My opinion is that Jw's are into corporal punishment more than the general population. Maybe it's my imagination, maybe not.
Do you remember being told "not to spare the rod" in disciplining children? Do you remember being that kid that got beat?
I remember having to go to the bathroom during the meetings and being told if I didn't really have to pee, I would get a spanking... that my mom wasn't going to get up for nothing. Sure enough, we'd get up and I'd get so nervous about getting a spanking, I'd freeze up, couldn't pee and then I would get wailed on. I remember not being the only kid always getting spanked or hit in the KH bathroom or being drug outside "so as not to disturb the meetings" It was always so weird how they expected small children to sit for 2 hours of boring talks. Seriously, I can't sit through 2 hours now as an adult!
