hi sambo --- ive got three really good "kids" -- all boys 23 - 20
-16 --- they have never been spanked except for a good hand swat to the
ass when they were still in diapers and going to do something that would
get them hurt much worse than the swat would -- like playing in an big
south georgia or florida anthill - touching a hot wood stove or picking
up a coral snake -- the technique has paid off tremendously ------ but i
dont know anything about raising girls -- billp
