well, put bluntly: your parents were abusive fools.

there were exactly two rules in my parents' house which entailed beltwhipping for violations:
1. You will not lie
2. You will not steal

all punishments were served COLD. No anger involved (though the appearance of anger was sometimes needed).

I and my siblings turned out quite well, thank you.

All my kids were in one room one day and were just acting all around bad. Trying to appear real angry, I told my wife that she would need to buy a new wooden spoon when I was done. (this was before we bought "THE ROD")

I stomped into the room and meant to smack the spoon hard on the dresser with a resounding THWACK! Instead, I hit it on the edge of the dresser and it broke with a little sissy "Twink."

I broke up laughing and left the room. Score 1 for the kids. My wife was even mad at me for breaking her spoon.
