I am reminded of the mother who took her "sensitive" child to school and
told the teacher "if he misbehaves, just slap the child next to him and
I agree with your statement above. Generally corporal punishment should be,
IMO, reserved for the period of time prior to the age of reasoning. After
that, other types of discipline are probably better.
My last whipping was after I got out of the Navy and was in college (I was
about 19). I said something disrespectful to my mother - my dad warped me
and I deserved it! If there was a Guiness Record for whippings I would
probably hold it - and I deserved every one!
