Here in the southern US states, spanking is – even now – pretty much a routine part of family life. The children misbehave, their parents punish and correct them. I was no exception to this growing up, and had no qualms about warming bottoms as a mom either.
One spanking does stick in my mind, and that’s because I got muddled up and neglected my duty somewhat. My sister Karen was round that day – her daughter Demi and my Janine were pretty much of an age, and thick as thieves when together.
