Often

Both myself and my sisters were often smacked by my parents (especially my mother) growing up and she generally didn't seem to care who witnessed it. If we misbehaved in front of people then we were usually smacked in front of them too which led to us getting some very embarrassing public punishments both in front of extended family and friends and also complete strangers too!

Over the years we were smacked in all many of places from shop changing rooms to beaches to parks, etc.

I have also witnessed many public smackings over the years too, especially of cousins, etc.

Would be happy to share memories/experiences with anyone who had a similar upbringing.
