Hi everyone,

Daddy voiced, "The children preferred Paw’s to Monh’s whippings” and told the way whippings looked at Granddaddy’s house.

When Paw whipped us, he used a switch off a peach tree, talked, whipped, explained why we were whipped, and whipped some more. The process lasted as long as Paw needed to explain and punish us for what was on the whipping list and, instead, what we should have done.”

What a great way to whip children. Indeed, no child should be whipped without understanding why and what should have been done. That’s absolutely brilliant discipline. If this is done today, children will view their parents’ discipline as love and consider them their best friends.

Daddy continued, "Now Monh was different. When she whipped us, she put our heads between her legs, turned us upside down, and whipped our bottoms with cotton stalks that had bolls. You know that hurt. One time, Jack bit her legs, while she had him turned upside down. Monh gave him a worse whipping. Monh whipped us more than Paw because we were around her more."

I ask everyone to put in place family rules and clear consequences of violations, including punishment and whippings in 2016.
