I can say that if my kids behavior is bad enough I will give them a crack on each butt cheek. It takes a bit to get that far, but no, I have no problems with a spanking.

Oh and my mother preferred to use a spatula on my ass. The last time I was spanked was when I was 12. I don't even remember what I had done wrong but my mother grabbed me and then the spatula. She whacked my ass once and then on the second whack the spatula broke. I turned around and laughed. Bad move... From then on I was grounded. I tell ya what. I'd have rather been spanked than grounded to my room for a week or whatever. It really sucks when all your friends are outside playing and you're stuck inside watching.

To make it harder...now you have to contend with monitoring Internet, TV and video game usage. Makes it more difficult for a parent.

At my son's elementary school last year, they were concerned because he was drawing tanks blowing up planes or vice versa. People were concerned that he was drawing war pictures. I was like, "Let the kid be a kid. When I was his age I drew war pictures too....and yes people were blown up in them too."

Thankfully, nothing really came of it and eventually he moved on to drawing other things.

When will these hippie children just go away? You know that is probably the real problem. All these flower children are now in real positions of power in our education. No wonder it is going down hill.

Yes and no. You can put the video game away. Lock it up. Internet? Pull the modem.

I am only 22 (HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!), so I have not seen as much as many of you have (geezers,jk). However I agree, this country is going to hell in a handbasket...and it is not Bush's fault.

Sadly enough, GW will probally be the last President we see who has a set of metaphoric balls. If John Kerry were voted into office, this country wouldn't exist anymore. That jackass didn't know what he wanted to do.

The hippie generation is unfortunatly starting to come into power, and they are nothing but pussies. They don't think the American people can govern their own households. In this country, we will soon lose the right to think for ourselves.

The senior citizens are lucky. They won't be around when the generation currently in school starts coming into office. But I will be, and I won't let some limp wristed little ***** tell me how to think, act, or raise my kid(s) when I have any. I don't really give two shits about how others perceive me. If they don't like me, good for them. Give them a cookie or something.

Also, you guys think a wooden spoon and spatchula is bad?

You know those wooden paddles with the ball attatched with a rubber band? My mom always bought me and my brother those knowing she'd have a cheap paddle to whoop us with in an hour.

And when she got sick of those, she had my grandfather make a paddle. It was made out of oak, it was long with holes drilled into it so we'd really get the message for the next 2 days every time we sat down. It also had a long handle.

And to get onto the original topic. How anyone thought that was a drawing of a gun, unless the kid said it was a gun, I truly do not know. I have never seena gun with someone walking in top of it, sliding down a rope off of it, or a gun with windows.

If kids are getting a weeks suspension for that drawing, I'd hate to think of what I'd get for the stuff I drew in school. They'd probally throw me in a mental institustion.

My 7 year old grandson went to a birthday party on a Sunday afternoon when he was in kindergarten and one of the party favors they gave out was a little plastic candy bag with a toy water pistol about the size of my little fingernail attached to a keychain. Zac put the bag in his coat pocket and forgot to take it out. The next morning at school when he was taking his coat off to hang it in his locker, the bag fell out of his pocket and the water pistol fell out on the floor. His KG teacher was standing right there, picked up the keychain with water pistol attached, grabbed a hold of Zac and marched him down to the principal's office. He ended up getting suspended from school for 3 days for "bringing a weapon to school". My daughter appealed to the School Board and her complaint wasn't heard until after he had already had his 3 day "hiatus", but her complaints fell on deaf ears. It wasn't until I told her to threaten them with legal action if they didn't remove that ridiculous notation from his school record that they finally agreed to do so and revoke the suspension (though as I said - he had already served it). I was horrified to say the least.

Thankfully in my neighborhood kids can be kids. Most of the boys have Star Wars plastic lightsabers and various brightly colored toy guns. Their favorites are the Nerf ones that shoot the foam darts. I'm still not allowed to by my son a realistic looking gun. However a couple years ago my son pulled a very smart move all by himself. For 3 months before Halloween all he said he wanted to be was a cowboy. He pestered my wife relentlessly. She finally caved and let me buy him a pair of six shooter cap guns to complete his outfit. LOL!

He's the only kid on the street with capguns. Isn't that sad?

PisnNapaln: The ONLY kid with cap guns? Cap guns are the shit, I still have mine from when I was a kid. I can't find them in stores anywhere around here, it's really sad.

HTG: I can't beleive that your grandkid got a three day suspension for a little tiny keychain water pistol. Truly, what are out schools coming to?

I got suspended for "bringing a weapon to school" once. My grandpa bought me a leather jacket at a garage sale so I wore it to school. Turns out there was a lighter in the pocket with a ciggarette. I got TWO WEEKS suspension because in their eyes I could have had plans to burn the school down. And get this, everyone knows I DO NOT SMOKE!
