The "implement of choice" changed as I grew up. Initially, just the hand was used. But then flyswatters, the kitchen spatula, a wood paddle, and then, finally, a belt. I guess you could say the implement chosen by my folks was "age appropriate."

At home it was the switch until I was 7 or so. After that it was the belt. At school, where spankings were common, it was always the paddle.

Most of my friends were the same. The switch was common and changed over to a belt at some point. As normal as I sounds, I don't recall anyone ever speak of getting it with a hairbrush.

I grew up in Alabama in the 50s and 60s. Spankings were common in schools and there were plenty of 'switch trees' around.
