Spare the rod spoil the child

As a child of the 70's, spanking was a part of life. If you did something you weren't supposed to, said something you weren't supposed to or didn't hold up your end of an agreement, there was always a good chance a spanking was in your near future. My dad was typically the one who enforced this punishment and it was almost always with a belt. The few times my mom would be the one, you never knew what she'd use. To this day, I remember getting it with a shoe that was in her reach. Should be interesting to hear what YOU recall. lol
