Re: S/O Am I the only one that had no idea spanking was still allowed in some states?
I knew it was still being done in our state but each school district makes up its own rules, and they stopped in ours a long time ago, I think two decades ago. I was never paddled but my brother was. He would rather that over having the principal send a letter home to my parents. Truth is, it would've been much worse for him if my parents found out. A quick paddle was all he ever got and he still laughs about it now, but my father would've been less, um, forgiving.
IMO - I hated it then and hate it now. Just the thought of someone spanking my child and not telling me about it sends chills up my spine. I just found it interesting that my brother would always think it was funny while I found it despicable.
