as a child, I was told what to think, what to do, what to eat, how to act, what to dress; very few decisions could I make for myself. I couldn't curse at all at home, because I knew what would happen if I did. I couldn't fully express myself at home because I knew my mother had an emotional weakness; my father was largely unavailable, and he used intimidation to try to scare us away from doing things.

I was hit with a dowel, and verbally dressed down like a new marine recruit by a drill sargeant. I don't recommend either technique.

My father worked me like a dog on family farm, I was usually just too tired to get in trouble. But my mother petted me like a baby :)

Best Answer

I was too terrified of the repercussions to get up to any mischief.

Best Answer

What did you think the repercussions would be or did you know? They threatened then?

Best Answer

I knew what the repercussions were. Often I didn't have to do anything wrong to experience them. Acting up or crying just made things worse.

Best Answer

Sorry, that makes sense

Got a clip around the head on occasion but I asked for it as a kid lol by my teens that stopped, my parents just told me if I was acting up and I was smart and respectful enough to respect their wishes or at least compromise.
