In reply to: Zach 's message, "implement of choice" on 16:21:46 08/29/17 Tue

I grew up in Tennessee in the 60s and 70s and was the middle kid in a household with three boys. My brothers and I were usually spanked by our mother when younger, and she used either the hairbrush or wooden spoon. When older, it was the belt from our dad. Other neighbor kids I knew about were spanked with various things. I heard of beltings, paddlings and sometimes switchings from either parent and also hairbrush spankings chiefly from mothers.

I lived in the midwest and spanking was still pretty common back then, both at home and in school. The "implement of choice" varied as I grew up, but when I was a little kid just a fly swatter or hand was typical. As I grew up, the paddle was introduced about ten or so, and was used most typically on me after that age. It hung in the kitchen so it was handy all th time. I did start getting the belt some when I was in junior high, but it was rare and only used on occasions where I had really done something bad. There was a special belt used most of the time in my case . . . it was an older, thicker belt, but it was really broken in and could deliver one heck of a sting.
