I know this may be kind of a stupid question, but my brother and I were just wondering if it's bad to get a paddling at school if you have bladder problems? There's someone in our family who has Overactive Bladder and had a choice between 2 licks or write 1000 words for punishment at school, and we didn't know if they should get a paddling since they have this OAB. I was just wondering if paddling them could maybe set off the OAB or make it worse or something? Because I know you're not supposed to get one if you have kidney problems. So I'd appreciate if you could just kind of answer because we'd really like to know. They took the 1000 words because they weren't sure if they should have a paddling.

I am not sure about the OAB, hopefully someone else will chime in on that, but I have to say that I would urge anyone to do the thousand words, because I think that corporal punishment of that kind is a grossly abusive breach of an individual's personal boundaries. I would recommend finding another school that does not engage in this barbaric practice, or if that isn't an option, taking action to protest against it.

No school should be physically abusing anyone, period. In the majority of states, including yours, it isn't lawful.

Here's the legal code from California on that:
