".... I'm probably of a minority view here. I think spankings punishment should be unused or rare. ....
I don't know, Michele, my wife and I raised eight children and never, not once made either my sons or daughters strip for the kind of spankings we received years ago.
Before the kids reached age five or six I would raise the fear of DAD in them with a swat on a bare thigh or forearm, after that physical punishment was never required. A stern look worked if in sight or on occasion a Bosun's Mates shout worked if not.
I will say that my sister did spank her children, not as severely or often as our mom had us, but on bare heineys and occasionally in front of others. I've seen their hind cheeks reddened but more like a slightly inflamed pink than the scarlet I remember.
Interestingly, all our children have grown up, gone to college or the military, married and are now in the middle of raising their own families.
Of course, it is obvious that many of the stories are copied or contrived. If I wrote one about being beaten to the point of hospitalization with a feather duster, with in a few days there would be several similar tales explaining abut how severe a spanking feathers can provide.
I try to keep to memories and only embellish to fill in memory gaps with the way I think things happened. Sometimes memory conflates separate incidents but that happens as you age.
The core is true, all names are pseudonyms to protect the guilty as well as the innocent.
