comment When is physical punishment appropriate?
@BryanH I absolutely agree with all of the things stated: 1. spanking is better than no discipline at all, 2. physical violence is an effective form of discipline (as supported by the link in my post), and 3. it is possible (and preferable! and MORE effective!) to discipline without resorting to physical violence.

comment Are netbooks appropriate for school age children?
@afrazier True, cyber dangers have changed and increased with the times just as the requirement for neighbourhood safety has changed. We need to make sure someone in grade 5 is just as proficient and knowledgeable of potential internet dangers as we would "street" dangers. My point is that your concerns with the internet need to be addressed by grade 5, especially if they are being given their own laptops/netbooks.
