    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...

    My Parents' Standards. Part 2 - Adolescence.

    My teenaged years were the early to mid 1960's. My Bible-believing family was rather strict and "old fashioned" even by the standards of the time, and far more so by today's more permissive standards. I was not permitted to wear makeup or perfume, and almost no jewelry. I was...

    Mom's Paddle

    Growing up my mom was very strict with me and my sister. My dad was always much more laid back so my mom would be the one was no nonsence. She had a plastic oval paddle that she kept on the fridge as a reminder to me and my sister to be good. When we were acting up my mom would...

    The Fear Of God?? How About The Fear Of Mom?

    I grew up with two sisters, one brother, a Dad, and a tyrant of a Mother.  Don't get me wrong, I love her dearly.  My Dad never really had much to do with raising us kids.  He went to work 8 to 5, came home, ate dinner, drank coffee, and smoked cigarettes.  My mother was the...

    My Parents' Standards. Part 1 - Childhood.

    When I was little, growing up in a small New Jersey town in the 1950's, I was always expected to be clean, polite, and well-mannered, whether at home or in public. Expressing anger or strong impatience or frustration towards an adult, especially my parents, was not allowed...

    The Dinner Table

    In my childhood home, dinner was a formal time - more so than breakfast or lunch. We dressed for dinner. I was expected to wash my face and hands, take off my school or play clothes and put on a suitable frock, and be in my seat in time for the saying of Grace. It wasn't a hard...

    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...

    The Cane

    I grew up as the youngest of two siblings, in a family which was fairly traditional for the 1970's in that our mother cared about us enough to discipline us, and was mainly in charge of corporal punishment while our father was out at work a lot of the time. The 'spare the rod and...

    Everyone thought I was super sheltered

    and my mom was super strict, which wasn't true. She just was a good parent who didn't let us do whatever we wanted to do and to become a spoiled brat.

    Mine Had To Be

    If Mom hadn't been strict when we were growing up, the household would have been wild and in chaos. My Daddy was an alcoholic. All during my formative and growing up years, he drank and then, as the evening wore on, he got mean, then meaner. I tried to beat him to bed so I...

    Neglecting My Chores

    We didn't live on a farm when I was little, but my mother grew up on one and she couldn't imagine childhood without chores. So I got chores and plenty of them. And if I neglected my chores, or took too long to complete them, or if I did them poorly, my mother never hesitated to...

    Will I Become My Mother?

    I think my biggest fear– actually, probably the biggest fear among teenagers and young adults– is this: I don’t want to turn into my parents. Most notably, my mother. I want to know that I’ll be able to outgrow the childhood fears she inflicted on me. I was a very...

    My mother yelled at us regularly.

    She lacked patience, we weren't bad. She had foul moods or got frustrated easily. Each of us got yelled at occasionally. It seemed one sister and I, mainly, got it a lot. There were four sisters in all, and Mom regularly showed patience with the other two but they did get...

    Slapped, Scolded At 17

    My last spanking occurred a month before I turned 15, but Mom's discipline stayed very strict until I left home. I was often grounded or given other punishments like corner time, early bedtime, etc. When I was 17 and backtalked Mom in front of company, she slapped my face and...
