Well, I have a dad, a step-dad, and a mom that take out my punishments. I have to say my mom all around. But my step-dad scares the shit out of me, and I hate to disappoint my dad.

Mother had the rules, father was usually the one to punish me for breaking them even if he didn't really care.

The words "wait till your father gets home" still scares the mess out of me.

My mom did yell at me, but my dad was the one who held the impact.

my mom didn't work at that time and so she had more time to "train" my sister and I

It was pretty equal between the two of them, actually. But since mommy has the stronger personality, I basically live in a matriarchy.

mom was send my dad to spank me. dad would say, when I clap my hands, you yell wow at the top of your lungs. :)

My dad is a football coach. He is going deaf from whistle blowing, so he talks really loud already. When he gets mad it scary!

My mom has always been the one who has the last say, my dad is kind of in the background.

06/05/12 5:30 pm

I was only spanked when I was very young, never beaten.

My parents divorced early on and we lived chiefly with my mom. My dad was so busy trying to be our friend that he let A LOT of things slide. My mom was stricter and held us to a higher standard, but she was still pretty cool.

06/05/12 5:17 pm

Definitely dad. Mom & I were two peas in a pod. He had to keep an eye on both of us. lol

Mom made rules and dad enforced for the most part

06/05/12 4:43 pm

dad was the comedian and mom was the judge, jury, and executioner.

06/05/12 3:41 pm

Well my mom was the only one around so it was obviously her...although my dad punished me much more for choosing to live ten miles away and wanting nothing to do with me. Thanks father.

06/05/12 3:40 pm

My dad leads by example and if you get him mad you really screwed up. My mom flips on the tiniest things so I guess it would be her

my mom hit me with whatever she had... a belt a spoon her hand anything. she would also throw stuff... it just got to the point that she didn't make me cry and I wasn't afraid of her. my dad I was afraid off cause he would beat me with a swittvh. but he was very reasonable and did it occasionally

06/05/12 1:01 pm

My mom was definitely the disciplinarian; dad was too nice and couldn't control us kids. He always kept to himself and rarely ever spoke... Always reading the paper haha

06/05/12 12:49 pm

say your acting up in public, dad would make you stew and dread your beatin all day cause you WOULD get it when u get home! mom, she'd take you in the bathroom in public and tear your butt up right then and there.

Dad, but not so much as a consistent disciplinarian as a inconsistent bully. On the very few occasions where my Mom got after me it was well deserved and probably overdue.

06/05/12 12:43 pm

I'd get it from both! mom had an instant reaction to anything. dad was more premeditated. mom used a switch, flyswatter or whatever was close. dad used the belt!

The male female split makes total sense. My dad beat my ass and my mom beat my sisters ass. They never switched off. My mom couldn't hit hard enough to make me cry. My mom also never let my dad beat my sisters ass.

My Mom was an abusive b*tch right to me, I tell you. I'd get beatings just for breathing heavily. My Dad on the other hand, loves his baby girl and wouldn't let anyone, not even my Mom lay a finger on me if he could help it. He always talked to me like an adult when I did wrong, instead of beat me.

06/05/12 11:28 am

Def my mom. I received quite a few chancletazos from her lol

My dad checked out when I was 6 so that left it all to my mom. She wasn't didn't have the heart for much serious discipline. Just the lame stuff like stand in a corner or stay in room.

06/05/12 11:09 am

Mom was more frequent as she was a sahm, but when dad got involved, you knew you were in big trouble! Haha

06/05/12 10:46 am

Mom, but when dad got mad enought to it was bad

06/05/12 10:02 am

I've always done whatever I want so it was a hard one.

06/05/12 10:01 am

Mom. Scary as hell still is. Its part of her charm

06/05/12 9:56 am

Neither. I was raised by grandparents who both spoiled me. I decided to answer this question in how I believe it would work with me and my fiancé if we have kids. I put myself(mom) because I just can't see him being one to lay down the law. Then again, he may surprise me lol.

Both my parents were great with discipline. No physical punishment. Gave Mom as answer because she was a stay at home mom while dad worked.
