Amen on the grounding.
I was spanked, smacked across the mouth, and I turned out better for it. I was never really mouthy until I was eight (and believe me, I was god awful. XD) but I quickly stopped.
Word of note: My dad never disciplined me except for maybe two or three occasions; usually it was my mother who did it. For some reason, quite a few people think that if a girl is hit by her father as a child (even if she was being a horrible brat) she'll begin to associate "abuse" with love.
To be honest? I sure as hell don't.
High dive into frozen waves where the past comes back to life. Fight fear for the selfish pain;
It was worth it every time. Hold still right before we crash 'cause we both know how this ends.
A clock ticks 'til it breaks your glass and I drown in you again,
'Cause you are the piece of me I wish I didn't need. Chasing relentlessly, still fight and I don't know why!
If our love is tragedy, why are you my remedy? If our love's insanity, why are you my clarity?
