When you answer rhetoric questions

Some parents are harsh. My mother is one of those. All her friends are too. You will not answer her rhetoric questions and get away with it. I remember when I was way younger, I once answered her "What is wrong with you?" with "manners". The beating I got from her still comes to haunt me once in a while. Even then, I think they shoudn't be questions if they should not be answered.

I am totally against beating or any other kind of physical abuse especially where children are concerned. I never felt the need to use a rod to any of my 3 children although they drove me up the wall a dozen times a day , when I found it difficult beyond my limits I would burst into tears. My children , now adults , tease me saying that was emotional blackmail
