Spare the Rod (Momisms)


“Spare the Rod, Spoil the Child”





That’s what my Mom used to say.

Of course, things were different in those days.


We kids learned not to tattle,

Or else, mom might get out the paddle.


We really learned to dread,

When, “Wait ‘til your dad gets home!” was said.


Discipline was really dealt,

When our Dad had to lay on that belt.


At our chores we toiled,

And  most definitely, we weren’t spoiled!


You might think it was perverse,

But the olden days were even worse
