JusJoJan- Stream Of Consciousnesses Saturday- January 2, 21

Linda is the host of Stream Of Consciousnesses Saturday

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “in the corner.” Write about whatever the image or thought of “in the corner” brings to mind. Have fun!


Go stand in the corner!

Have you ever been the one told to?

Or were you the one telling someone to do so?

Why do people have to punish with humiliation

Why cannot discipline be enforced through reasoning

One thing that I am so glad about that has changed with time

Is now we all are cognizant that all people, young or old

Have dignity that should be respected, never be trampled over

And punishment shouldn’t ever be a form of humiliation

  1. I was one of those sent to the corner…with my desk in 4th grade. I wasn’t paying attention and got caught being goofy with the kid next to me. I got the corner; he got yelled at. Must have been holding my mouth wrong?

  2. Humiliation coupled with shame were once spread more thickly than peanut butter on bread. I, too, am glad it is going the way of the dinosaur, but not completely gone yet. Wonderful observations, Sadje.


  3. 100% truth. Humiliation used to be a common classroom tool — every once in a while you still run into a teacher with the mindset that “making an example” of someone will fix their behavior. So sad.
