Like many parents, I sometimes spank my child when he's been bad. But one time I had him over my knee and he was fidgeting around quite a bit, so when I went to spank his behind I actually smacked him right on his scrotum! He howled in pain and I was certainly shocked, but he thought I did it on purpose and swore he'd never break his sister's toys again. He's been really well behaved since and I'm sure it's because he thinks I'll spank him there again. So, seeing how effective it could be, is this a normal way for mothers to punish their sons?
