ps. spanking is one of is not the best way to keep tiny devils in check i say
i never saw the show, but are u serious? the actually hit their parents? good grief! i cant even imagine doing that to my parents!gawd no!i can just see it now me:*raising hand to hit mom* mom: *paaap*there goes one right across my face!
i was a terror as a child but i still never dared hit my parents or yell at them when i was spanked. the worst i did was run till they caught me. or just struggle when i was in their grasp!
my mom was the worst though. she could give a mighty good spanking. in the kitchen, it would be the flat wooden spoon, in the living room, it would be the rattan cane, and in my room, either the hair brush or the plastic hangers! no such thing as "go stare at the wall and think about what you did".
IMO that's bullshit.kids are waaay to young to actually sit down and think about what they did. a spank would keep them in check. i mean, i got it loads and i turned out ok, as did my elder sister. because after giving it to us good, my parents would wait till we slept and come to our rooms and pat us or rub baby oil on our skin. of course, they thought we were asleep, but we weren't.
and despite all the whackings i still love them loads because i KNOW they care. and i never got it for small things. it was always because of something nasty that i had done.
but i can tell that my youngest sis is gonna be the most utterly spoilt brat ever. my mom had her when i was 19 (dont ask!) and she's 2 now and my parents spoil her rotten because my sister and i are not at home anymore. and baby virginia rules the house! she has such a snotty attitude sometimes that me and my sister have to give it to her.
