[quote]lol i can agree with that but when i was young i was kicked across the driveway which was about 6 feet wide cuz i tried to help work on a car n i guess i did more gettin on dad's nerves than helping [quote]
I'm sitting here biting my tongue because I'm not sure how much I should comment on your above quote.
So, in advance, I'm sorry if I offend you in anyway. My opinions are not facts.
I have never known a love, like the love I have for my daughters. When my daughters hurt, I feel an immense pain. From the day they were born, I vowed never to spank them. I just can't justify causing pain to someone I love so much. On the other hand, I think they (daughters) would have more respect had I smacked their butt every now and then.
When I was a child, I was spanked hard. Spanking doesn't mean a parent doesn't love their child. I have no doubt that my parents love me, as much I love them. It's just not my principles for discipline.
For you to fly 6 feet from a kick is damn wrong. If I may continue to be so blunt, I would have kicked your father in the gonads had I saw him. I'm sorry. I'll wager to say that he was hurting more than you, afterwards. As, he should.
You sound like a wonderful young lady. Both your parents and YOU should be proud.
