View Full Version : Fining children

Is a teacher allowed to fine a child as punishment for breaking a classroom rule, i.e. swearing or eating chewing gum in class is a more common one?
I've mentioned fining as the respective punishment because I feel it would be more effective (make them think twice, when knowing their tuck shop money for the day is going to be taken off them) than sending them to the head teacher etc...

I don't think schools would be happy with teachers taking money from the pupils as a punishment? And I don't think it would be popular with the parents either... :eek:
I think with disciplining a child, the message to be trying to get through is not 'if you do so and so then this will be the consquence' but that the child should realise that doing 'so and so' is actually not good behaviour, not respectful and not pleasing.
Of course, this is all easy in theory :lol: Practically its probably wishful thinking...

When I was in high school some teachers used to take a quarter from students when ever they cursed in class. The students didn't seem to mind --- Im not sure if the school administrators knew about it --- Im pretty sure that theres gotta be a law against it...
Why not call the parents of disobedient children after class (some of my teachers would have the student call their own parents during class) - and report the bad behavoir to them.

Obviously other measures had been taken before considering this one, and the suggestion isn't so bizzare, I remember, teachers at my school doing it too...
Bad language is becoming pretty hard to tackle in young children and no amounts of explaining the sins and informing parents seems to make a difference...
I just wanted to know if there was any Islamic ruling prohibiting the fining of young children thats all..
Oh and its not as if the money would be going into my pocket, the school charity box in the classroom instead!
