Thanks To My Parents - Even a mother lion will cuff her youngsters if they get out of line. We have forgotten that parenting isn't all flowers and lollipops. There is the part where a child learns discipline, respect, and focus, all of which I got after a paddlin' for not paying attention. All things with moderation, even this.
I liked the good ol' days when I was growing up. I was taught manners, morals, values, the meaning of hard work and that you felt better earning what you get rather than to have things handed to you. And when you messed up you got the "look".... if you didn't get it together you knew what was coming next.....the ass beat'n of your life. I didn't want my ass beat!
