YES!!! My dad NEVER layed a hand on me, he never had to. It was the looks & lectures & the on & on & on............. I used to WANT hin to spank me so he would shut up!! My mom wasn't a spanker, she was a thrower & a slapper. She had great aim & could hit us from down the block & around the corner.
