In reply to: Luke 's message, "Parents talking about spanking with friend's parents?" on 20:19:10 02/28/18 Wed

It didn't happen to me directly as my mother was already a proponent of "a good spanking" for most of our childhood misdeeds. But one time a new family with a girl and her two brothers joined our Church and the girl wound up in my classroom. She acted quite spoiled and her younger brothers were pretty unruly in Church and Sunday School. Some of the mothers in the congregation must have counseled those parents about discipline and spankings because about a month later the father marched one of the little boys out in the middle of a sermon when the boy refused to stop kicking the pew in front of them. A few minutes later they returned and the boy's face was red and he had both hands covering his bottom. I imagine his bottom was red too. Anyway, the boys started to behave themselves and made friends with the rest of the kids. Their older sister never really became close friends with me but we would talk on occasion, sometimes in school and sometimes after Church. She told me that she wished they had never joined our Church - she was happy for her younger brothers to finally be disciplined but in her mind she was too old for spankings and should have been immune. I think we were 9 or 10 years old. Apparently her mother had taken the wooden spoon to her bare bottom on several occasions as well as using it frequently on the backsides of her brothers. I was not sorry for her at all!

Luke,

If my parents needed any encouragement it happened before I was aware of it. They never needed a push as far as I can remember.

They talked about my spankings and those of my brothers frequently, or at least it seemed that way then. It was just a matter of fact like James' parents.

I didn't need any encouragement, it was the way I was brought up. I followed the example set for me and what I believe is effective and right.

My parents may have influenced other parents to take a more strict hand with their children. Not sure but they were not shy about letting other parents how you kept boys in check.
