How were you punished as a kid?

**** was scary back in the day, but these are fun conversations to have now that people can look back and laugh. What did your parents do to punish you guys?

My mother would throw dry rice on the floor and make me kneel on it for hours on end. After a while the little grains would cut into the skin and leave scars and ish. And another time my mother got so angry that she ripped out the little rod thing to open and close the blinds and whipped me with it. Good times.

Oh, and being Latino, I am quite familiar with la chancla.

What about you guys?

Spanking. By my mom if it was something relatively minor. By my dad if I was really bad. Belt reserved for extreme bad behavior.

I'm from New England and was raised Catholic, all punishment was emotional in nature.

Of course the fact that I was a good kid who never really got into trouble probably helped.

I was spanked.

However I don't use the same approach with my child. It was a very ineffective way to modify my behavior and show consequences for my actions. I do approve of some of my parents decisions in raising me but this is not one.

Do the others that have posted approve of the way they were punished? Would you use the same methods with your child? Or do you already use the same as your parents?

“Go pick your switch”

As a kid, you think maybe a long skinny stick is best, but that felt like a whip. Then next time, you maybe pick a thicker one, but that leaves bruises and welps.

Then you just do your damnedest to never get caught.

Spanking or standing in a corner. My mom usually sent me to my room. Step-dud was the real disciplinarian- but he is a douchebag with a short and overactive temper and frequently got out of hand with his "punishment". At times he even punished me for no real reason at all except that he had a bad day and I got on his nerves somehow. He is a prick, and a lot of what he called "punishment" would certainly be considered abuse. Mom was always more understanding; I think the fact that I was basically a good kid kept me from having to deal with his idea of correction too much.

I don't buy that.

And after I was like 11 or so punishment was just "Your video games are gone for a month!"

Oy, tell me about it.

Both the dreaded chancla and the cinto were the tools my mother used to punish me whenever I misbehaved or did something wrong. And whenever she didn’t have either (or maybe she was just in the mood for it) she’d resort to just spanking me like crazy.

But I didn’t make it easy for her. If she was gonna whup my ass anyways, she was gonna have to catch me first.

She’s always been an angry person, and I think at times she used those punishments as a means of venting that anger and getting rid of her stress.

Looking back at it, I can kind of appreciate being punished like that. It would’ve been impossible for her to discipline me any other way (as her parents did the same with her and that’s all she had known), and I would’ve ended up soft and a different person if she had done otherwise.

If I ever have any kids (right, like that’ll happen) I obviously wouldn’t do the same to them. I’d try my best to be loving and I’d never raise my hand to them. If I were to punish them, I’d go for something more psychological, like taking away their toys or not letting them watch tv, and then I’d explain why what they did was wrong and teach them not to do it again with kindness and words.


Edit:
Damn, maybe I did end up soft.
That last paragraph sounds so lame.

I was physically spanked, sometimes pretty hard, but I don't mind it looking back. I wouldn't love my parents any less

All this sounds like nothing else than pure child abuse. Even by the standards of many years or decades ago, or what your parents came from.

Still child abuse.

Spanked by parents, though I deserved it.

Also, there was a nun at school who scared the hell out of students, though it was emotional abuse rather than physical abuse. Unbelievably petty about everything, she was like a cross between Hitler and the Wicked Witch of the West. Oddly enough, she seemed to have turned into Mary Poppins years later. Maybe she woke up one morning and understood the mysteries of the universe?

Sorry to hear about all the people who suffered traumatic experiences in their childhood.
