He thought he was being cute. He needed to be disciplined. Obviously, his parents are too ignorant to know that responsibility lies with them.

The teacher didn't harm the kid. Maybe his widdle bitty feewings were hurt. Poor thing. He needs to straighten up and fly right.


So now teachers aren't allowed to touch kids!

Oh, the drama!!!
I'm not discounting that this child may have been having persistent behavioral issues but as an adult and a teacher, she is suppose to have some self-control and self-discipline. She displayed neither.

If teachers have a problem with a students at my kids' school, one of the APs or the Principal personally comes to the classroom and removes the child to spend time in their offices rather than further disrupt teaching.

I volunteer at my kids' school and am there for hours at a time, almost daily. There are some kids I'd love to throw up against a wall and rip into for their lack of respect (and I know teachers feel the same way) but you don't act on those thoughts in that manner.

She admits to having had it with this kid - instead of manhandling a 6-year old, she should have sent for an AP or the principal. Stupid to do what she did and in full view of surveillance cameras.

I'm sorry, but as a parent, I don't agree with you.

The teacher is an adult, and should know better. She did the wrong thing. She should have sent the child to the principals office, or had the principal call the parents and have the child removed from her class.


Did the child probably tick her off where she probably wanted to smack his little face, absolutely, I totally get that, and would probably want to do the same.....but as an adult, I know I am not allowed to hit another child, as I would also not want another adult to hit mine....


and NO, teachers are NOT allowed to touch kids !!!

If that were my 6 year old child, I would have had the matter taken care of quietly. That "teacher" would no longer have the physical ability to return to the classroom. Ever.

Ten day suspension? That's it? This pig should be fired and never allowed to teach little children again.

Contrast this with the story of the teacher who was shoved to the floor by a high school student in Houston, this pig should have been shoved to the floor. Good thing there are cameras or else incidents like this go unchecked. Granted, teachers in my grade schools did much worse, but that doesn't make it any less unacceptable.

my dad used to say boy you can tell the kids who get their behinds torn up and the ones who don't and more so today than ever before and it is the governments fault because they tell the parents you cant swat your kids behind with a belt or strap and granted that child needs to learn discipline and so do his parents need to learn how to apply to him .

Still wrong. Why are you posting this in every thread now?

And then your child would no longer have you at home to parent him, because you would be in jail. I don't think that would teach your child an effective way to handle bad things in life. Instead she needs to lose her job and not be allowed to work with children again.

No, I wouldn't be in jail. When I said "quietly", I meant just that. There would be no need for my child to know that I was involved.

Edited to add that she needs more than to lose her job. She needs to be prosecuted, behind bars, and her name added to the list of child abusers.
