Good story Cindi. I never had to pick a switch, my best friend next door always had to, but I got the BELT. It was the thick "I mean it" belt. The kind of belts worn by a man. Now, I know every story is different, and every kid was different. I can tell you this from my own experience. My dad had a short fuse and a bad temper, he would get riled pretty easy, and he didnt drink, not ever, so it was for real. I think I got more than my fair share, made me very tough. My younger sister on the other hand, never got the belt, and I don't know about her. She is okay, kinda eccentric, but she is going on thirty, and still isn't really grown up. SHe does better than she used to. I just think it depends on the child. I forgot to telly'all about my horrible weekend with my best friend, who brought her 4 year old daughter, that is for another thread, another day, but she needed some whoopings, I will say that. Shelby has never had more than a pop on the but a few times real good, but then, she wears her feelings on her sleeve, and a harsh word from her daddy, or a pop on the butt from me, and she will burst into tears, so she has a concience. SHe is a very good natured child, takes after Ian, so she is easy going. Would rather be around her family more than any of her friends. :)
