Back in the day, it was considered normal to be physically reprimanded when you did something that was considered wrong. Who your parents were, and how egregious the act was that you committed determined what was used. Whether it was a hand, a belt, a switch, a wire, a shoe, a hanger.... you get my drift.
Now in 2022 many parents, have decided against using physical measures to reprimand their children. Some believe the punishment itself leave a longer lasting effect on the child then the original act they committed. Believing that communicating with the child and using other restorative practices lend quicker to changed behavior. While other parents feel when you spare the rod you definitely spoil the child.
