    I had a wood work teacher who threw soldering irons at people, he hit someone once and was suspended and done for ABH he took retirement after the court case.

    He punched me once because the drawing of my milk counter thingy wasnt very good, I told him I was crap at drawing and he hit me.

    He was a tool but he made you listen.

    I am all for throwing the erasers, grabbing an ear to make sure they heard you or helping them to the office. However, don't lay hands on my child. That is my job. If someone does and I was to find out about it, I would not be responable for the clean up someone would have to deal with when I was done. :dry

    Spot on. You can tell it wasn't written by a Brit though: How many of my fellow Brits had a CAR when at school.

    We had a Maths teacher who used to skim the top of your knuckles with the edge of a steel ruler. She only had to do it once and you were pouring with blood. That was the BEST BEHAVED class i was ever in.

    The problem is Mitz, A lot of people feel the same but then neglect to chastise their kids themselves.

    Well my parents did not raise us that way. They raised 5 of us. None us turn out to be serial killers, drug addicts or lets sue someone for a living. So I fig they must have done something right to keep us all towing the line and help us to become productive citizens. Besides, I truly belive in passing one heritage down to the next generation. Might as well start when they are young. :twisted: :biggrin
