    My husband grew up with corporal punishment in school too. Age seven was not a good year for him. Not that I agree with helicopter parenting (parents always hovering over children) but I understand why many became such. Because I ask–where the heck were the parents??? I’m glad you revisited the resistance you felt earlier to writing to this memoir prompt and shared this frightening time. I find that it’s often difficult to reconcile the things I feared as a child with understanding as an adult. Memoir can help draw out tough memories. Hugs to you!

      Thanks Charli, sorry to hear your husband had such a hard time during the age of seven as well. Yes, writing memoir and poetry is very healing for me.

      Peace to you.
