My mom was infamous for slapping my sister and I across the face if we talked back to her or were disrespectful in some way. She also would smack our arms and butts too. To make matters worse she was impatient and had a temper. Unfortunately for me I was the defiant child in our family and I loved to test limits with my mom. I can remember clearly talking back to my mom sarcastically and the sting of her smack across my face. I think it was more humiliating than anything. At least it was for me. I vowed to never do that to my kids when I had them and I never have. However, haven't gotten to the teen years yet lol.
