Tell about a time when you were punished as a child.
I was a little angel, I never got punished!!
Yea right! LOL
I don't remember why I was ever punished, it was probably because I was fighting with middle brother or I was being a smart-ass! (Like I still am, heehee) I got the belt a few times and a few switches from the willow tree out back. Usually I was sent to my room. I didn't mind that so much, I would just read or play with something and be fine with that, in fact it gave me a break from being picked on by the older siblings.
A few years ago I was talking with middle brother, reminiscing about our childhood. He said he remembers being punished a lot! That he was always being spanked or sent to his room or some other horrible (in his mind it was horrible) punishment. I told him; "Duh! Do you not remember what you used to do to me?" LOL
Middle brother was only 16 months older than me and mom often said he didn't get to be the baby long enough. He would steal my bottle or pinch me to make me cry. As we got older he would do the meanest things to me and we both got in trouble when I fought back.
This makes me think of parents now-a-days who don't believe in spanking their kids. I think that if a parent has anger issues they should vow to never spank their kid, it might go way past punishment into a beating that isn't fair to the kid. But I also know some kids that need a good swat on the behind!
Were y'all punished or spanked as a child? Anyone care to share a story?
