I Was Caned By Mother
Since my childhood I have been brought up under strict surveillance of my mother. My mother was a very strict disciplinarian and a strong believer of using cane in disciplining child. She was a dictator to me. She caned me mercilessly with her thin rattan cane for any misbehavior, disobedience, indiscipline and mistakes in studies. Whenever and whatever I did any mistake she whipped out her cane from her cup board and strike brutally. What was the terrible sound!! What was the burning sensation person knows who received it. My father never beat us but he didn’t oppose mother’s discipline and caning. She always uses her rattan cane as our punishment. She caned us on our butt and legs, on which sometimes skin was broken even. I got speared from mothers caning when we entered to higher studies after completion of schooling. I always remember all those painful days.
Today I realize that my mother was right in disciplining me on her own belief & way for my own development and growth which I have achieved. But for her punishments, I would not have been what I am today.
