Did you ever get a belt to the bottom?
Did you deserve it?

Yes.


Resented and hated both my folks for it too. What put me over the top was getting the belt for something I was not guilty of. Years later when I was angry at my own kids and the inner Mojo wanted to strike I remembered what it felt like. I've spared the rod and my kids are better people for it...

If the 1st part is true, that's creative.

Very common, and good choice.

Severely, and I mean they would have gotten some serious prison time were it to occur today.  The school even knew.  It got me out of dressing down for gym class due to severity.

Now, ask me if I believe in corporal punishment, yes I do.  I agree that there are times when a firm hand is needed to get the attention of the child, but not a belt.  The parent should feel every bit of what they're doing. 

Now ask me if I ever deployed this type of discipline in any form, no I haven't.  I was not confident that I would use correctly, and wanted to break the extreme cycle of abuse I experienced.  I'm sure that my kids will use it though.

1- Yes

2- No

What getting "the belt" (he had this wide white belt that hung in his closet for that purpose) from my dad taught me and my sisters was how to sneak and lie better so we didn't get caught the next time around.  Oftentimes ... about 50% of the time ... the spankings weren't even justified.  They were just dad being crabby and taking offense because the driveway wasn't quite cleaned to his specifications.

My two children are 22 and 18 now and have never gotten a spanking from me.  It's never been necessary.  And I'm pretty proud of them both.  I think they're the better for it.
