Hitting your kids
Interestingly enough I was thinking about posting this issue last night, before reading that Gentle Parents thread...
so let's have at it.
Who got hit growing up and how?
People who were hit by their parents: were you also hit by other children? Did you make a distinction between the two forms of force?
"Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."
