  • Yes.

    I had actually gotten through my entire birthday party before saying something bratty (I had a big mouth). The rest of my special day was cancelled though and I wasn't allowed to play with my presents until I was done being punished. I think I was like 7 or something.

    My parents beat the living snot out of my rebellious behind (in the form of spanking). Many a spoon was broken over my butt. I can't say it was abusive (unnecessary, yes) but I can say that I most likely will not be spanking my own children. "Spare the rod spoil the child"...my parents wanted to make sure that didn't happen lol.

  • glossyblack, was a figure of speech... punish you and then restrict you from something as well, over something you felt you shouldn't have gotten in trouble over in the first place?
