I was spanked mostly with a belt.
Mom began spanking me at age 11, that is when parents divorced. Both spanked me bare, dad only used hand and spanked me in my bedroom with door closed. When mom spanked she used a wooden ruler or slipper and always spanked me in the family room.
My mom would spank me on my bare butt and sometimes with her "stupid hairbrush"
Yes, I received the tawse (heavy leather belt with two tails) on my hands in school and on my bare bottom from dad at home. It was very sore. <br />
I went to a Roman Catholic school in Glasgow, which had strict discipline teachers applied the tawse in the classroom with no fuss or punishment book. The teacher just said, "you boy OUT hold out your hands" and you were tawsed. It was the same dad gave me the tawse on my bare bottom. Corporal punishment was the normal means of discipline for children.<br />
The Catholic Church sought to encourage there members to enter professions such as law, science engineering and corporal punishment was the means to achieve this. Discipline was strict and corporal punishment was a means to achieve this. The tawse was seen an educational aid just like paper and pens. The church was very powerful in society, they controlled there own schools and churches and had a lot of political power and influence.
