I was adopted at 10. To that time I thought I was pretty normal sized. Most of the kids were as tall as me, maybe a few real bigger. I was never the runt. Always kind of shy, my new parents were very strict and raised me with a hard spanking or the paddle everytime I said or did anything wrong. By 14 I figured something might be wrong. Now every kid in my class was taller. I continued to get spanked, which went to a belt if I was really defiant. By 16 my I had less priveledges than when I was 13 or it felt that way. Kids went out to dates, my mom wanted me close to her behaving like a good little boy. Now 18, it doesn't seem that I am any closer to spankings stopping. I still have my pants pulled down and over her lap no matter who is there. So when I here a kid complain that he is spanked, it's worse for me.
