My parents were strict with me. My dad would take my brothers out behind the garage and beat their A$$ (as in punch their lights out). My dad is old school and you didn't mess around if he told you to do or not do something. All mom had to do was say "Wait til your father gets home." and they straightened up.
My mom tried threatening me with that but I knew my dad wouldn't let her do that to his baby girl
He may have been able to get away with that kind of violent behaviour back then but this is now.

We found that out 5 years ago.......the hard way.
Ya, He is pretty good, considering I haven't been able to touch him since he was 10 years old............and I couldn't now even if I wanted to.
