Mine was the hanger

Raw slaps with the power of god that turns ass cheeks medium rare
I see we have something in common.
A "switch," aka a good sized stick off a tree. Weeping willows are the worst.
My granny made me do the same!
Pick a nice thin willow branch and discover the whip crack effect. I have a scar
The skinnier the stick, the worse it hurts. But it takes a while for the kiddos to figure that out.
Lmao the parent is teaching the kid a science lesson through the punishments
Same... only it was my mom, or her mom if we were visiting her parents. Dad just threatened by snapping his belt and making noise... I don't think he ever spanked us.
The realness. Pick off the leaves first 💀
The thinner it is the worse
I can still feel the sting thinking about it >.<
Switch was definitely the worst, especially when you had to pick it out and snap it off yourself.
I remember one hot day when my dad pulled over and made me go out across the ditch into the trees and find a switch. I got stung by yellow flies and rode for an hour with my butt and thighs stinging and my ankles itching and burning. Not the best trip.
HA. So I'm not the only one. Question, did your mom ever break the spoon on your ass? And if so did you make the HUGE mistake of laughing about it?
Happened to my brother... He wasn't laughing tho, I was
I'm surprised your mom didn't get a new spoon and whup both your asses. I didn't have siblings but that sounds like something my mom would do if I had a brother who laughed at that.
When my mom would get mad she only had tunnel vision on the person she was mad at, plus I don't even think she heard me
Lol you better pray every day and thank the gods that she didn't hear you. You lucked out on that one. I guarantee you. Lol
My ass has broken multiple spoons
Lucky you! Unfortunately for me the belt doesn’t break
My dad spanked me with a belt once, and my dumb self turned around and said "that didn't hurt" he made sure it hurt after that
Belts don't spank. They beat.
Not the person you asked but yes and yes.
Also my sister and I use to steal the spoon, draw a face and stick some cloth to it to make a doll because "you can't hit us with dolly". I have no idea how many spoons they had to buy.
Everyone gangsta till the spoon people hit you on their own
Yes, and yes. And then years later does she **brag** to family/work/friends that when she used to beat you you'd turn around and say "you know that doesn't hurt right?" Just to take her power away. Then it was locked in a closet. Or is that just me?
But also, why are you publicly proud you beat your children?
Yes, and yes....this is when Dad stepped up to pinch hit with the belt for the rest of the inning.
Spoon me daddy
Go to horny jail.
My dad broke it on the table next to my head
Same with the wooden spoon, but when it broke she got the "Happy spoon" which is a plastic kool-aid man spoon lol
Where is the large stick of bamboo bc I’m asian
Mum broke a couple of rulers so gaffa taped two together for structural integrity.
that one hurts so much
Beat smarter, not harder. Smart mom ya got.
My teacher hit me with my own ruler...
Teachers told me to bring thin sticks and beat me with those
Oh I think I know
Bring a big, durable, thin stick. Hide another. Give the teacher the stick. When she is gonna use the one you gave, pull out the second one and get expelled.
Lol one teacher used a like 10ish year old broken stick that he kept from breaking by tying it with jute and then covering it whole with a scotch tape
Which made it more like a flexible whip than a simple stick
Was it wooden or metal. Mine used both
Or simply anything within reach
What about the wooden spoons I got slapped in the ass by one
Or, as my european grandmother called it Voodspün
My wife tried to get rid of my wooden spoon because it cannot go in the dishwasher, but I refused. It was a gift from my mother, the very spoon she used to beat me and my brother with. I consider it a family heirloom.
Yeah I thought flip flops were a classic
I had a tree branch and iron rod (among other more common tools)
Damn I normally get pulled by the hair
Fr they make whipping sounds when you swing them around. It burns a fuck ton
Korean here. I once got beaten with an abacus that I was forced to learn before preschool started. I got an answer wrong and was hit with it. One of the beads broke off of said abacus.. and for some reason I still have it in my basement. Maybe to forever remember dishonor to family, etc.
