We have to admit, we didn't know that birthday spankings were still a thing!
Remember the days where you would get a certain number of spankings on your birthday...it would always correlate with your age...from friends or parents or even teachers? Who knew that practice still existed!
Apparently it does....in Texas!
An elementary school principal in North Texas is discontinuing their tradition of "birthday spankings" to students after parents complained.
By the way, this was the Principal's tradition!
Students will now get a hug or a high five on their birthdays.
Would you believe parents are split on this at that particular school? While some are happy to see the tradition go away, some parents like it and say it's "playful and fun."
