    so my mom and dad are real old fashioned

    my mom was very strict

    when I was growing up and got even more so once I was a teenager. I had to be home from school at 3.30 and heaven help me if I was even a few seconds late. She gave me lots to do all the time around the house so I never had time for friends and I really never left the house much...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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

    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...

    When growing up I had a very strict mother.

    I was spanked naked over her knees for my misdeeds as a child When I started my teenage year, my mother would lighten up on spankings for the most part. Instead of getting spanked naked by her, she would take away some things I really loved to do. For example my driving...

    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...

    What a terrible thing!

    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...

    Disrespecting Mom was a criminal offence at

    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...

    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...
