I was screaming like anything when she left me finally. Hell, my great grandma used to come after us with a cattle prod. When it came to my mom though, I'll admit to toeing the line on what I could get away with and even now, at 21, I'm still a total little shit, but she's finally accepted that it's just my personality and that nothing she says or does is ever going to change that. I don't think they ever did. Mine barely ever spanked me, but when they did, you better believe I cut out whatever it was I was doing. I prefer to try my friend's way, if I ever have a kid. It was also very degrading and demoralizing, it causes lack of confidence and resentment and all sorts of other problems.
Do/did your parents spank you or use other physical punishment? - GirlsAskGuys
When my Grandma took her slipper off shit use to hit the fan, me and my brother use to get a right beating. Sometimes if mom was making pasta, she'd use the hot wood spoon. I have scars all over my body from knife cuts. Every Friday at 3PM! He was and is a very generous man.
And then when Dad got home Personally I'd probably just confiscate their stuff for a while but I wouldn't say that my parents' methods didn't work. By making such a statement, you agreed with the child that you will not go shopping, or run errands, or visit your friends, unless the child allows it. That being said I did get spankings. Of course, he also beat my mom. I consider myself extremely lucky, considering what I've come to know in my life.
