Before we would go into a store, or any public place really, my mom would pull a small paddle out of her purse and swear on all that is holy, if we got out of line even once, she'd spank us in public.
Let me tell you, it only had to happen once and you remembered it. We all ****** toed the line.
Looking back, my mom wasn't all that scary. A mouse of a woman, really. As I've grown to know her as a person, and not just a parent, I've realized she's actually an extreme pacifist.
But to a 6 year old me, she was Marcel ****** Wallace. Not a bitch to trifle with.

I don't even remember her ever yelling at us. Ever. She didn't believe in spanking in anger. Often leaving us in our rooms to contemplate the consequences of our actions, and the impending spanking, while she calmed down.
She simply realized that children are illogical, with incredibly underdeveloped brains. You cannot always reason with a child, but all children, every where, always understand the universal message of a spanking.

I didn't really understand the truth of this until years after I left the military and looked back on my Basic Training. As mean and cruel as your Drill Instructors may first appear, they actually care about their trainees. A lot. They don't want you getting killed, or hurt. They want you coming home safe. They also know that to keep you safe, they have way to much to teach you and not nearly enough time to do it. They don't have the time to go over something twice or slow down and explain it. They need your undivided attention 110%.

Best way to do that? PAIN.

You don't listen= PAIN
Don't get it the first time= PAIN
Don't follow instructions to the letter= PAIN
Get out of line= PAIN

When we realize the the consequences for not getting it right is physical pain, something happens in our little monkey brains that makes us pay absolute attention and stop ******* around. Instantly.

Works for recruits.
Works for kids.

And in both cases its done out of love.

Thank you for that. Nobody seems to understand anymore that the argument isn't that "if you don't spank your kids they will misbehave," it's that pain is one of the quickest forms of operant conditioning. That's why I ever so slightly disagree with the "cruel and unusual punishments" clause. In Singapore you can be beaten with a cane for vandalism. Guess how often vandalism happens there. They have one of the lowest crime rates in the world. Physical pain is a language that nearly everyone speaks.

Trips to the beach? Cooking with mama? Dressing like a stud?
These things would only prove how awesome your childhood was.

What? I wore flip-flop, used a wooden spoon, and had a belt to keep my pants up. I still did a lot of awesome stuff.

My mom's wooden spoon had a hole in the center to reduce air friction. It hurt.

Did your dad make a wooden paddle, drill holes in it for less wind resistence, and call it "The Heat for the Seat"?  Yeah, you ain't got nothin' on my childhood.
