How Did Your Parents Used To Punish You?

When I was younger and would get in trouble, it was usually like no TV or something like that. They also used to threaten to take things away if I didn't, for example, tell them what my sister REALLY was doing at a certain time, etc.

They used to threaten to take away:

~My typewriter
~My books
~ALL of my U2 stuff (there was a particularly bad incident where Dad said he would even take all of my U2 stuff off of my walls...which I had spent hours painstakingly decorating)
~When I got older, my car...which I never understood because I had paid for my car...how could they tell me I couldn't drive it??

How about the rest of you?

Without going into detail, I endured very sad punishments and therefore will just leave it at that *shrug*

My parents used to punish me by refusing to engage in meaningful conversation about the problem at hand, as a result of which I returned the favour.

Mom: lots of yelling maybe a spanking.

Dad: lots of quiet seething anger and long drawn-out sighs. Which were worse.

Grounding as I got older, and lots of "talking to" ...the phrase "we need to talk" to this very day fills my heart with dread.

Naw.. there's no way to ever know what we'll say Growing up and punishment is a tricky, tricky conversation!

To lighten, though, my boyfriend's usual childhood punishments generally meant No Nintendo For the Night or perhaps (the horror! the horror!!!) Doing the Damn Dishes!
He had it good!

Maybe we should talk about that which makes us happy thinking back to our childhoods?

I liked the beach, my cats, and the ice cream man every afternoon coming through my neighborhood! I loved the smell of coconut from my suntan lotion... loved freshly cut grass and roller skates

We lived in a quiet country neighborhood on a dead end gravel road. Our house was centrally located, so all the neighborhood kids usually came to our house. We also had "cool" parents...Dad would play sports with us, and Mom would make us Kool-Aid and snacks.

My Dad used to smack us in the very extreme cases (two or three times). Otherwise it was just a bit of shouting and that hard look on my Mum's face which makes you want to merge into the chair.

One time though, when I was five or six years old and my Mum was annoyed with me, she said that if I didn't behave she would go away and be a Mum to some other, nicer children. That had me crying in bed for days,

Mother...every quiet way about her, rarely gets angry but always gets her point across. I never saw her bad side, yet...I never dared.

Father...gets stressed easily and uses verbal assualt over physical.

Seeing I am a good boy, I rarely got these treatments

When I was little I got the usual shouting and occasional smack on the behind.

As a teenager, it was just my mum and I so we would have awfully vicious rows. We both have bad tempers and tend to get real nasty when we argue... so let's just say our house was not always a pleasant place to be. Having said that though, we usually get on brilliantly, it's just that when you spend so much time with only one person it's easy to rub each other up the wrong way. Strangely enough I never got grounded.

MONA, in Church History: When you become pope, you get to pick any name, right? So...could you be, like, Pope Chocolate Pudding? WHAT are YOU laughin' at?
