    My teachers...I still remember one would pinch you at your waist..that fleshy part...he would pinch until you really feel it just short of getting blue black hehe..

    Another would like to grip the little bits of your side burns and pull upwards till you start to tip toes and then make you walk from one end of the classroom to the other.

    For the girl...he fake trying to pull some of his armpit hair by puting his hand into his shirt to scare them to listen to him. See all the girls covering their nose in panic and running away. heh

    As for caning at my school..."specialised" teachers are designated "whacker". But during Primary school it was the Principle who does it right after school assembly. I remember getting my 3 stroke when me and my friends were caught in the Science garden stealing coconuts to drink heheheheh....ah..the good old days....

    I grew up with THE CANE. It was my best friend but I dun love it very much. Parents use the cane while primary sch teachers pull and twist my ears or pinch me. Sec sch is where the cane come to its own. My disclipline master uses a thick and long cane and when it lands on my butt, it iches 1st, then burns and then felt pain ooooo so bitter sweet!: bsmilie: He everytime say: You again?!

    but its kinda strange, about grandparents and parents... parents normally just wack, but grandparents always say dun wack... and the tradition lives... and so does the irony... like my mom, she wack me when i am young, naughty or not... then when now she is a grandmother to my nephew... everytime i tell her to wack the extremely naughty one... she always say, kids cannot wack 1... then keep reasoning with him, end up he still mess up my things... only when the parents come then he really behave...
    The funny thing is people will usually whack their kids but dote on their grand kids. To them the grand kids are precious and innocent. Maybe they dare not incur the wrath of their DIL so they don't lay their hands on their grandchildren?

    If you are a pri sch kid now, your mum will probably storm to the school and whack ur chinese teacher for whacking u. The school children nowadays are untouchable. :P

    No la, not into S&M. Dun like leather, candles, whips and chains or meat hooks. But yeah, it was bitter sweet, 3 sensations in 1 wack! Ultimate combo. Those thin whippy canes on the other hand are just plain nasty and that was the choice of my parents unfortunately. Tried convincing my mom to buy a thicker cane but she refused.

    This thread is truly shocking, not only what punishments were inflicted on some members but what members would now consider doing to their own children. I was smacked as a child and sent to my room without supper but that was as far as it ever went. Personally I still think it is ok to smack a child but to use a cane or belt is assault.

    We got a lady teacher who kicked our butts with her pointed heels.

    And other lady pinched us near the side of the nipples where it hurt most.

    Correct me if I am wrong. In this modern day and age, you can land up in court and have your kids taken away from you for caning them. Reasoning, you will be charged in court for child abuse.

    It will depend on what you define as child abuse. Beating them to an inch of their lives, beating them for no apparent reasons (drunken or drug induced individual) or sexual assualt. Yes you can clearly say this is abuse for example. And even Asian courts would be able to take action against people like that.

    But when we say caning as a punishment by parents or in our old days even by teachers..there are limits and reasons for it. My parents did not do so from day one...just because they like it. You are dealing with a child as much as we want to think we all are smart kids ourselves or our kids are smart child prodigies and can listen to reason and bear natural sense of obedience you are sadly mistaken heheh. How many of us here have been told time and again...don't do this or do that but yet we persist. When you are a child sometime rationality is not top on our agenda of fun and curiosity about the world. Some stuff we learn ourselves...someone say don't touch the fire and we do and we get burnt and we never do it again. But in some other matter some form or reasoning skill or maturity is require to stop you from doing so. Sometime when you are a kid and with some kids more then others...a bit of punishment or a form of promise to punish you if you ever do it again comes into play.

    Sure which kids would like that? But to say all kids will be scarred for life by parental disipline I say that is rubbish. We have seen even adults who refuse to change their bad behavious and even after much patience and logical reasoning they still refuse to change. And yes I am sure there will be those scarred but then again they could have been beaten to the point you can call it abuse. Meaning...the beating is no longer about trying to get him or her to stop acting in a bad way but the beat becomes something the parent does out of anger and frustration and it is no longer about teaching the kid to be better.
    Its a fine line. And yes, I hated my mom for that and even wish she was dead way so many times when I was young but I had it coming too. I know it. I was pushing my luck. I try to go the bad thing and hope to get away with it. The beating does not stop me. But the promise that I will get more beating if I don't that did it for me as I got older. And as I got older my thinking change too. Why? As much as my mom knocked the devil out of me, she also showed compassion for me and looked after me even more times through my childhood then she did spending her time tanning my butt. YOu have to start to balance things. I guess that is why most of us here are joking about it NOW..as we grow we see why.

    As for those scarred by all this or who grew up feeling, they have never gotten even one slap and still managed to grow up right and found success and maybe are model citizen..well you are the lucky ones? It takes all kinds. I know of friends who took that approach and now that I have seen their kids grown older, some of them are a real pain in the ass. Just like their parent use reason with them they now use reason to screw others. But yes there were good ones who grew up very nice or at least looked and act normal too.

    As for those scarred by all these well.. we should know there will always be the weak ones. Sorry to say. We find weak individuals at all age don't we? We hear of people who lose a girl friend and go on a killing spree. A disgrunted employee got sack and start urinated in the company's coffe pot..etc. Sad but it happens. How do we spot the so called weak ones? We don't and we can't for the most part. Therefore each parent will have to be tasked with that. Biological and socially that IS the job of a parent from day one. Problem is in this modern society of paper chasing and holding down two jobs by both parents, they want to push that job to the teachers and the authorities. And we are now starting to see the cracks of it...how many times have we heard of news of abusive teens and worst part...these are kids from middle income families.

    Sure I agree talking with your kids is a good thing and one you should attempt to do first. But then again it also depend on the age of the kids. How much do you know that your kid has reached that age they know how to reason with what you tell them? Beating is also not the way. But if you have to resort to that..then you have to know what you are doing and why and also know when you should stop.

    But this is just me. It is not some world view or whatever. But for me at least I see it did work for me, what my mother did. I can see and appreciate what she did. I don't hate her for it but see how it has in some way helped me just as much as in some other ways she taught me right and wrong WITHOUT using the cane too. So did my teachers.

    For those parents or would be parent who still feel strongly about it maybe becasue you never got over your own beating, or some book told you or some expert from USA or where ever told you so...well. Fine. Roll with it. As parents you are responsible for them. You reap the rewards of what good or bad of your kids.

    Okay I might not be organising this rant properly so don't take offends okay people. heheh.. This is just my own account and if I have kids I will do what I have to to make sure they are not just kids I would be proub of but will be appreciated by others...if it means using the cane on their behinds at times I will. Why? They are not just my kids but my responsibility. If I don't want that responsibility then for goodness sake I will have a vasetomy. *snip*

    I like the caning process, initially I would get whacked, but I found out later that I did not need to stay still and was entitled to run. The end result was really fun, until my mum got my elder brother to get hold of me, to stop me from running. It became fun again when my mum would miss me and hit my brother instead. And it became even more fun when I realised that I did not need to stay at home, and was always entitled to run out of the house.
