Need help finding a fundie punishment tool!

Recommended Posts

So I was explaining the whole RR saga to my Fiance and we somehow got on the subject of what we talk about on FJ. He was raised Fundie-lite and was telling me about this piece of 6inx2in leather that was used to punish him. He said it hurt like hell but didnt leave a mark on his skin which is why all the fundie/homeschool moms used them. They are all afraid of losing their children to CPS.

He says she bought it from the Pearls but I cant seem to find more info on it. I know it was popular because he said all the other homeschool mothers had them.

Tha'ts what I am assuming. I have never seen it though, that's why I figured I would come here FJ knows everything! haha

Ezzo and Growing Kids God's Way had something because I know of someone that had it and I believe it came as part of their church curriculum program.

It was about 4-5 inches long and made of blue rubber, shaped sort of like a ruler. It was flexible and would most certainly sting but probably leave a mark too.

I saw it years and years ago and forgot about it until you posted this. I can't find it anywhere on-line and let's just say googling "spanking device" is probably not the direction to go if one were looking for its image.

At school, people used to beat the snit out of each other with the flexirulers. I wonder which one came first? :think:

Either a belt piece or flexiruler would sting pretty badly at least but definitely will make a mark if hit hard enough.

If you have to buy something to discipline your kid with from a website that specialises in BDSM, youre doing parenting horribly wrong.

HAHA dual purposes! You really get your moneys worth! I wonder if they buy those used and save the difference?!?

Ha, seriously!

I also love how there is a market for instruments that cause pain, but won't leave a mark! If you are worried that your method of punishment will have your children removed, then it is certainly wrong!

ETA for typo.

In my fundie-medium days a friend of mine always kept a dozen or so of the rubber-like flexible rulers in a basket she carried around. She stocked up on them at "back-to-school" sales. She always steered conversations with ANYONE on to the "child training" track. After an explanation of appropriate discipline methods, she would give you a ruler. The rulers had been decorated with happy faces and hearts by her children. :(

That was the sketchy part to me! As he explained it all the families he knew used it because they didn't want their children taken away by CPS (Child protective services). They all followed To Train up a Child and all of the rest of the Micheal Pearl bullshittery.

His mother still has all the books but I havent figured out a way to ask her for them without her thinking I am pregnant lol (I am not)

Holy Child Abuse, Batman! Her KIDS decorated them? That is horrendously awful.

The decorations aren't unusual, sadly. I've known a few people who decorate their paddles with smiley faces too.

On the now defunct 7x Sunday, a woman provided a link to buy a spanking instrument but I don't remember the name of the site.

This gem of enlightened Scottish education seems longer than what your fiance is looking for, but maybe it's along the same lines?

I met an elderly man who remembers these being used on him.

I have a sibling who used to get hit at school.

My brother & sister-in-law were fundie lite back in the 90s when they first became parents, and they had a paddle with Bible verses on it. Disgusting.

Congresswoman Bachmann wants to spank the President; perhaps she could give advice?

Sounds to me like a good way to ensure that if you don't beat every spark of rebellion out of your kids, they will reject anything to do with the Bible and God.

Holy shit. Pain-causing implements with happy faces on them. Sounds like something from 1984.

Anyone remember "The Rod"? It's defunct now, but it was basically a slightly modified pig whip for showing pigs with a comfort grip handle. Because when you're beating your kids comfort is priority number 1!

Thats awful. That looks really painful for the poor kid.

      I highly recommend Not the Good Girl's Youtube channel. She is making great documentaries about cults.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.
