I Know Not To Pick The Smallest Switch!!!I got soooo many spankings growing up. My mom used to send me out to pick my own switch. For the longest time I would grab the tiniest ones, thinking they would hurt less. Boy oh boy, was I wrong!!! Those are the worst and they sure leave some welts! It seems like my mom spanked me almost every day. My dad only spanked me one time...I had been sitting in the back seat and stuck my tongue out at them. Dad saw me in the mirror. lol. After spanking me, he walked off and cried though. Poor guy...
Once, after trying to hide under the kitchen table, I learned NOT to run/hide from the spankings! They're twice as bad then:P
I'm on the fence when it comes to the debate as to whether this is proper or not. Personally, I think it depends on the child. Some do better with spankings, others with time-outs, others with a simple talk. As for me, I can honestly say that it wreaked a lot of havoc on my relationship with my mother. I thought she hated me growing up and in turn, I wasn't very fond of her. However, she did teach me a lot about morals and manners. I have her to thank for instilling those lessons in my mind. I can say that her spankings never caused me to develop any violent tendencies or anything that a lot of people are accusing spankings of:P I simply learned me lessons, learned them well, and held a strong contempt for my mother. lol. However, now that I'm grown and on my own I am very thankful to her for everything...yes, even the spankings. I know she tried her hardest and did her best to make sure I grew into a wonderful person. I can never thank her enough for that.
