Sad but oh so true, I'm 37 and we got the paddle in middle school. You might have done something once but you sure as hell didn't do it again!

Kids man what happened? I will raise mine like i was raised with many of the ass beatings, cause i am sure he will pull the same stupid shit i pulled, just like my dad i always told he did before i did. lol i never really belived that until i have a kid of my own.
