Programming and providing support for this service has been a labor
of love since 1997. We are one of the few services online who values our users'
privacy, and have never sold your information. We have even fought hard to defend your
privacy in legal cases; however, we've done it with almost no financial support -- paying out of pocket
to continue providing the service. Due to the issues imposed on us by advertisers, we
also stopped hosting most ads on the forums many years ago. We hope you appreciate our efforts.

My oldest daughter's best friend lives about two blocks away, and when they met (when they were seven, about ten years ago) I also became fast friends with the other girl's mom. We are both fortunate to be stay at home/work at home moms even before it became normal, and we usually met most mornings for a walk in the neighborhood and coffee when we talked a LOT.
The most common siscussion topic of course was our kids (90%). Every so often the topic of their latest misbehavior and resultant discipline came up. My friend and I shared early on that we (and our husbands) were both believers in the value of a good spanking. At first we didn't get into details, but over time we shared observations and tips similar to how others do on these forums. For example we were candid about the need for spanking bare, how many/how fast swats were given, holding them over the knee, and how we both knew (from both redness and reactions) when a spanking should end. We also each changed oneanother's opinions once or twice. For example I once answered my friend's questions about my husband and I adding a small wood paddle to our daughter's spankings when she was about nine. Shortly afterwards my friend (who was a hand spanker and opposed to using an "object" to spank) came around and agreed with her husband (who had suggested it was also time to upgrade their daughter to the paddle) and they decided to do the same.
Based on our many talks I don't feel any of our kids (my two, her three) got a lot of spankings, maybe each got between two and four in any given year. But when we (or our husbands) did give spankings, we made them count. Our kids are all now well past what both my friend and I consider ages where spanking is appropriate. We still walk, talk, and meet for coffee, and the topic still comes up sometimes. We have between us five well behaved and (importantly) respectful teens. My friend and I both still firmly agree/believe that the occasional, but no-nonsense spankings they got when younger were very important.
