parents teachers children

i believe that it was in margret thatchers  era that a law was introduced where parents were no longer allowed to control their children  whilst i would never agree with a child being beaten. if a child is out of control .a quick slap on the bottom would normaly  stop the situation getting worse. before all you do gooders start lecturing me just look around you today .parents are not allowed to punish their children look in any newspaper when did it become acceptable for a young person to kick an old person in the back and run off  laughing .when did it become acceptable for youngsters to roam about the streets late at night and we the public are not allowed to say anything. when did it become acceptable for  groups of youngsters to terrorize innocent people in their homes and on the street. how have we allowed some areas in our citys to become no go areas and its getting worse  the police cannot be expected to do what parents and teachersare not allowed to do children today quote the law  better than any solictor . it is time that control was given back to the adults   sadly some children  will get beaten  no matter  how many laws are made hopefully social services  will step in . but it is time to act now

Violence to children, the law needs rewriting

Reveiw the law and allow some form of discipline to be given by parents, and affirm any form of abuse WILL be dealt with by a court prosecution.Relax the rules for parents a little.

Any child whoose parents have proven to try to discipline their child is sent to boot camp ready for the army if they are unwilling to change.If it is proven parents refused to discipline their child, benefits stop,housing is stopped, parents are prosecuted.

Restore power to the teachers

I am currently a sixth former at my local state school and am appauled daily by the lack of control the teachers feel they have over pupils who are consequently allowed to run riot. This needs to be stopped. Teachers should definately be given the moral highground once again, they need to know that the Government are backing them and giving them the power to enforce discipline properly, rather then sending for higher members of staff who recieve exactly the same treatment. The pupils know they can cause trouble without facing any real implications and therefore enjoy roaming the school doing as they please, with the occasional after school detention as their only punishment. The whole system needs to be looked into, and the nanny state needs to be clamped, pupils constantly use their human rights and the fact that 'they'll take you to court' if you as far as touch them, to acknowledge their power within the classroom and students who want to learn and are not at all disrupted find themselves recieving low quality education as a result of this. I'm not suggesting pupils should be smacked by a slipper everytime they speak out of turn, but for the teachers to regain control in the classroom and for constantly disruptive pupils to be secluded or excluded once and for all, as the current charges on schools that exclude pupils means that troublesome youngsters are being allowed back time and time again so that the school can escape the fine.

Teaching Assistants are there to assist teachers and pupils..but not to be a punch bag

I work as a TA and also a parent governor and the past government has made it more and more difficult to exclude disruptive pupils because 'every child matters' and TA's, myself included daily have verbal abuse and physical abuse to deal with. 

It is about time parent once again became responsible for their childs behaviour and are made to parent.  Schools are doing more and more of the parents job instead of teaching children who really need it.  Very rarely are children given a funded statement to aid them with learning, with children who actually want to learn.  Yet disruptive and violent children are given statements because of their behaviour and are given one to one support.

The health and safety at work act does not seem to apply to support staff in schools.  If staff complain it can be 'awkward' and lives can be made difficult because heads hands are tied.

Children who are being disruptive for the sake of being need specialist units where there needs can be met so children who behave can get the education they deserve without fear.

If a child has been violent to either staff or pupil, the school should not be questioned or reprimanded but the parents, and if need be penalise the parents maybe then they will sit up and take notice.

Action needs to be taken because all schools budgets are taken up dealing with disruptive pupils who do not have funding and are eating into the main school budgets which has a knock on effect to every childs education.

Give the power of disciplining back to parents and teachers.

Nobody WANTS to smack their children. But being taught to understand and respect "no" has to start at a young age to ensure you can remain in control of your childs behaviour when they are older. Once the lesson is learnt then the threat is often enough to stop bad behaviour before it gets out of hand.

People now fear chastising their children. Who will see? who will hear? who will report?

This is leading to the ever growing population of children that do not repect their elders, their peers, their teachers or the law.

I would like to see positive support from the government for parents and chastisement. It is even frowned upon to shout at your children and show you are annoyed now. Have you ever tried telling off an animal that has fouled your new carpet in quiet subtle tones and a relaxed body language? Yes, it just wags it's tail and and thinks it's a good thing! Daily doses of puppy poo proceed! It's the same with children, your tone and body language need to match the mood, otherwise you just confuse the poor kids!

The same support should also be given to teachers. Then both parents and teachers can work together to teach the right way for our future generation rather than undermining each other.

I know someone may raise the issue of child abuse/cruelty. I will not belittle that subject in any way. There are a minority of people that cannot tell the difference between a smack and a beating BUT they are there whether you are allowed to physically chastise your child or not.

EMPOWER TEACHERS AND MAKE THEM ABLE TO USE REASONABLE PHYSICAL PUNISHMENT

Schools are becoming increasingly unruly places as the result of teachers being powerless to exert control where required. This is impacting on society as a whole and on the rights of well behaved children in the school to receive the attention and education they deserve.

Smacking Children

We are breeding a society of un disciplined children who have no really knowledge of consequence because we are no longer allowed to smack our children.

I am not talking about beating but the simple sharp shock that a smack on the bottom brings.

We take our children out, they misbehave and maybe even put themselves in danger and basically we are damned if we do and damned if we dont.  There are no "naughty steps" when your out and about. Also I find that dragged a kicking and screaming child to a naught step, time out area, is physically more harsh on the child.

This law was passed to stop beatings of children and whilst I agree with that it is aimed at exactly the same people who have no regard for the law in this matter (baby p???)

A parent that smacks their child is not just going to think oh well I can beat them now, this ignorant law has grouped everyone together as child abusers.

A light tap or sharp quick shock does not lead to violence in that child, hell every adult over 35 would be violent if that were true.

Special educational needs – behavioural difficulties

Change the system for identifying students with Special Educational Needs. Remove the incentive for schools to tolerate and enourage unruly children (as long as they bring extra funding) and use lobbying by parents for SEN support for their child as a warning flag that the system may be being manipulated.  Where manipulation is suspected, this should be a trigger more rigorous assessment informed by the evidenced observations of those directly responsible for the student's learning (teachers and teaching assistants – not SEN co-ordinators who are managers whose budgets directly benefit from increased rolls). Advantage the genuinely needy by valuing and encouraging school identification of SEN but limit individual school SEN funding to a maximum percentage above the norm for their catchment population.