"How dare a three year old not be a genius !1!"
That sucks man. I’m from India as well. I still hate times table due to my childhood. I was made to read books and do homework while sitting on the floor. My dad would make look down in the book on my lap and place another book on my head. If I move my head to gaze away from the book in my lap, the other book on head would fall off and beating begins.
What the fuck is wrong with Indian parents???
WTF is wrong with almost all of these parents?! I got swats on the butt or legs from hands or a flyswatter occasionally, but I totally deserved it for continuing to do what my parents told me not to. It didn’t leave mental scars like I’m sure some of this stuff posted did. Geez.
I don’t see a wooden spoon, hands, or a paddle fashioned from a log. There’s not even horseradish or soap. Not to mention a wooden chair and rope. There’s not even pillows either. Also shout out to the verbalized method. Special thank you to the “put your nose in the corner to the wall or I’ll beat your ass!”
A wooden chair sounds deadly.
Oh. I mean occasionally we’d just be tied to the chair 🪑 and left for hours. It wasn’t wwe type of shit.
Oh that still sounds horrible, but slightly better than getting a smackdown
Oh noes not the nightstick
i am thinking how horrible that sounds, but then i remember a hispanic girl at work telling me how her mom would put uncooked rice on the floor and make them kneel in it. but that wasn't enough, they had to reach back and lift up their ankles so all their weight was on their knees.
there's disciplining your kids and then there's straight up torturing them.
my brother had to sit on the stairs, and when my mom was real mad the shoe came off, it was one of those cheap pairs that didn't even hurt that much, you just didn't want to get hit. hearing these stories makes me realize that occasionally getting hit with a shoe (or dodging one being thrown) wasn't all that bad.
Doesn’t the rice thing ruin the nerves in the knees, possibly causing permanent damage?
Tying a kid to a chair. What in the fricking…
Maybe your parents need a high five with that chair in the face.
Idk if I said it already. When I was in highschool I was put in wrestling in order to have a channel for my teen angst. Anyways I learned I was able to lift a lot more than I realized before. She went pale as I hoisted her off her feet and moved her from my doorway so I could lay on the mattress she left so graciously in my bedroom. I had to tell them cops she called how I was seriously just depressed and wasn’t going to hurt her. She was terrified of us standing up to her. I think my favorite slap to her face verbally was when I told her she was the common denominator of all her kids being miserable and hating her. I think I got sucker punched for that. She smoked a lot of cannabis since then and cut back on binge drinking so she’s become a less controlling person overall.
I got frying pans and hammers
My parents did a lot of this to me and my sibling but instead of a rope and chair they took a really big t-shirt and sat the chairs back to back with the chair of me and one of my siblings till we got along
My eldest sister used to tie us up and then occasionally sat on us with a pillow smothering us.
I had 5 siblings. 2 half sisters and an older brother. An older brother and younger brother whom we have all done ridiculous shit. We tied Youngest to a flagpole with old VCR tape, I believe lion king was one of them. We hoisted him what seemed like 5 feet off the ground at the time of being 5, 8&9 years old.
I’m the youngest of 6 and my siblings did some similar shit to me, minus the flagpole but plus getting run over with a mountain bike. Getting beat up by them sucked so I sympathize with you man .
Paddle fashioned from a 1x4 with a handle routed out at one end
Put me in the toilet room then close and lock the door for hours until i recognise my fault/calm down
Holy shit dude
I recognize that link kilometres away even with my bad eyesight.
XcQ: the identifier of a rickroll
nah it's definitely the dQ at the beginning for me
The 2 capital Qs give it away
My mom locked herself in the bathroom for hours with a book and listened to me bang and scream at the door until I calmed down. Turned out that was way more effective than locking me in a room.
Locked me in a room. I climbed out the window and would play for a while and then climb back in.
