Consequences of Missing School
Is your child ever truant from school? Are you wondering what the cause or consequence could be?
Corporal Punishment in the School
The first day of school is an exciting time for most children. A new teacher, new friends, and an opportunity to learn are expected. Spanking, pinching or paddling is not thought to be an option.
