My dad's choice of punishment was the belt, yea it hurt like a dickens at the time but us kids came out OK.
My mom preferred the switch and we got our legs tingled with it many times. And if we talked back or said something bad dad would either get out the
bar of soap to lather our tongues or he would get the Tabasco sauce and dot our tongues with it...whew we sure did bounce around with the hot
sauce...I hated that one.
But we was not abused or beaten. I turned out to be a normal adult with no psychological problems from whippings with a belt or the switch.
But I see a huge problem in our society today.Certain People who commit crimes, whether it be murder, rape, child abuse, theft or what ever, they want
to blame their upbringing....They say they was abused and so forth and thats the life that they have always known...Bull Crap!
The problem with that is they want an EXCUSE to justify their behavior....
Stop blaming your past circumstance and take responsibility for your own darn actions...It just makes me sick...
And I agree with most, government needs to keep their noses out of the parents business concerning discipline. But real abuse is a different story,
you beat your child and cause it physical harm, then they need to be punished for it...But the few slaps of a belt or switch , come on!!
