Sensational photo Veronica - one from my memoirs. Okay it's a bit before the 1960s and 70s ha-ha but it accurately shows how my strict mother dealt with me and my sister when we were naughty. She kept a dreaded stingy switch-cane in the cuoboard and we got it on our bare botties every single time as the photo shows. No qualms from her and no half-measures ! She advocated other mothers do the same ! A thin bendy switch-cane applied to sensitive skin on a completely bare botty ( as shown) was perfectly controlled, measured, appropriate, stern yet loving and safe. And we girls deserved it. The sting was ferocious, but that was the whole idea and it was perfectly harmless.

She belived that a stinging bottom does no harm and she believed lesons are learned. In fairness, She had two fairly well behaved daughters !! ...and in retrospect the "harsh" (but common) bare botty discipline did me good ! Amazing photo based on real events. Thanks. Brenda x
