Besides, I hardly think a smacked bottom can be classed as horrific. I'm against corporal punishment, but if you call a smacked bottom horrific, what words are you going to use to describe worse forms of punishment?

comment Is it considered harmful in the longer run to frighten the child so that he behaves the way we want?
Self confidence is not the only thing to teach them early. Basic common sense, like "Don't play on busy roads" and "Don't stick your hand in the fire" need to be taught, and the only way to teach them effectively is by telling the truth, which by its nature is frightening. I agree though, that you shouldn't use fear just to shut a child up, or to stop misbehaving.

comment Can a school prevent a child from walking home?
Torben, in our school in the UK, an 8 year-old child cannot leave the classroom at the end of day without an adult present to collect them. I have no idea whether it is enshrined in law, but it certainly does happen in the UK at least.
