    I also well remember the spoon. But at least I didn't live in Eddie Murphy's house, where the boomerang shoe was the maternal disciplinary tool of choice:

    "Why'd you eat the ice cream off the floor?"

    "But I..."


    **cue the theme from "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly"**

    The fear of my mother's wooden spoon was worse than the wooden spoon itself. Didn't matter who started the fight in the back seat of the station wagon on long trips, it could come at any time.

    My stepbrother and I lived in fear of the wooden spoon, until we realized that by flexing our buttocks at the moment of impact we could break that son of a bitch.

    I've never seen my mom so pissed.

    I really have to laugh at this school of thought ... if you spank a 3-year-old, it's because you're unable to deal with them in a mature manner. Yeah. That's what I was thinking.

    "I don't know what to dooooo ... I'm going to ... uh ... uh ... uh ... I'll SPANK their ass!"

    No. If I believed my 3-year-old needed a spanking, it was behavior with a purpose ... to adjust their behavior.

    P.S. Just because one has a child turn out OK doesn't necessarily mean they're responsible for it. The young person just may have been pre-disposed to be a good person.

    I keed, I keed. Just that it cried out for a connection to the "Delirious" threadjack. ;D

    On a serious note, Junkie's post speaks for me too. Well done.

    Too young to be spanked? No. Too young to be beaten? Absolutely. If people don't have the common sense to differentiate between the two ... sigh.

    Oh, that's just plain horseshit. Your way ain't the only way.

    And I say that as someone who has never laid a hand on my child. Doubt I ever will. So I don't have an itchy trigger finger. But that's a tool that's always at my disposal, if necessary.

    3 and under? So they get a pass on the "Terrible 2's," like it's some kind of invisible restraining order. "Ooooooh, you are so mine in a year and a half when you turn four!"
