How were you punished when you were younger? I admit my mother was very loose with her hand, or whatever object she had at the moment, and it was not restricted to the bottom area. I highly resent her for it, got to the point I physically wanted to defend myself so I would fight back and we would get in physical fights. I don't know how much of it I can blame on her though, her mother punished her the same way. I realized this kind of punishment wasn't okay when my grandparents got guardianship of me, I was only spanked once on my bottom.(EDIT: only spanked once on my bottom by my grandparents)
Them raising their voice a little or giving me *the look* pretty much scared me out of doing wrong. If I still acted out it was to my room with no toys or anything until I apologized or something. I was more defiant with my mothers form of punishment rather than my grandparents and I think the way they punished me had everything to do with the way I would act towards them. So how were you punished and do you think it effected the way you acted or how "rebellious" you were?
