Well, first, you and his teacher should be working towards a solution for this together.

Second, you need to learn how to introduce a consequences for behaviour style, that does not include physical abuse, since your son is old enough and able to make choices on his own.

Spanking him is teaching him nothing. Absolutely nothing. All it does is teaches him to be afraid of you. You need to look at more logical consequences that will help guide and teach him. What is it he is doing at school that is so wrong he needs you hitting him for it? Is it something he gets consequences for at school?

Spanking doesn't do a thing in the world to teach a child how to be responsible (or really teach anyone how to do anything... except not get caught). Do you want to TEACH him how he should act... or just keep punishing him for how he does act?

What is he doing that is irresponsible and what is the teacher doing about it?
