What I do know about your life? You lack the experience to challenge a stranger on the internet when they say there are some things that will fark up pretty much anyone and that they are some times unavoidable on the individual level. I feel because of your total unawareness of these things, comparatively speaking you have had a damn good life so stop whining and be grateful.

1.7 million dollars. 1.7 million dollars. This woman wants 1.7 million dollars because someone disciplined her child in a way she literally signed off on. I'm not speaking on the bruises or the supposed severity of the "beating", I'm speaking on the fact that she believes she deserves 1.7 MILLION FARKING DOLLARS! If she's suing the school itself, she needs to DIAF for trying to rob an already failing educational system. If she's suing the ex-principal alone, she is a damn fool for believing elementary school principals make anywhere near enough to settle a 1.7 million dollar lawsuit. Just...wow.

/also, I wonder what's more traumatic: getting a spanking for misbehaving, or having mommy show a picture of your bare ass to the entire world...

It's easy to go overboard when spanking with a paddle.  I feel the woman went way overboard in this case, though.  8 swats hard enough to leave bruising on a 5-year-old?  Wow.  And the parents won't get much of the amount of the lawsuit, even if it is awarded.  The lawyers and court system will get a good deal of it.

This also reminds me of my elementary school where the teachers went way overboard.  One teacher spent 5 years in jail and the principal was fired and had his teaching license stripped because of an incident worse than this.  The teacher paddled a boy so hard with 10 swats (if you twitched or noticeably clinched, the unwritten rule was that you got an extra for each time you did) that not only did he fall over because he couldn't feel his legs, she actually caused the back part of his scrotum where it meets the taint to tear.  This was right after lunch and he wasn't even allowed to go to the nurse to have it checked out.  He had to sit at his desk for an entire 3 hours for the dismissal bell, no potty break, no water break.  When he got up to leave for home, the back of his pants were stained red from the blood.  The "crime" he committed?  He spilled his milk and asked the custodian for help without getting permission first.

Another teacher had her license taken away and sent to jail for paddling a girl in front of a lunch room full of kids so hard she broke the 9-year-old's hymen.  Because the girl didn't start crying immediately after the first swat, she got another 5 swats so hard she was actually lifted off the ground, which is what caused the hymen to break.  The girl's crime?  Running to the restroom without permission because she had to throw up.  The same teacher had previously used a wooden dowel across the legs and then slapped a wheelchair kid so hard he fell out of his seat because he couldn't stop sneezing.  She got away with it because she threatened the classroom full of kids that they would get worse if anyone told.  She got death threats from the parents of both kids and was eventually stabbed by another because of her shenanigans.

Actually, I think it should be just the opposite; by the time somebody is 15 years old you should have different discliplinary measures.  At 5 years old a quick paddling can work because they haven't developed yet that other measures work.  Then again, at 5 things like 'sit in the corner' might work better - you need to get an idea of what disciplinary measures work with a given child; they vary.

But no matter what, bruises are over the line.

Bathia_Mapes: Oh, I think the school knows the now former principal went too far considering the fact that she has been charged with child abuse and has been suspended indefinitely.


Most likely she did; though since we haven't heard of a bunch of "me too"'s chiming in, my guess would be that she likely wasn't a chronic abuser but rather went too far  this time.  As  KidneyStone makes a point that I wouldn't so easily dismiss given the size of the lawsuit in question, and the state of our money hungry society.  Perhaps the parents  did cause the bulk of the bruises, for whatever reason (additional punishment for throwing the crayons, squealing, or no reason at all); and then realized it was a good opportunity to try and squeeze some money out of the school.

Earlier this year I was siting in my work truck at a light waiting for it to change while an older man was crossing the road.  Right as he passed me he falls down claiming I hit him.  Fortunately there was a state trooper in the next lane over who witnessed the whole affair and basically told the guy to stuff it or he would be charged with filing a false police report; but had the trooper not been there, I'm quite certain I'd be out of a job, and the company I work for (a nation-wide hardware store that I provide home deliveries for) would have paid out.

I'm not meaning to say I think  every lawsuit is a money grab; and maybe it's wrong of me to even think that it's  likely; but I believe it would be quite naive to not think it a possibility.

It doesn't matter how easy the kid may or may not bruise, the rule is if there is a mark still there more than a day later equals child abuse.  That is why she was arrested.  If your employer gave you a car to drive and you get caught making a moving violation, it is you who pays the fine.  Permission to do something is not permission to cross the legal line.  A small bond is not evidence of barely any wrong doing, but means she is not likely to run.  Also, not all child abuse charges means 5-10 years in prison, which would go to explaining not over charging for a bond.  Most of the time in Flint a person being convicted of what she did would rarely see jail but instead may lose visitation, custody or may just get court ordered parenting classes.  Criminally she may only be facing probation, a fine and permanent banishment from teaching kids.  She still did wrong and should face the consequences, but I doubt the parents will ever see that stupid dollar amount even if they do win.

Sorry...i spank my son on occasion when it is required, but if ure leaving the kind of obvious injuries like this little kid has...its abuse.

Even with pixelation, the bruising on the right side of his butt is very apparent...like she purposefully concentrated on one side to make it hurt more.

Spanking = discipline.

Abuse = adults hit you because they are mad and are bigger than you.

Biiiig difference to a child's mind.

So many elementary school teachers that I have met tell me how much they hate the students.  When I ask them:  "So why the hell are you a teacher and not something else they respond:  'because I want to teach elementary school'".  I guess paddling kids would be one reason for these people to want to keep teaching.

grokca: WOW, she hit him so hard it pixelated his ass.


Reminds me of that scene in Forrest Gump. "I got shot in the butt, wanna see", or along those lines.

Rozotorical: Chemical responses to situations generate impulse behavior. Children do not know or understand how to respond to these hormones. Kids are animals stop pretending that the magic of beating them or taking things away from them can prevent a child from responding to a very natural reaction that the child does not understand or is aware of.

Bad experiences are what people with good easy lives call the abnormal experiences that have negatively affected them.

Parents are people not super humans, they can not shelter their children from the harsh realities of life.

Intelligence has very little to do with conforming to calm rational behavior. I know far more imbeciles that are considered well behaved then I do intelligent people.

What I do know about your life? You lack the experience to challenge a stranger on the internet when they say there are some things that will fark up pretty much anyone and that they are some times unavoidable on the individual level. I feel because of your total unawareness of these things, comparatively speaking you have had a damn good life so stop whining and be grateful.


Put up some facts, or shut the fark up.  You are talking about abstract concept that have no bearing on reality.

Are we talking molestation?  child abuse?  Parental separation?  Or far more likely, not getting the ice cream you wanted at the store?

I don't doubt that some kids are farked up because of things that have happened in their lives, but using that as a blanket excuse for the way kids behave in public is beyond stupid.  It's disingenuous, and I'm willing to bet you know that, which makes you a liar  and an asshole presuming far more than you actually know, which further makes you an idiot.  Welcome to fark, you'll like it here.

So back to basics, it's the parents responsibility to look after their kids, and too make sure they behave.  If you can't handle that, don't have kids.  You can make whatever lame (and utterly unsubstantiated) excuses you want, you're still arguing that parental responsibility doesn't including making your children behave in public.  That makes you irresponsible, and an asshole, and you aren't welcome in polite society till you figure that out.  The fact that polite society is now essentially limited to places children can't legally go is a different discussion, same problem.
