I am proud and very blessed to be a Granny. :) With your oldest at 19, it may come faster than you think where you are being called Grandpa Mark.

Corporal punishment was banned in my state for public schools in 1993, which was a few years after I began teaching. However, the school I have always taught at has never allowed it, even when it was still legal.

Believe me, there have been times I've wanted the option to put one of my students over my knee and give them a good spanking, because I knew that's exactly what they needed and deserved. But in a sense I am fine with not being able to spank for what would only be allowed (3-4 swats with a paddle on a clothed bottom). A spanking I know that would not send my desired message or really benefit them, so I would rather not do it at all. As the old saying goes, if you're going to do it, you may as well do it right.

I have seen a number of changes in the school system over the years, all of them with good intentions, but some not working out as intended. But you have to roll with it, like with any job. What gets me through it is my love of teaching and my students.
