That's not nearly the worst, my dad would strap me with a belt until I couldn't sit for the rest of the day. And, if I received a paddling at school, which was common because I was a little s***, I'd get spanked at home too.

I don't think I'll be able to spank my daughter, I'm too much of a wimp. Personally, I don't think parents really thought of their kids the same way back then, when I was young we were seen more as expendable resources and barely-tolerable annoyances.

Wasn't it Bill Cosby that said: I brought you into this world, and I can take you out. I'll make another one just like you!

I for one am glad for my own sake that times have changed!

I spent the majority of the First Grade with my desk in the corner or in the coat closet - sometimes with the closet door shut! I'm pretty sure that today I would have been diagnosed with ADD or some other silliness - I think I was just bored. I hated sitting in my desk, and I would come up with any excuse to get out of my desk. I had the shortest pencils in class!

Never too late, get diagnosed now you might be able to retire on a section 8.

Don't hit her just tell her off when she's wrong 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Also don't spoil her too much........... :P

I do, but she still cries, she can tell when I'm scolding her and it really upsets her. Little tears start falling and she says "Papa, no, no" and, well, like I said before, big marshmallow. rolleyes.gif My wife is much more likely to give the "I'll give you something to cry about" speech. I can already tell that she's going to be the "heavy".




This is what happens when you go wild on a hot rod build and then decide that you need to sell it. Ouch! It's one of the finest I've seen, but the seller isn't being very realistic. $80k is being realistic.

When I was growing up, my mother was the one that would yell, and my father would never raise his voice....but after he spoke his piece, I felt about two inches tall.....master of the guilt trip, he was.
