My mother didn't agree with spanking having been raised with it so she didn't do it and father followed her lead. Her generation got spanked by family, in school and by the neighbours in the neighbourhood. Lets say mother was rude in school. The teacher would get out a belt/ruler and she'd get hit then she'd report what she did to her mother who would give another spanking at home. If some how neighbours witnessed the rudeness as they happened to pass by the playground at that time they may take it upon themselves to give out a spanking too. So you could get 3 spankings for one action of wrong doing. Grandparents were old fashioned Caribbean people who believed in not sparing the rod. They'd spank for anything and didn't even consult with parents who didn't spank. If you're in their home there's a good chance you'd get it and we were there a lot. Of course they don't tell you the rules in advance. You find out the first time you've broken a rule.

Here's the popular spanking guide of the Caribbean.

Spank (they call it licks), when the child

is mischievous
is stubborn
won't listen
didn't follow instructions
didn't follow incorrect or conflicting instructions correctly
lies
is rude
is mean
is unkind
is crying
is around a stressed out adult
breaks or destroys things
is hitting
makes a mess
wets bed
goes where they shouldn't
takes something without asking or receiving permission
doesn't babysit younger sibling or young sibling falls over
is going to be on their own and parent shares out licks "just in case" as insurance of future mischief
is bad at school work, spelling, maths especially multiplication tables etc
behaves badly at school
is swearing
is a truant
is sneaking out at late hours without permission
is embarrassing/shaming the family
is a teen girl found by herself with a boy/man by neighbours

Some families keep on spanking right up until the child becomes an adult at 18.

Yes, up to about maybe late elementary age. Then it was just groundings.
I was pretty well behaved so I didn't get them often. But boy was I grounded a lot over dumb stuff.

Sure.

Being sent to your room or being grounded is for the weak.

Those welts were proudly worn because it meant I did something *really* bad to deserve it.

Yes. I wasn't a bad kid either. Most all of the time it was over something that my parents could've just talked to me about. And often my big brother got spanked because I did something bad. He was supposed to look out for me I guess. And having your dad as a drunk doesn't help. It's fucking dumb. Don't spank your kids. Talk to them.

I don't spank my daughter. Not that she ever needed it.

Yes, I was spanked exactly once as a child.

I was a remarkably good kid though (and my parents would agree if you asked them), but it certainly wasn't because of spanking. I honestly don't even remember what I did wrong - all I remember was the punishment - which is a horrible way to train a child, if you ask me.

I don't even think spanking is something my parents really thought was appropriate either. I wonder if they just thought "Well, we were raised like this, so I guess this is how we're supposed to do it." After that one time, they never tried it again or even threatened to try it, and I think we were both better off for it. They developed far better methods for keeping me in line anyway. Non-physical punishments that I still remember to this day and also remember what I did to deserve them.

I consider myself fortunate that I'm not from past generations. I've only broken a 1/3 of those rules. Public school no longer spank these days. Mother's idea of punishment was to give lectures which was best avoided.

Oh hardly anyone ever used grounding as punishment because daily Caribbean life can be rigid, you're already living a grounded life. For children it's usually school and church/temple/mosque/synogogue and maybe a sports/drama/music club. Most aren't allowed out past their front gate/ street. Parents' lives are similar with work though there will be exceptions for special events/parties.

Idk about Dad, but I know my mom was punished pretty badly as a child for minor misbehavior, so they were lenient and understanding with me and my brother as kids. I think I was the only one who ever got hit, and mostly under the age of six. Once we both reached an age where we could speak pretty fluently, they just grounded us.

By that, I mean they locked us in the bathroom for 15 minutes until we apologized.
That stopped by high school though. I think the need for punishments kind of ended and we just got lectured a lot.
