Well, I think I learned to keep my mouth shut and take my medicine better than my wife. She has this really defiant streak in her sometimes. Kind of like damn-the-torpedoes, full steam ahead.DesertRose wrote: ↑Mon Feb 08, 2021 1:32 pmI wonder which of you gets punished more?Rand E wrote: ↑Fri Feb 05, 2021 12:46 amMy wife and I don't have any rules about smart-mouth unless it involves disrespect in front of friends. family. or in public. We can cuss each other out in private, and that's okay, just not in public or in front of others. I know this sounds terribly permissive, but, that's just how we roll. However, we do have a standing rule that smart-mouth is not appropriate during a disciplinary session. Mouthing off when receiving discipline just gets you more .... well ... discipline. And, yes, it works like charm. Good policy.
Spanking and Domestic Discipline
For what it’s worth, we used a different style of punishment. I had my wife doing push-ups until muscle failure then hold half up position and we would begin a discussion about her attitude. When she hit the floor the discussion ended until she repositioned and then we continued. At the end of the discussion I spanked her until I was sure the message was firmly implanted. This made her aware of how serious this act was and also made her an active part of the process. This only needed to happen a few times early on.
