I grew up in the 50s when spanking naughty boys was a matter of fact. But until I was about six years old, my brother, sister, and I had never been really properly spanked.
Whenever we were naughty mom would scold, or if we were real bad she’d smack us on our bottoms a couple of times. While our behaviour improved somewhat at such measures, it didn’t last long. Finally, one day mom had decided it was time to change her method of punishment.
