The little magic stick

Mom was a schoolteacher and she was a convinced believer in good behaviour. When we (her children, one boy and two girls) were naughty or had bad school results, we knew that we were ‘in for it’ and from the age of nine to 15 years, she gave us a lot of ‘bottom warmings’.

In school, she had the reputation of being very strict (it was in the early 60s) and she still applied corporal punishment in the classroom: she kept a two-tailed tawse and a school cane in her desk for the appropriate occasions when punishment was required.
