I expect many people visiting this website often wonder how prevalent the practice of spanking still is with today’s parents. I had one recent experience which, if nothing else, proves it hasn’t entirely died out.
I live in the north east of England. I don’t drive, and travel pretty much everywhere by bus. On this particular day, I was waiting in the shelter of a bus stop not far from my own home. The only other occupants were a mother and her young daughter, and an older, middle-aged woman.
