Most people can agree that old-school punishments that we used to receive as kids, don’t exist anymore. It’s so strange to think about some of the things we had to endure then that would definitely turn into viral videos now!
For the first half of today’s show, LauRen was a nervous wreck because with her husband out of town, and her nanny not in until 8am…she had to leave her son, Cashton, alone with his Opa (grandfather) for the first time this morning! LauRen assures us that her mom’s boyfriend is a great Opa to Cashton, but as a mom…it’s always nerve-racking to leave your kid alone with some for the first time.
When Maney heard of this, he recalled on what would happen when he was left with his grandparents which got us on the subject of strange old-school punishments. When Maney told us about a bed that would shock you if you wet the bet, we were appalled.
This conversation definitely gives off Matilda vibes, ya think?
My parents would put me on the front porch until I could straighten up. Even once when I just had shorts and a T-shirt on with 4 inches of snow and counting.— Andrew Campbell (@APCampbell14) March 12, 2018
When I was about 5 my mom used to threaten us with Sergeant Julu who did a kids boot camp on some talk show in the 90s. She would tell us if we didn't listen she'd call him and tell him to come ????????????— RayRay (@Raylisha_lynn_) March 12, 2018
@themrlshow my grandma made us go pick our own hickory switch, we thought we'd be smart and pick a small one then grandma would go pick out more and braid those things together and tear our legs up. Lol— Becky Rosenbalm (@haileysrose) March 12, 2018
Growing up Hispanic, our punishment would be anything they could use against us. Whatever was closer, they grabbed and used????— Kelvin Lebron (@Kelvin_Lebron98) March 12, 2018
