I wasn't a spoiled brat, either! Although my brother said I was, I knew better, as well! The week I married at nearly 21 years of age, my dad spanked me for sassing my mom. I, too, am thankful for the sternness of my dad whose love I never questioned. I wasn't sure how you were going to relate all this to "personal peace" but you finally tied it together although perhaps almost too late and perhaps a stretch from the flow of the piece. Nice job! Thanks for sharing! :)

Nice article with good examples. I can relate to the perceived 'sternness' of my Dad - but I am thankful that he was. :)
