I think all maths teachers did it- mine had an excellent aim, and like CEM it was always at the person behind me, as I sat at the front. Certainly made the boys stop larking about. (And he did the metre stick thing.)

Some children are a lot easier to handle than others.
You are so, so right

If I were at school now, no way on gods earth would I use communal changing rooms or showers - it would absolutely not happen. I wonder how many teachers do the job because it gives them a chance to perv.

This particular teacher would touch in personal places to see if the girls had been in the shower. Filthy bitch.
OMG. We had one female PE teacher who would lean against the wall and watch us in the shower and I thought that was disgusting....

I did once. My then six year old son just could not be gotten through to. I wasn't angry just at a loss. It was very ritualised and bothered me more than him. However it seemed to have the desired affect. As I said it was the first and only time. He has turned out to be possibly the least violent man I know, never in a bit of trouble.

Believe me it sounds far worse than it was. No tears or daddy what have you done. Really I felt far worse than him. One time only. The affect did seem to be positive, and lasting. Not smart just lucky.

All you have left is cell phones, car keys, curfews, and my favorite.. threaten and follow through taking their door of the hinges. VERY effective!

The husband threatens to take Tiddler's door off when she slams it, gets it from me, I in turn come from a family of door slammers, extremely satisfying, anyway where was I? Ahh, yes so anyway I refuse to let him, have to remind him of what a bombsite the room is 99% of the time, don't want to be looking at that if I don't have to.

I stand corrected. However my sons room was such a disaster area you could rarely close the door on a good day.

Yeah, but I bet you'd like to

I don't think I'd smack/hit a kid but I do think there's a difference between that and a sharp tap - for eg to prevent a dangerous situation.

I think discipline is the key - in the form of sticking to what you say and always following through. I know someone (certainly not naming any names) who has spent the last 10 years not following through on threats and letting their children run rings around them and always get their own way - and they wonder why the kids are now little sh*ts
