I live in a small town and have thus been brought up with old-fashioned, small town ways. My parents always went out to the movies once per week and left me in the charge of a 20-year-old girl named Lucy, who lived at the end of the street. I always thought that at 16, I was too old to be babysat – but my parents disagreed.
Although my parents never spanked me themselves, they always gave Lucy permission to use spanking as a means of punishment. This made me cringe as I knew I was too old for spanking.
