The punishment is very common means of maintaining displine in schools in Malawi.
I use punishment as a means of decreasing the probability of an undesired behaviour happening again.
I am not used to this culture.
Punishment is meaningless in Japan.The punishment has an immediate effect on students.
If I scold the students in Japan,they would understand why they are like this.But the students don't understand.I give the punishment all the time.
Unless I do, the students think I don't do that.They make more noise.That is very problem.
Maybe they are testing your patience how far.
They are schared male teachers
I change the approach
