My step father  was a strict disciplinarian and believed in spanking as the only method. He did not believe in grounding, because this took policing on his part and he had his employment. He especially believed in embarrassment as a major part of the punishment and was more than willing to spank my bare behind in public or in front of my friends. He  did not  waist his time giving me a couple of smacks, each spanking was long and hard, often with a paddle, switch or belt sometimes all three.
 
Until I was 16 my mother disciplined me. and she also believed in spanking, her method was the belt, her shoe, or the nearest extension cord. When  I turned 19 my  step father took over and the punishment got much more severe. He chose to spank me when he thought I needed it until I was 24 years old, and moved away from home.
 
After I turned 19  the public spankings stopped and I received my punishment in the isolated seclusion of the pine forest behind the farm when mother was away at work, she had three jobs allowing my step_father plenty of time and opportunity to discipline me.
 
When I was 19 I got into trouble for shoplifting some hair coloring and Christmas gifts for my friends. at a local drug store, and the manager called my father instead of the police. My dad came to the store and talked to the manager. They decided that something needed to be done about the all of the shoplifting and that I was going to be an example to the other shoplifters. I had to make restitution . I could nolonger return the  stolen merchandise. When the manager was finished lecturing me, and pressuring me to name the other shoplifters,  My dad took me to the area by the cashiers and blistered my bare behind in front of all the customers with one of those  paddles that has a rubber band and ball on it. I then had to stand by the front door with my nose in a corner and my bare red ass showing while a sign reading "shoplifter" was put on my back. For the next two weeks my father took me to this store after school every day and on weekends and repeated the performance, which by this time had drawn quite an audience of parents and children. I later found out that the manager had posted a sign saying that a shoplifter was going to be punished in the lobby at 3:30 each day, and inviting everyone to come and see what happened to thieves in his store, and this accounted for a lot of the crowd.
 
Shoplifting by locals in that store dropped to almost nothing that summer.
 
At the end of this two weeks dad had me go into the yard and cut six long stiff switches from our apple tree. I then had to bend over a chair with my pants off and he caned me with these switches until they each broke. I had never been so sternly punished  like this before and I had huge red welts all over my bottom and the tops of my legs that did not go away for almost two weeks. I had trouble sitting for over a week and could barely walk the day after the spanking. This wasn't a problem because I spent the next three days at home without my pants or underpants on so that mom and dad and my  younger sister  could admire his handy work. He wanted to make sure that I understood his opinion of stealing, and he made his point. I never took anything that did not belong to me again. I would pass the lesson and punishment on to another theif.
 
During my second marriage I repeated the example with my spouse who was caught breaking and entering a neighboring house. Burglary was unacceptable behavior , it would not be tolerated in my home by my marriage partner.
