  1. Why he go beat her?

  2. Nowadays, parents are not allowing their children to grow up; with every little punishment they rush to the school to beat or slam the school authorities. I do not like beating a child in school to cause marks and scars on the body of a school child, it is the corporal punishment which is totally out of context. But I think both the school and parents must find a way of coming together to speak up for what is good for a punishment and what is not good for a punishment. Parents teach your children to respect adults and train because “charity begins at home”. It is so sad that nowadays the school system is being destroyed by both school authorities and parents.

    Teachers mind the way you punish and discipline your students. Parents train your children to show respect to authorities and elders so they can grow to be better citizens.
