which means they're incredibly hard, but I was never smacked as a child... well maybe one or two grams to get me to sleep at night. were your parents strict?

my dad never hit, but yelled sometimes if i done something really bad. but, my mom never wanted a kid and was a bit of a party girl. so, she was very strict and never stopped at yelling. she hit with whatever was handy.

i understand that. my mum was old school. no love but handy with the strap. i too am lenient with my kids. though the tone of voice seems to work if i get angry!

My foster parents were from Glasgow too. The point was reached where the hospital had to ask them not to kiss me goodnight as they were running out of sutures!

Dad was loosey-goosey and mum was as hard as concrete, but they fought all the time with each other, which sort of took the heat away from us kids. Sort of. Usually it is the other way around, I think. Myself, I do not like arguing, except when it is absolutely necessary. Guess you could say I fight very seldom but when I do it is to win.
