My Worst WhippingMy parents almost always used a belt to punish me. They were very strict and religious and taught me verses from the Bible hat said it ws right to spank your child. This was a common belief growing up in our community.
I was spanked from the time I was about 3 or 4 years old, into my early teens. Mom and dad both spanked me when I was younger, but as I got older it was mainly dad that did it.
He always used a belt, sometimes it was on my bare bottom and other times on my pants-covered butt. Either way, it hurt and I cried. It usually took place in my bedroom.
The worst one I remember was when I was around 12 years old. I was out playing in the neighborhood with some friends and it was after dark. My mom was calling m to come home (of course in those days, that meant her standing on our front porch and yelling out my name).
I must have been too involved in play and did not hear her. The next thing I knew, my dad was out looking for me and telling me to get home. When I walked into the house, Mom was upset and yelled at me--I always thought she was oveprotective. Dad came in and told me to get to my bedroom. I could hear mom tellng him that I needed to be "taught a lesson".
Dad came into my bedroom, he already had his belt in his hand, doubled over. He was telling me about staying out late, etc and I was scared of course becauseI knew he was going to whip me.
He pushed me down onto my bed and then he reached into the waistband of my shorts and pulled my shorts and underwear totally off of me. He then whipped me with his belt. I don't know how many times he hit me, but I was crying and it hurt.
When he finally stopped I was sobbing and my butt hurt. He was saying things like you had better come home when called from now on and so forth.
Then he made me go out and apologize to mom. I was still "bottomless" and crying. Sheasked me if I had learned my lesson and I just said that "he" had whipped me. Mom replied that "yes he had" and that "I would get more if I didn't come home when I was supposed to."
I think this one affected me so powerfully because I was bare from the waist down, made to apologize and her reaction seemed so "mean". I have heard of kids getting hugged after a spanking but I never did, as much as I can remember.
