Hi everyone,

Granddaddy and Grand Mama decided to raise Daddy, my aunts, and uncles to be morally upright and groom them to become their farm staff. They believed this could only be achieved through discipline. So, with both goals in mind, they chose to establish rules. Violation reaped whippings.

The moral and work ethic goals my grandparents set for their children were achieved through creative and harsh whippings. Daddy told me, "I should tell you that Monh (Mama) and Paw (Daddy) kept us in line when I was growing up. Mainly, they whipped us. Paw and Monh whipped me every now and then, when I stayed out, until night time.”

Every child, regardless of social level, today, needs punishment and whippings that fit their wrong behavior. If they aren’t punished and whipped, while children, they are likely to spend their life time thinking, speaking, and acting wrong, which could yield them perpetual unhappiness and numerous enemies, even though, it is friends they want and need.

Since there is no perfect child, every parent can gift their children with passionate punishment and whippings.
