    The most important thing is to make the parent understand that corporal punishment is prohibited and there are many ways in which we can get the learner to cooperate.

    1. I will have to sit down with the parent and refer him/her to the school’s code of conduct that is informed by SASA and the countries constitution that corporal punishment is a punishable offence.
    2. I will also encourage parents to work together with us at the school to redirect the learners behaviour ito the right direction instead of corporal punishment.
