    my worst one was when me and my best friend played soccer in the appartment when it was raining outside....stupid idea i guess but it was fun back thenicon_razz.gif...at least until i made a shot which made the whole television set fell down.....icon_sad.gificon_sad.gificon_sad.gif it made a uge bump and broke completely

    fair to say my parents where not to amused about it ....my bare ass had a looong talk with a belt.....icon_wink.gif

    Lol

    I find that the kids with the most beatings are the most damaged... in one way or another that isn't always apparent to them. I'm definitely not sharing stories as it is a little weird for you to make this your first post.

    My mother used a yard stick. That was bad enough but if it broke on your ass, look out, then she was really pissed. Oh and don't knock over her iron or you'll see the wrath of a woman with a knocked over iron!

    Ah but alas, we all survived with little physical or emotional damage like kids today that have no 'bright line' as their boundaries.

    I got plenty of spankings myself for practically nothing.
    I hope God puts all our parents through the spanking machine.

    My straitlaced mom used a riding crop. It was decades before I realized the connotation and I have yet to ask her "Mom, you never rode a horse, where'd you get a riding crop?"

    Try having your mother catch you naked in your room and beat the hell out of you and call you a fag. See if you can look back on that and laugh. icon_neutral.gif

    Dad used a razor strop. Mom used a 1/2" dowel (The Stick.) The Stick hurt a lot worse, and left more marks.

    I'm sure I got beat for a lot of things that I did, but the only ones I remember are getting beat for things that they did. And I either told someone else, or they just found out that I knew about it.

    The "joke" in my family is that I got a beating everyday of my childhood for things I did and shouldn't have done, things I didn't do but should have done, and just on general principal. I grew up resentful, angry, and distrustful of and hostile towards all authority. Spanking, beating, or whooping your child is the lazy parent's method of discipline. It wasn't until years later I realized my "discipline" problems were ADHD based.

    Corporal punishment has a place I believe. Certainly not a lot like my mother and step father did, but my dad very rarely smacked my arse, but the thing that stopped me from doing it again was the shame that was associated with it.

    Hitting for hitting's sake doesn't inspire discipline.

    In my opinion, some light and rare corporal punishment is good for a child or young person who is being utterly stupid and uncooperative. I wouldn't like to hit my son or daughter, but I will do it if they need it.

    My brother and I got very few spankings as a kid and that all stopped by around age 6.
    Dad ruled us better with his low, towering voice.
    He kept the 2 of us in line without the hand or belt.
    We learned early on who ran the show and what it took to be loved rather than hated.

    I got at least one a day because I was mouthy...sometimes it was more than one. I can't say I have any scars or damage because of them and I'm still mouthy.

    You beat a child, you are a terrible human. If you are such a loser as a parent that your response to an out of control kid is to beat them, you should never have bred.

    Unfortunately most new parents learn parenting by the experience they had as a kid. I was fortunate to have a wife that said 'you know there are ways to discipline without hitting a child'. She actually taught me so much more than anyone. Time out is a wonderful tool that's easy on their butt! LOL There are many effective ways to discipline without hitting and even more ways of encouraging so that discipline itself is less frequent.

    When you say "whoopin" I'm going to assuming more of a symbolic whoopin, as opposed to a beating or something that does lasting (even for a day or two) physical damage like broken skin, bruises, etc.

    I got three whoopins growing up. My mom was the daily discipline person, and when I did something REALLY BAD and INTENTIONALLY then it was sent up to my dad, who held court and wound up whooping me three times for intentional violations of grave situations. Once I stayed out until 10pm when my father had said to be home when the street lights came on at 9pm. Another time I beat up my brother unjustly, and another time I forget, but I remember the fear of the whooping.

    He used a belt, no buckle of course, and I was allowed to keep my underware on. It was really more symbolic than painful, and there really is no substitute for that.

    I'm all about stopping child abuse, and against beating a child, but there comes a certain point when you're dealing with a 5 year old, and you say get out of the street, and he's saying "but why, you're not God,it's my life." You can sit there and debate him with your new age parenting techniques, or you can yank his punk ass out of the street and swat his rear like a good parent would. At certain times, force must meet force. The lazy way is whooping too much, or never at all. It's about a gentle touch, literally and figuratively.

    I was a good kid, the smartest and the most polite and class. Sadly my class was full of idiotsicon_razz.gif

    My father was very nervous person, once he was repairing engine and he did something wrong, I was around and of course it was my fault, so he threw hammer in me. Funny isn't it?

    The problem is that many parent either 1) don't know any other means of getting their point across and feel that hitting (spanking) is effective and 2) many are in a rage when it happens and this leads to much more of an abuse than a discipline.

    I'm not for hitting the kids but will admit that I've done it. Every time I've done it I've felt like s#$t afterwards because I'm not convinced that it did anything to teach my child and only served to relieve my aggression. Not a good way to do this.

    On the flip side are the parents that discipline by simply telling little johnny that we don't do that 'now do we'. Thank you little sweetheart and then he flips them off. I think this is just as ineffective as hitting the child and potentially even more damaging in the long run. It's all about teachable moments and effective ways of getting the point across while maintaining composure, authority and respect. Parenting is NOT always easy and it is NOT always fun.

    We had a coach in Jr. High who thought it was funny to have us all line up and bend over on Fridays. Then he'd walk along behind and slap us on the ass with his belt (not hard) "for all the things he didn't catch us doing" during the week.

    (Maybe he hit some of the other guys harder icon_wink.gif I dunno.)
