Yeah well, what you´re doing is domestic discipline, not as much a DD/lg thing. As long as she is happy obeying you, you´re there when she needs you, not only as authority, but as a partner and you both stay safe, sane and there is informed concensus from both of you about what you are doing, there is nothing wrong with that.>>7745798
I think I answered what was the reality part of this survey in the last thread, here I go:¨
a little kid about, 6 or 7 y.o. I used to get it from my grandma, because I was a thoughtless kid who cried a lot over nothing at that age. It was either a short, kinda whippy cane that was´t really a cane, because it didn´t have a handle, or the wooden sppon (I´m a Slav, that´s as traditional over here as the oval, wood-backed hairbrush is for you Americans). Or, when I did somethin naugty with my hands, she would stand before me, ask "Which hand did that?" and give me the proverbial slaps on the wrist.
The butt spanking was worse, though.
Also, none of it ever taught me anything, which is pretty much the point of a spanking, I grew up into being well behaved and more stable on my own and with the help of my mother who didn´t believe in spanking and only gave me a slap in the face in extreme circumstances.
The fact I believe a spanking should always teach you something, means I probably won´t spank my kids because at the point when they´re self- aware enough to learn from a spanking, they might also be intelligent enough to be reasoned with and thus they might not need the spanking. We´ll see, once I have kids some day.
