I spanked her with the paddle before the students, Principal, Assistant Principal, and her Teacher. I said to her how much Teachers are paid to be disrespected.

Since then I didn’t go to school for use of Corporal Punishment. My rule of thumb was if my children disrespect their elders, Teachers, authority, and public, I’ll be at the school or anywhere to disgrace them in presence of everybody. I never cover up my children misbehaviors.
