A School Principal Has Been Giving Kids ‘Birthday Spankings’ And Parents Are Angry

Parents are livid over this!

    Alvord Elementary School in Texas is one place that likes to make children feel special on their birthday. But instead of announcing a child’s name over the intercom in the morning or giving them a special birthday treat during lunch, Alvord Elementary School principal Bridget Williams likes to give the students something she likes to call a “birthday spanking.”

    That’s right: the principal “spanks” a child for their birthday.

    Now, I don’t know about you, but I get pretty upset whenever I read the words “children” and “spanking” in the same sentence. The two just don’t go together. And I get just as angry and upset knowing that someone outside of the home might be spanking children. It doesn’t matter if it’s a disciplinary measure or “for fun” like at Alvord Elementary School. Spanking is a very controversial issue that upsets a lot of people. It’s also a topic that is often debated by both parents, childcare workers and medical professionals.

    So why on Earth would a school think it’s OK to give a child a spanking on his or her birthday? That’s what a lot of people are asking this week. Here’s what we know so far.

    Alvord Elementary is putting a halt on their birthday spanking tradition.
