ANSWERS: 39
  • My dad - HE had the belt! Mom was more lenient. You knew who to ask if you wanted something. LOL!
  • Neither, I have never been spanked so I really had no fear.
  • My dad left welts and my mom did not. In any case, I got it from both sides bad.
  • I didn't fear either, but my mom was the disciplinarian.
  • Mom -- let's just say she had anger issues. I always looked forward to when my Dad got home, because then we could have a sane & rational discussion about what I had (or hadn't) done.
  • My mother.
  • Mom. Her fuse was way too short.
  • my father.....he was totally over the top...a right bully....my mum once tried to smack the back of my legs with a wooden spoon as she had often threatend to...when she tried we both broke down laughing......disipline was not her strong point :)
  • Dad - He'd smack me just in case and say it was for when I did something I shouldn't that he didn't catch.
  • both, they kept me in line very well hehe. dad was the disipline, mother was the screamer hehe. im a great kid as part of it though, didnt think so back then
  • My dad all the way. I still fear and loathe him. I know people that are like him too. Very close-minded, stubborn, and oppressive. These people are mostly male, and they generate the most negative feelings inside me. Because of my dad, I have so much hatred. It has caused problems with how I relate with others as well. I hate anybody who is anything like my dad. If they talk over me, avoid understanding me, they don't listen to any other suggestion besides their own, ridicule what they don't know or understand, and they are mentally and emotionally destructive people. Does anybody have any supportive or helpful comments or suggestions that can help me through this?
  • My dad, he would spank me. He would ground me too...couldn't step out the door at all unless it was to school.
  • I know it might sound funny but mom dad was always the nice one
  • Disciplined everyday for one reason or another and always by dad. He still terrified me till the day he died.
  • well i cant say i really feared any of them, but my mum definitely was the 'mouth piece' haha!! she did all the shouting,...i knew when to vacate the premises!! lol
  • Dad. I didn't get yelled at or spanked often but when i did it was definetely worse when it was dad.
  • my mother, she was hardcore
  • My father he always gave me this look right before he spank me.
  • I am happy to say I was never afraid of my parents, because if they ever disciplined me, which was rare, they showed me greater love thereafter. My parents were careful to follow this counsel, from a book called the Doctrine and Covenants of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Joseph Smith): 41 No power or influence can or ought to be maintained...only by persuasion, by long-suffering, by gentleness and meekness, and by love unfeigned; 42 By kindness, and pure knowledge, which shall greatly enlarge the soul without hypocrisy, and without guile— 43 Reproving betimes with sharpness, when moved upon by the Holy Ghost; and then showing forth afterwards an increase of love toward him whom thou hast reproved, lest he esteem thee to be his enemy; 44 That he may know that thy faithfulness is stronger than the cords of death. Doctrine and Covenants 121:41-44 http://scriptures.lds.org/en/dc/121/43#43 I think this is what God tries to do with us, if we listen. Better than discipline, however, is example.
  • I didn't fear either of them. I respected them both, however, and didn't want either of them to be disappointed in me.
  • My Dad.
  • My mum. I still do.
  • Dad. He had a vicious temper. Not violent, just loud and scary.
  • My Mother... She was always yelling and slamming things... She never seemed happy... It sunk in more when my father disciplined us... But I never feared him... Because he only did it when we really needed it!
  • My Father. When I was a kid he would get in my face also used the belt. As I got older and bigger he would shovel . I was actually scared of him not just when mad. He knew I feared him. I am not an aggressive person and I never want to hit him. I feared him so much I didn't realize he was actually scared of me. In high school he never touched me because the way I was, I was likely to snap.I was over a ft. taller and twice his size.I was in football,power lifting, and boxing training. But he makes me feel like a child.
  • My mom.
  • My mom was the disciplinarian, and I found myself over her knee more often than I wanted to. But no, I didn't fear her - she disciplined with love, and I felt that too.
  • Dad. I felt the sting of the belt on my rear end on numerous occasions. But I don't feel I was abused. I'm thankful he loved me enough to spank me when I needed it.
  • Dad :-) !
  • My mother and you never knew what would set her off. We walked on egg shells around her. She would use some pretty scary measures to discipline us. Feared her? Sure did.
  • I feared my mom because of her violent temper and angry outbursts, she gave us terribly humiliating hidings, with the first item she picked up, and the blows landing all over our bodies. At times she would literally chase us down the road with the intent to beat us. She always seemed so unhappy and dis-satisfied with life, although there was nothing lacking. Now she has Addisson's Disease and therefore has calmed down dramatically, and I suppose now that all the kid's are out the house... maybe she wasn't ready for twin boys who were naughty as anything!
  • My mother. She used violence.
  • Gheez, I was scared to death of my Grandmother. We lived with her for a while when we first moved to the states. The scary part wasn't the spanking. It was when she tried to hug you and kiss you on the cheek later to make up. She didn't have a tooth in her head and she dipped snuff, which would run down both sides of her mouth. When your a kid & see something like that coming at ya, it causes some very troublesome memories.
  • My late father. He was feared by all his children.
  • Dad. My mom grabbed my ear a few times. Dad did . . . a little more than that. I thank them both for caring enough.
  • My mother. She didnt get angry often but when she did...watch out!! My dad was always full of empty threats...still is. lol
