    These days children are getting less punishments as compared to old times. I was punished by my school teachers, tution teachers, father and mother....I received following punishments -

    Beating with scale - By school and tution teachers
    Beating with stick - By school and tution teachers, and mother
    Slap of face - mother
    beating with belt - father
    ear twisting - mother and father
    asked to do site-ups - school teachers

    Last time I was punished by parents was in class 12th...By school teachers in class 10th.. and by tution teacher in class 11th

    Please share your punishemnts experience....

    whats the point Nitya? Is it a fond remembrance of childhood if punishment can be that.
    I studied in a school where corporal punishment was not allowed.
    Being a girl my dad not supposed to hit or yell at me. The only time I got a punishment was a slap on face by my mom when I was in 7th.

    Is this a torture thread???
    Just kidding!! :)

    I remember getting beaten by my maths teacher by scale in grade 5.That was the first and my last experience, have been an angel around teachers.
    Dad last slapped me tightly when I was in the college :crazy, after an argument.
    Brother and me used to fight like dogs and cats so the weapon used was anything that around.
    Mom used only pinches hehehe.

    But now that I look back at all those punishments I find it funny.
    I have some beautiful memories of my childhood and would not like to spoil it with these occasional spanking memories :p
    And whatever has happened in my past has made me THE me that I am today so I dont regret any of it. :)

    Ergo smile and move forward!!

    phew!

    By mom:
    I was never hit by her. Pinches yes, never been hit by her.

    By Dad: I was slapped once by him when I was in 3rd grade when I happened to ask biscuits from a passer by on the road (lol, must have been such an embarrassing situation for dad).

    By teachers in school: Kneel down facing the wall was the most common punishment. was never hit by them because my mom was the principal in the school I used go to. escaped! lol

    Grand parents: Never; there was once my paternal grand dad threw a ladoo on my head in an attempt to calm me down but it didnt work. I ate the laddo and my dad told him not to hit me ever again, even with laddoo.

    By my daughter: 2 year old; She made up for everything I wanst subjected to before. Picked up this habit of hitting from out of no where. The habit lasted for a week and then repeated reiterations about no hitting made her stop.

    Being beaten by our sibling or beating the sibling is a sweet , good old memory, in itself. Even today, I enjoy when I recollect the thoughts me, being beaten up by my younger brother and vice versa. I never used real force to hit him, it was only a playful hit. But, he being very young, used to hit me with force. That did not give me any mental pain, though it was only a physical pain. All it gave me in those days...........and even today..........smile and smile only !:)

    But, when I think of the other instances of being beaten up by others like teachers and mother, they are painful nostalgic memories.

    Both the above memories are totally in contrast to each other, at least for me. I don't know how it is for others !

    Nice to see the thread ranging from painful to sweet nostalgic memories. Mom used to beat with her hand on my back/shoulder, experienced several painful pinches in thighs from her which we have named 'Nimitamblam'. Dad slapped my shoulder once or twice when I really angered him. Several WWF sibling kicks. From teachers: got beaten with wooden scale, stick.. But the nasty punishment was to hold the tongue with fingers to stop talking. [Not just me, the whole class] :bang
