    What a world we live in.

    I remember being lifted up by the scruff of my neck and tossed into the corridor because I just couldnt understand fractions.

    After all that - when do I ever use fractions? When? other than 1/4 or 1/2 or 3/4?

    Did it make me an axe murderor? No. Did it make me try harder? For sure.

    Still, I would love to find that bloke now and decimalise him. How do you like those decimal places Mr. ...........?!!!

    JEEESE thats really hit the nail on the head. my 7 year old boy is starting to play up at school, anywhere else hes almost an angel. its purely because the teachers dont have the powers to do much other than ignore him when he misbehave's so theirs no discepline until he gets home. we've had to get him tested for add just to shut the school up about it, guess what he dont have it SUPRISE. i would give full permission for them to give him a good spanking when he misbehaves if they were able to, as i know that would soon sort him out.
