When I was in school up until 1972 I think, we had the strap. I even got the strap when I was 8 or 9. I punched a much older boy (I was a puny girl) for whatever reason, but I made his jaw bleed & a teacher saw it. Yeah I sucker punched him, but that's the only way to get a hit in on a bigger kid that bugs you. The principal gave me the strap. If I were a principal & forced to strap someone else's kid, I would quit. By the way, if I ever track down that principal, I will be in jail for severe assault, I will curb stomp him. I have a feeling he died though, I cannot find him & believe me, I tried. If anyone were to punish my child, or now grandchild that is not the parent, they will be drinking out of a sippy cup due to a brain injury, no doubt!
