Good memories?

Not wanting to challenge you, but. Hmm. My homeschooled son makes mistakes, has bad manners sometimes, sometimes he's entirely himself! We would never think of swatting or whipping or rat handing. We talk him into better behavior. I guess that's cuz we don't have the challenge of 20 kids to enforce behavior. Or maybe because we just don't believe in corporal punishment. It doesn't work. It makes kids angry. It makes them comply not because they want to, because they fear.
Sorry but I find your story very sad. No heroes in it.

Why would any one of you accept the idea that anyone but your parents, so willing, had the right to physically punish you?
