I do remember over hearing conversations of adults discussing spankings. Particularly I remember my mother telling a friend that she thought we kids in the family wanted to be spanked and it helped us when we were contrary and difficult. I thought, how wrong she was as I feared them and the associated pain. She spanked my older silblings more than me and that bothered me, being the fair haired pet.
So it was a relief when I did get spanked, especially the few times with a hair brush. I was by nature a cooperative kid but somehow I felt I deserved a spanking.

Thanks for your replies!

I've never really spoken to my mum about the sudden escalation in her disciplinary methods. I felt being spanked was humiliating as well as painful, and obviously being spanked bare bottom added to that feeling.

My mum grew up in a time where children were seen and not heard - an expression my maternal grandmother used - and she perceived my boisterousness as potential delinquency. It may be coincidental that she began to spank me more formally then, however I think she was influenced by my friend's mother whose parents were tyrannical.

I remember James' sister spilling something on the carpet and her mother hysterically cleaning the spillage before dragging his sister off to a room upstairs and, despite the noises being muffled, being quite perturbed by the crying and screams I could hear. She was a few years younger than us, and I wouldn't have been more than ten years old, probably younger.

I never feared my parents in the same way as James did, and given some of the accounts I have heard or read about, coupled with my own memories and experiences, I think I got off very lightly. My dad was a quiet, henpecked man and my mum was more neurotic than fierce, and I think she felt that I would become a hooligan if I was not respectful of authority! After she saw A Clockwork Orange she had nightmares, so she said, and football hooliganism and later punk both seemed to trouble her. Taken in that context it is not hard to see what motivated her.
