In praise of the switch

I enjoy reading the stories on your site, but I do notice that very few of them mention the use of a switch for disciplining children. I have extensive experience of the switch, both as a recipient and an administrator, and thought you might like to hear something about it.

I’m from the southern US, where the use of the switch, even today, is more common than you might think. My own children whip their kids with one when they misbehave, and only a few days ago I witnessed a neighbour of mine using a switch very effectively on her little girl’s bare bottom.
