Default Spanking or other form of discipline...Keep it dockside!

'So the cussing thread brought up my memories of being disciplined as a child.

My parents had an 18" wooden ruler with a metal edge insert. That was their tool for discipline right up till my brother and I were in our teens, and one of us got beat so hard the ruler split lengthwise and the metal edge came out.......it was ineffective at that point.....we still laugh about that as a family.

How and what was the discipline in your house? Do you use that on your children?

Big Ole Wooden spoon. Same outcome. Spoon finally splintered but we were on the right track by then. Also hilarious family story. Suspect many others will post similar.

In junior high the Principal had a paddle made out of plexiglass with holes drilled in it.
I had my ass whipped with it several times. I was on a first name basis with the Principal...

Striped ass with a belt when I deserved it, and that meant I was disrespectful to my mom and dad handled it. He was personally lenient with me. Same at my house.

Belt when we were young. Belt for our kids.

belt was the normal,
once was a starter rope for the lawn mower that I was suppose to be running to help my brother mow my grandmothers lawn.
that was the last time I remember getting whipped.
It finally sunk in, and I became a good kid
same for mine

I really think that the only talking to the kids when they do bad is what is wrong with them today.
no big deal to them for doing what is against what they have been told is wrong

Just gotta put the fear of God into 'em, that's all. Lol.

A buddy of mine, who's kids were what I would refer to as "Brady Bunch" good gave me that advice. He didn't specifically say what he meant by that though. BTW, he's several years older than me and he and his Wife had kids early so he was a bit ahead of me when it came to raising kids.

So one day, not long after he gave me that advice, my oldest son (who was only 4 yrs old at the time) did what would've been about the worst thing he did up until that time. Which wasn't anything really bad. After all, a 4 yr old can't do anything too bad. But anyway, when that happened, I thought about what my buddy said. So I got in my 4 year old son's face and yelled at him like a drill sergeant would yell at a private. Just a couple inches from his face, top of my lungs (which is really damn loud), probably spitting and my veins bulging out of my neck. Lol. I could see a lot of fear in his face and eyes. He was really scared. Only had to do that once. Did the same thing with my younger son when he was about that age.

That was it. Never had to strike either him or his younger brother the whole time they were growing up. They're 23 and 21 now and both turned out good. Definitely better than they're father. Lol.

You spank a kid now with a belt or anything that hurts them you can get in some serious trouble.
If they mention to a teacher at school. The teacher is required to report it or else they can get in trouble to.

Very fine line now a days.

Cane st school and heavy leather/rubber 'strap' at home. Father was s school principal of the take no prisoners variety so well versed in using a strap. Wife got the jug cord at her home, but we raised our kids with no physical discipline. Kids have turned out great so far ( teenagers now) and while I have nothing against appropriate smacking etc I am glad we didnt use physical discipline. Just takes s little more self control and effort to not smack them when provoked.

My parents never beat me but scared the shit out of me a bunch of times. That seemed to have worked..maybe too good. I'm still a generally boring person who follows the rules. And really, I'm not 100% sold its gotten me any further in life, but I do know I missed out on a lot as a teenager.

Edit: Thinking about it, I do remember once dad back slapping me when I was being a smart ass, know it all teenager to him. I deserved it.

I remember I had a 4th grade social studies teacher hit me across the back once with a wide strap (hard!) when I was talking in class. It left a pretty good welp. It didn't really teach me anything other than wanting to go back later and whip that old bitch's ass when I got older. Unfortunately, she died before I got old enough to do it.

I'm pretty convinced whipping people doesn't really teach them anything, and only will make them mad, in some cases for a long time. I'm still salty about that. I'd have liked to whipped her back with a strap to see if she would stop talking.

Ohh good old memories...

I got the leather belt quite a few times, my father called his belt “The Psychologist”....

My mom was pretty good with the flying shoes/heels, but we got good at moving quick.

got me and my brother right on track...

Time out, taking privileges, adding chores are better choices. Spanking is pretty ineffective long-term, teaches your kids to hit when they’re angry, and puts parents at risk of a CPS visit. Any kind of discipline that leaves a mark is risky.