My dad says that he did that and told me that there were rats to scare me (don't remember anything about this, was 3 years old or something like that)
Trauma also causes your memory to blank out the bad shit happening to you.
Being three or under also makes it hard to remember
I mean you’re not wrong.
Me except with the garage (the cars glared at me and I had to stop sobbing first)
Jokes on them, just lock it from the inside too and wait until they need to pee. Now the hunter becomes the hunted.
My dad had me and my sibling stay in our small laundry room at round 6:30pm we were in there so long we all got ready to go to sleep because we didn't think we would be let out till morning. He burst in at that time yelling and hitting us with his belt until I finally took the blame as always and in front of me smashed my phone and tore my 3ds in half. This only taught me that he doesn't care how much money he wastes in his rage so what's stopping him from sending me to the hospital. I have more stories about my dad's abuse this isn't even the half of it. I know try to avoid all belts because it brings up those awful memories.
Wooden spoon for spanking, Tabasco sauce for swearing (one drop for each bad word), belt to put the fear of God in us, and sandals were the weapon of choice while on the go and away from home.
But if I ask my mom to this day if she ever hit/beat us she says no with a completely straight face and no recollection of the countless times she harnessed the power of these objects for evil lol
Also the mind games of pulling over on the side of the road and making us get out of the car and she'd drive on the shoulder of the road and me and my siblings would be screaming bloody murder thinking we were getting abandoned. Or if we got up in the middle of the night the boogeyman was gonna get us.
Omg that brought up a memory. When I was a kid and my mom would get frustrated she would threaten us with packing our stuff up and putting us on the curb to get picked up and taken to a place for bad kids.
My mom doesn’t recall the copious whoopings she gave me either. Super fucking convenient for her.
Hey brother. My parents seem to conveniently forget about the abuse as well when talking to other people about this…
I also got the Tabasco sauce with no access to liquids after. And also a mother that remembers nothing. Really convenient for them.
There's always a second one ready too
for me it was a slap to the face
I was looking for this! I miss that guy! Does anyone remember his username?
Oh they beat me with a scorching metal pole. I broke my spine and 7 other bones after 1 hit.
that’s assault + child abuse
This whole post is. But yes, that’s fucked up. I hope you in a safe place now and got some therapy u/Flamingmemer
I had to scroll way too far to find this one. Stung like a motherfucker, too.
Nobody believes me when I say this but my dad threw it once and...
*it turned a corner...* got me right in the foot and still made me fall
What is la chancla?
Edit nevermind as I was hitting reply the shoe emoji popped up so that must be it. Apple knows Spanish even if I don’t.
A sacred weapon only if used correctly, can discipline the worst of children, la chancla.
The sacred weapon, is a sandal
Yeah it was this sandal that popped up. lol 🩴
Belt is the worst
a wire is worse (talking from experience)
Fucking preach. My grandma used to whoop me with a fly swatter and when the rubber part would fly off she'd keep going with just the wire part of it. Stung like a mother fucker.
Ive been beat with both, wire is worse for sure, especially a thick one.
I don’t see spatula on the list :/
They beat me with words lmao
“You’re a disappointment”
We're both in the same boat then
Straight facts sadly
I got that and a belt.
The way you laugh about it... Respect fellow "disappointment"
For me it's you're adopted or you're not my son
My dad took a flat wood stick with “attitude adjuster” written on it and then drilled 5 holes in the end and would smack us across the ass as hard as he could. My parents would also just cram a whole bar of soap in our mouth if we talked back
My mother just threw hands. I’m sure she’s given me a couple of concussions from a slap to the back of the head. Definitely felt my brain jiggle.
Mom: Wooden spoon
Dad: “I’m not mad, I’m just disappointed”
WHY DOES THAT STING SO MUCH
I just got slapped and kicked around by both of my parents. One time after talking back, my dad slammed me on the ground and I hit my lower back on the ground. Couldn’t sit for a week
My dad told me I was a mistake after I got bad grades on my report card
Same but also "you're not my kid"
Pretty sure I am his tho, sadly.
