My Alabama Shaw Family on My Father’s Side From 1861-2014

It follows that Granddaddy and Grandma raised my daddy and his eleven siblings, fairly, with the “switch,” branch cut or broke off a tree

Hi everyone,

When the Shaw children got whippings, Daddy, my aunts, and uncles responded differently.

When Uncle Gilbert was whipped, he squalled, but Daddy cried. All children submitted to their parents' whippings, one way or the other, except Uncle Jack. He said, “Unlike all my sisters and brothers who acquiesced to whippings, at the discretion of Paw (Daddy) and Monh (Mama), I only got whippings on my terms. When Paw called me, I ran to a relative's house and didn't go back home, until I thought he wasn't angry. The Shaw brothers and sisters, including my dearly beloved daddy, are some of the honest and kindest men and women I have ever known. Since there is no perfect child, a fine mixture of compassionate punishment and whippings matter in the lives of all children, with few exceptions. Good punishment makes good parent and child relationships, and I cherish the whippings my mother gave me because she wanted me to follow our family rules, which every family should have, including asking permission to go down the road and play, in her full view, with my friend girl.

As a result, in 2016, I suggest punishment and whippings, immediately after a wrongful act, that fit the child’s incorrect behavior and, again, please remember there is no perfect child. Therefore, every child in America deserves the gift of disciplining, whippings and punishment, to help them grow up morally good and become good citizens of America. Besides, children who are punished and whipped, warmly, in childhood, love their parents more than unpunished children.

Yes, please do your children a favor, stop, for the moment, what you are doing, and punish and whip them for wrong behavior, with the explanation of why and what should be done in such situations. Whippings and punishment are part of children’s growing up process.

The Shaw family will show you this in our family and so much more.
