Let’s Talk About It: New Age Discipline

New age discipline. I hate it. The thought of my parents cutting my hair into some type of contraption to teach me some type of lesson is stupid to me. What happened to take away a child’s valued possessions such as their games, phones and etc?

As a former member of public schools, I know a kid coming to school with one of these cuts would be roasted for a very long time. Roasting is seen as bullying. So my question is what happens when your kid is bullied all throughout the school year? And the next year after that because kids don’t forget. On top of this what about the bullies online since you decided to post the video online? Also, taking pictures and posting it as if it’s some type of accomplishment will not raise someone’s grades.

I feel like disciplinary actions are not the best way. If I was having bad grades on some assignments I would want more help. Obviously, I’m not getting the lessons being taught. A wild haircut or timeout is not going to make my grades higher.

That’s just my take on discipline but tell me yours in the comments. Subscribe to my mailing list to stay updated on my blog. View my previous posts until tomorrow.
