The topic of disciplining children and corporal punishment came up on the most recent episode of Real Time with Bill Maher, in reference to Jamie Foxx's Oscar speech (in which Foxx talked about his grandmother who "whipped him").
How were you disciplined as a child? ...by your parents? ...teachers? ...other authority figures?
What kind of effect did this have on you at the time and now?
How has it influenced your treatment of others? (Such as how you discipline your own children.)
