Physical discipline is not ok. I have been reading The Giver, and I realized that in some states physical discipline is getting out of hand. things, like slapping children and getting hit by a rod, are NOT ok. think if your children are getting hurt in class and maybe even at home? is that setting a good example? setting a safe environment?  why are people doing this to kids do they really deserve things like this. In the book called The Giver there is a kid named Asher and he asks for “smacks” instead of snacks so the teacher hits him with a rod.


Here is an example from the book: “Jonas remembered it clearly. He could still see little Asher, wiggling with impatience in the line. He remembered the cheerful voice call out, "I want my smack!" The other Threes, including Jonas, had laughed nervously. "Snack!" they corrected. "You meant snack, Asher!" But the mistake had been made. And precision of language was one of the most important tasks of small children. Asher had asked for a smack. The discipline wand, in the hand of the Childcare worker, whistled as it came down across Asher's hands. Asher  whimpered, cringed, and corrected himself instantly. "Snack," he whispered.”


Is that terrible or what? Maybe send them to the principal or if it is not that bad maybe talk to them in private or help them through the problem I feel like if you do that the kids will be more willing to go to school and be in a safer Environment. so if you have listened and thought this through we need to stop physical discipline on children now!
