An Acceptable Means Of Discipline When I Grew Up

A spanking for me only happened when all else had failed.  Once I'd grown up, mom admitted how she always felt bad after administering a spanking.  She didn't want to be cruel, but it reached a point where I was not heeding her warnings over my bad behaviour.  Spankings were pretty rare, but the threat of one occurring was always there, and helped to keep me in check, I'm sure.  In fact, I was probably more terrified about making mom mad enough at me that she had to spank me than I was ever actually hurt by the spanking itself.  Spanking was the signal that I had carried things beyond her tolerance and needed to adjust my behaviour, regardless of how justified I may have originally felt.  I don't feel bad for having been spanked as a child.  As it was used sparingly, I think it helped me in my development more than it ever traumatized me.

Now, if I could only get a spanking as an adult . . .  Ooops! Sorry folks . . . wrong category!

BRIANGEE'S ANSWER IS A PROOF TO ME THAT PEOPLE HIT THEIR KIDS BECAUSE THEY GET ANGRY....AND THEY BLAME THEIR KIDS FOR IT, INSTEAD OF ACTIVELY AND WITH MUCH EFFORT DEALING WITH IT.<br />

Say and do anything you want about my comment. JUST KNOW. YOU WILL NEVER CONVINCE ME.

ba<x>sed on all the views this story has received (one of my most popular, and I never intended for it to be), I have to agree with your point.

You want to be spanked? OK -- come here, then.
