No, not that kind of spanking.. I meant for the kids.. although I did try that once..didn't go over real well.. My parents had no problem delivering the punishment, if I bit someone (once) my mom bit me and asked how I liked it. Same thing with hair pulling ,kicking, scratching and all those other regular kid things. My father would deliver a sermon first which seemed to last an hour, (probably 5 minutes) then 3 spanks and your outta there. When it came to spanking my mother would just let lose, it was terrifying. My kids, when they were spankable age received only one, so they would at least have a story to tell. I just yelled at them once in a while and that did the trick. Their all great kids and adults.
