    Appropriate Punishment?

    My mother was extraordinarily strict when it came to disrespecting women or girls. Once my sister said something to me. Well, I forgot what exactly it was, but I was bothered somehow and I raised my voice sounding annoyed when I replied. Unfortunately Mom took notice of it and...

    Tell The Girls

    Once I had four girl friends of mine visiting in our house. All of us were about 16 years old. We chatted about boys, clothes, films and so on. When suddenly there was a knocking on my door. I said "come in". My brother Frank entered. He was totally naked. He didn´t move but...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Disrespecting Mom was a criminal offence at

    home. I will never forget the belting my brother got one fateful day at 14. And all his crime was to shout to Mom "Leave me alone". When Dad came home they both went into our room where my bro was waiting. Dad had fetched his strap already of course. It was really hard to listen...

    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...

    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...
