I left it relatively late to begin spanking Stefan, my only child. Although both my elder sister Claudia and I had often had our bottoms smacked and caned by our parents growing up, I felt as if corporal punishment had really taught me nothing and it seemed to me old-fashioned and rather brutal.
Claudia, by contrast, was an enthusiastic spanker. She had three children, two girls and a boy, and I frequently witnessed one or other of them being put across their mother’s knee to have their bottoms tanned when I visited. Whether as a result of such discipline or not, Claudia’s children always seemed in check and polite.
