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.

Acting up at the table during meals has always earned spankings in our home. And it hasn't mattered whether they were 6 or 12 yr olds (or older).
Physically acting up at the table became relatively rare for mine in their teens, and pretty much non-existent for my girls. There were times they misbehaved at the table, but it was something more attitude or verbal related (sass or backtalk). If any physical goofing around happened when my children were older, it was with my son, or his friends when they visited for dinner (especially best friend).
I handled it very similarly to Anna. When the kids were younger and misbehaved at meal time, they were spanked right at the table. Turning their chair around, taking a seat, baring their bottom and putting them over my lap. But when they were older, like Jan's age, I would have also waited until after dinner. But, a spanking still would have certainly happened.
So yes, I most definitely would have given Jan a good spanking as well for his misbehavior.
