Almost everybody at church spanked their youngsters and there was no social stigma to doing it. In reality it was very accredited of and never spanking a misbehaving baby might earn disapproval. My family anticipated a lot obedience from us children. When i used to be younger this lesson was realized after frequent spankings. I could be taken to her pal’s beauty store and sat down on a chair and advised to sit quietly. Anyone in the waiting room may see my red leg and see my tears however mom all the time acted as though she was doing her responsibility.
