This child of mine was such a sweetheart, she had never had to be spanked or punished. Mary found all kinds of transgressions (all instigated by her own kid, who was a bully). One of my daughter’s punishment would be NO LUNCH!!! (I was providing her lunch every day in a lunch box because I knew Mary was on a limited budget.) Can you imagine making a child 3 or 4 years old go all day with nothing to eat.
