The Agenda will discuss how we punish our children and how punnishment effects society! We know you have something to sat so call in!

Punishment (also penalty) is the authoritative imposition of something undesirable or unpleasant on a person or group of people, such as fine, penalty, or confinement. It may similarly entail the removal of something desirable or pleasant. This is done in response to a particular behaviour deemed unacceptable by an authority who has the inclination and power to enforce a certain standard.  The authority may be either a group or a single person, and punishment may be carried out formally under a system of law or informally in other kinds of social settings such as within a family.
