I agree 100%.
I haven't given a lot of hidings, and it was only in exceptional circumstances.
As an example, my eldest son was cheeky to one of the teachers in the aftercare. He had been warned about it previously. He was rude to the lady again, and on the way home I told him i was disappointed and that he had been warned about being rude. So i gave him a choice, he could either get a hiding when we got home, or I would take away his X-Box and PC privileges for a month.
So, he opted for the hiding instead.
When we got home I took away his X-box and PC for a month.
Ah ha ha, very good.

I always said to my kids teachers, they can forget homework, maybe be bit naughty but if they are disrespectful please let me know and I will sort them out.
So far all good, had once a bit of talk and issue sorted.

Teacher should dealt with this differently, we do not know why she cracked. If you have few kids like that I can understand, it ruins day for teacher and for the rest of the pupils.

Kids are moulded by their parents, school and company they keep.
Some parents delegate that to school and do not watch who kids socialise with.

We had a house party and one of the kids made a bit of mess (I was not aware of it at that time).
He came early next day, profusely apologised and fixed it all up.
That was a great example for my younger one that if you mess up you own it and you fix it.

Our old times were different, parents supported teachers much more and teachers had much more respect in the society.

Such a shame about this teacher, pushed to her breaking point and crossed a line. this wont work in her favour, but I fully support her and I hope others do as well.

Problem children and even worse parents. If teacher gets all the blame, this kid wont learn and just creates an impression that other children can do the same thing.

Its a bad situation, but I support the teacher. Maybe her slap was too hard but boo bloody hoo, kid will survive, and just maybe, may learn something.. but probably not, gauging the parents reaction.

2 degrees and 1 on the way, yet very little common sense being baited by a child and being stupid enough to get caught on tape.
Many like you seems to solely focus on the 90 seconds of video available. It has been pointed out many times that she is a spawn of satan (in nicer terms), in other words I'm pretty sure this girl has been pushing the boundaries for months slowly edging the teacher to breaking point.

Doesn't matter. That teacher was outsmarted by an imbecilic child. I support what she did, do not get me wrong. But at the end of the day, in the world we live in, that teacher should have known better.

And wait till the race idiots on social media climb on the band wagon. This teacher shouldn't act like she lives under a rock. Has she not watched the news just this past month? Has she as a teacher never seen those damn youtube videos of teachers being secretly recorded?

Saw one article that says the kids love her and want her back.

Yip. they actually protested (peacefully) shortly after the incident asking that idiots don't make this about race. Pretty smart kids.

Yes I have.
But only after all other avenues have been exhausted. And I never give them a hiding in anger.
Thanks for being honest. I never received hiding from parents/anyone so was genuinely curious. We have a toddler but difficult to imagine myself doing that to such spectacular cuteness at this stage. I hope I continue with my parent's legacy in this respect at least. :ROFL:
