    But she was also good at being a mum.

    She was always firm so we knew she was in charge, but she did not start to spank until I was 8. She made up for her late start in the spanking procedure by getting very good at it, and then, as I grew older, she spanked less and less. The rules were simple: behave and things...

    Little Backsass!

    Apparently to my mom, when I was a girl, I was a back sass. Always sassy and having my butt reddened. Well once I remember this: I was 11. "Mom, please may I go to the concert?!" "No, for the love of God, Taylor!" "Please everyone else is." "I also know everyone else gets...

    Really strict but I love her

    and thank her for it! In contrast to my dad who's more laid back and easy-going, my mom is a more stern, no-nonsense individual who knows how to discipline when she needs to. She taught me and my sister a lot of important life lessons that helped us become the mature and...

    Actually she was probably no worse

    than many mums of the time. I am talking late 50s to very early 70s here. [I was born in 1955] When I was a child she would just spank us in the 'normal' way - over her knee or just grab and smack - but when I turned 14 she told me that at my age I should not have to be spanked...

    Mom and dad alike. My mom was petite

    and quiet, so anytime she raised her voice, you knew you were going to be receiving a sound paddling. There was no talking back, lying, yelling, or name calling. They could and did wash your mouth out with soap, after a sound paddling, and then time in the corner, with your...

    What a terrible thing!

    My mom is still strict.

    I have gotten in trouble with her many times even as an adult. I tried to avoid punishment, but then she just was mad for a long time. I find it best to accept my punishment from her so she will forgive me

    Do Spankings Deepen The Bond Between Parent And Child?

    Some believe that spankings bring parents and children closer. This does seem to happen sometimes, but I believe this is an illusion. When mother and child are at odds, having a battle of wills, this conflict, this tension, certainly creates distance between them. When the child...
