You probably don't want your kids to hear this and think it gives them the green light to misbehave, but suspending or expelling children from school may end up creating more serious problems.
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends schools consider punishment on a case-by-case basis.
That's because research shows students who are expelled or given out of school suspension are ten times more likely to drop out of high school.
Also, these punishments often put troubled kids back into a risky environment, especially if there is no parent home to supervise.
