Except for the part where teachers won't send them, because they're being told not to, and they don't want it getting kicked back on them at review time. The other kids still have to put up with it. Just life.

Yes, let's punish kids for talking in class by not letting them talk at lunch. This is so utterly absurd that I'm actually shocked that other parents think it's effective discipline.

Reading through these threads about testing and behavior in school makes me think that the institution of school is simply going to collapse under itself. So much attention is given to preparing kids for worthless tests and dealing with discipline problems... and this is supposed to be preparing children for the "real world"??

How does everyone feel about making a child sit in silent lunch and complete their homework if they forget?

My sons school does this to him. He is a slow eater and never has time to finish his lunch if he forgets to do his homework.

Depends on his age. The more important question is, what are you doing to help him stop forgetting his homework?

Sorry, but the answer is obvious. He shouldn't "forget" to do his homework.

BTW, I disagree with his school making him finish his homework during lunch time but perhaps they have tried many other methods to get him to do his home work at home and nothing has worked.

This seems too much like public humiliation to me. Please don't get me wrong, I strongly support consequences for behavior, but this seems wrong to me, especially for a 6 1/2 year old. I can understand it's use if they are misbehaving in the lunchroom, but for something totally unrelated and where all the other students are going to be walking by and taking notice?

Any thoughts or opinions?
What do you do when your kid misbehaves 3 times before lunch?
