    I had my mouth selotaped shut at primary school and one of my friends was put in a little waste paper bin (up to her shins), because she kept producing rubbish or some other reason. My parents thought it was funny and I probably deserved it for not shutting up! This happened int he early 1990s so that logn ago really.

    The teacher that did it didn't get in trouble and when i look back at my time at primary school he was also one of my favourite teachers.

    Parents seem to think there chidlren never misbehave at school, always do what they are told, and are absolute angels. Parents complain when a student is given an after school detention because it is inconvenient for them. Schools are slowly getting softer and softer because there is no longer deterrents, as parents only take their little angels side, and students are simply taking advantage of it

    Haha, the picture of her and her dad make it look like she's undergone some awful trauma.

    There's every chance in the world that her, the teacher and the rest of the class were having a giggle about it. I can't imagine anyone sellotaping someone's mouth or having their mouth selotaped in these circumstances in a serious fashion.

    This happened to me, and several class mates in the early to mid 1990s.

    Everyone saw it as a bit of a laugh. Kids, parents, teachers. Everyone is so touchy these days.

    As much as I am 150% behind making sure that children are safe and not in any way being mistreated, I do think things have gone ridiculously the other way.
