I wrote elsewhere on this site about the spanking my sister and I received. My parents had a very defined way of spanking. I thought that they made the event very important and memorable. My father would take me to my room. Open my pants and place me across the bed. Then he would take my pants and underwear down and hold me there for some time. Then my mother would come over and sit on the bed and start to spank while my father held my legs. When I covered my bottom with my hands, my mother would hit the hand forcing me to remove the hands from my bum. The spanking would continue until my bottom was a red hue. Has any person on this website was given a punishment in such a defined way? Do you such a punishment is abuse? Would you give such a punishment to your child?
