Soooo love the cane on the wall Veronica - my mother kept it in the cupboard !...(a thinner whippy rattan switch) ...we love the details. This photo reminds me of an event that had a big impact on little ol' me growing up.

Moms in my locality (Atlanta suburbs 1960s) enjoyed frequent coffee mornings, as did we princesses amongst friends. The subject of smacked bottoms always seemed to arise and one morning at our house, my mummy opened the cupboard and showed moms the bottom smacker that was for the " little deer with the bear behind" !!

It wasn't a paddle, but that nasty little switch !
And mom described how naughty lil' Brenda, always got her panties pulled down and her bare botty bent over the sofa arm for a traditional whuppin '. That was discipline in our house. And naturally, mummy advocated that her guests punished their naughty daughters similarly !!

The other moms generally agreed (in keeping with those times of yore) and my mother, who was ten years' older and very strict, garnered respect for her values and practice. I
My girly friends and I were playing within earshot, but unlike my uncompromising mummy, I was cringing but also scared and excited. Strange combination !

Seems incredible recounting this today. Very strict but old-fashioned upbringings for sister and me (and many friends) have changed with the times. And since leaving home as a student and then working girl in the early 80s, I've been perpetually nostalgic and fascinated ! :-) ...thanks Brenda xx
