Re: Non-spankers (could also go with ppd...)
I was spanked as a child and I work everyday to go against the little voice in the head that says "hey it's easy" It can be a struggle. I'll admit that once when I was changing the girls and they were all fighting and screaming at me I reached over and popped Dylan on the butt with out even thinking of it. It was kind of like I realized what happened after the fact. I felt like a total failure. She's fine and I am fine but it just made me realize that I have to pay more attention to what I am doing. (not saying you have too I'd imagine getting bit like that would hurt and it was probably just the shock)
So it's not easy for all non-spankers. But kuddos for you for trying.