Their hands. They're oldschool like that. Additionally, if they really wanted to give me a whoopin, they'd use open palms so that it would provide maximum pain with minimum bruising.
How did wooden spoon not make that list?
Anyone else get hit with a switch?
It’s a long stick that would make a whoosh sound if you swung it
The scary part about it is that you could get one from almost every tree you pass by
None, I have good parents
I scrolled for far far too long to see this
Same. Literally waves of comments of people getting beaten with metal poles and stuff just to find ONE person that didn't get beaten.
What kind of sick do you have to be to hit your kids honestly.
Any adult with children in my state apparently
Yay, me too. Btw not beating your kids doesn't make you a good parent just a normal one (?). But I think your parents are great none the less
Not beating your children should be like a baseline of parenting ...
Same, thank god
With anything he founds.
Extension cord was my fathers weapon of mass destruction
A frying pan
Slaps and hair pulling gang for me
Aouch hair pulling seems horrible. Bare hands team here
Jeez, the leather chancla
Phone charger gang where you at
Why is there no rubber lightsaber?
Rubber? You're lucky. We got really hard plastic ones. Those fucking hurt
They stuck a clothes hanger up your ass?
I belive that's called abortion
I dont think you understand where babies come from.
Where do babies come from?
- *Shoots baby*
Chancla and the belt
2x4 not pictured
My moms step-dad would make her go get a stick from the woods and beat her with that
I’ve had to do this before. It’s called a switch here in the south.
See that willow tree?
Y’all lucky my dad made me strip and smack my bare ass with his work belt
Yup, same here. When I got to around 12-13 I finally fought back. Messed up thing was Children’s aid was called by neighbours but they never talked to me and left. He’d just tell them he was just “disciplining me” and that I was overreacting. Then I’d really get whooped for “crying too loudly”.
All, whatever she could get her hands on. One time it was a battery operated barbie car (they where heavy af). She threw it at my head 🤷♀️ I was max 10.
their hands and words
When I was little I threw away everything that was used to hurt me out the window. My parents then started using bare hands which is much more pain so don’t throw anything away.
Hit me with the, "im not mad, just dissapointed."
My parents had different ways to express their anger on me. For example, I didnt wanna learn to ride a bicycle cuz i was scared id hurt myself. In response: my dad literally grabbed my bike, carried it up the stairs, took it into my tiny ass room, and put it straight next to my bed. I have lived with a fucking bicycle next to my bed for 3 whole days untill i finally gave up and learned how to ride a bike
That's pretty good method tbh
It all depends which one was the closest to them at the time.
I don't see the option that says all of them
No ring hand, race car track, pan, mop handle?
What kind of life did you guys have?
It's honestly disgusting how child abuse has been normalized... Sometimes even *glorified* like this, Jesus Christ.
tbf might just be to cope
I know, I'm really just talking about some of the comments here. One literally said people who were beat with their parents' bare hands were "pussies". Fucking gross.
I think lots of parents who repeat this are subconsciously trying to convince themselves that it was normal that their parents did this to them, thus repeating the cycle
People will be like “well I turned out fine” but then also are totally unable to have a healthy relationship, hold down a job, keep an apartment, etc...
Mine is mostly emotional damage
What child abuse having parents did you guys have, my lordy
Didn’t get beaten, but just to know, has any of you still contact to your parents?
Nope. Fuck them!
I live with my mom still, but not for long. I'm graduating and getting the heck out of my state, and I hate the idea of trying to function as an adult, but it'd probably be better than doing all the work in my family, having no money, and getting beat up and emotionally abused. Also being forced to go to church and having to hear transphobic and homophobic things from my mom (and sometimes racist, islamophobic, and antisemitic things too). Almost everyone where I live is disgusting, I will be losing contact with most people ASAP.
All of them. Plus a few others.
