Saturday, February 11, 2006
I used to be a very naughty child.
My homework was inevitably neglected. At the last moment I would
realise that it was not done, so I would look to Pooja (sister)
for help. She has bailed me out of such predicaments many a time.
Being the youngest one, I was very pampered. Yet I was ready to
break the rules. Often, I was at the receiving end of spankings
from my parents. Pooja often made sure that she took half the
blame and saved my skin. Then there were parties and outings
which I didnt want to miss. But my parents wouldnt
allow me if exams were drawing near. It was Pooja then whod
do the talking and convince them otherwise.

teacher. He said: 'If anyone's going to punish her, I will,
because I know how hard to hit her.' " Gales of laughter.

ruler or the slipper."

With my parents wrapped up in their
own worlds, I turned elsewhere for the care and love and warmth
that I yearned for. The woman who provided them was my nanny,
For more than 30 years, continuing
into my adult life, Nanny was the mainstay of my existence. She
joined our family when my brother Daniel was three weeks old, and
stayed with us for the rest of her days. Her constancy and
devotion held me together until her death.
Nanny was everything to me - my
world at our home in Mayfair centred entirely on the day and
night nurseries, where she ruled her tiny kingdom.
She did absolutely everything for
my brother and me, washing and ironing our clothes with
unimaginable delicacy, serving meticulously prepared meals of
fish poached in milk, and decorating my hair with exquisite
She had an ample bosom into which
we could snuggle on the nights when we had earache (a malady from
which I suffered frequently as a child) and she was
overwhelmingly reassuring. You knew she would always be there.
She was also a strict
disciplinarian, and our manners had to be perfect. I had the most
terrible temper as a child - once, in a shoe shop in Sloane
Square, I kicked a shoe right up to the top of a cupboard - and
was regularly given a spanking with a hairbrush.

I was raised in a strict way but I
wanted to push the parameters. Mum would say be home by 8.15, but
I remember one time I was late, and she was waiting to go to
work. She met me in the street and sent me home, with the fear of
Dad. Yes, I got smacked. I never did that again. But what
superseded any rebelliousness was respect. If I brought the cops
to the door unthinkable! Not just the shame on my family,
but on the entire black population of Wolverhampton, and beyond.

of kids you want," explains Sonja. "We didn't believe
in sparing the rod. If they did something wrong, they got

being spanked by her mother when she misbehaved. She said:
"I have a mother who, pardon the expression, kicks my ass if
I get out of line. On the other hand, she has always made me feel
the sky is the limit. No matter how miserably I failed, she was
always there for me. I might fail in a movie, but when it comes
to being a real person, I get my sense of respect and dignity
from my mother. When I was growing up she never hesitated to
spank me if I deserved it, and I feel completely blessed to have
been brought up that way. She's my support system and my voice of

she would "show off" to her friends at school.
Premiere magazine (USA) October 2005
Women in Hollywood: Charlize Theron
interview page 81 Paragraphs 4, 5 & 6
"There was a certain amount of
discipline that came with the way I was raised. You didn`t break
things that were not yours; you didn`t wreck a room. My mom and I watch this Nanny 911 show together
and I said to her "I'm so calling the authorities on you for
how you raised me." Then I think about it and I've got to
say there was a boundary that always made me feel safe. I really
always knew that from a very very early age - that's wrong and
don't you ever do that again. And God I was spanked. I was more
than spanked - I was whipped. Definitely (with) whatever was
around" "I went to school one time with Donald Duck and
Mickey Mouse engraved welts on my thighs from a hanger that my
mom grabbed that had all these little Disney cartoon characters
cut out in it. It boiled down to respect - my mom was taking care
of everything and running a business at the same time and there
were never any nannies or anything like that. She was doing
laundry and cooking three meals a day and - I remember it so
vividly, I came home from school and she said, "Change your
uniform before you have lunch." and I was like "Oh I'll
just take a quick bite of this tomato soup" And I drizzled
it all over. She was busy ironing and she had all the hangers
stacked up. It was so quick - a couple of swipes on the thighs. I
remember going to school showing off my war wounds to my
friends." "I think that that's different than beating a
child, which shouldn't happen or spanking a child unnecessarily.
But let me tell you at that age I knew I was wrong - because I
was for sure not washing my own clothes; my mom was doing that.
Then look at the relationship I have with her today. That's a
testament for my whole argument right there."

group is from 18 to 34 years old, and I'll tell you what, when I
was young I knew darn well that if I heard "ass" on
television that I was not supposed to say that, and if I did I
would get spanked on my bottom or I would get grounded. Now we
live in a day where if you spank your kid on the butt you're
going to get sued."

discipline, was asked about discipline at home during her own
upbringing, and said: "My mother always said she would wait
until she calmed down to punish us because she always said don't
make the punishment hard on yourself, too. Don't ground your kid
for a month because that means you have to stay home for a month
with them. And, you know, as they're littler, it might translate
differently. But she would just take that time to count to 10
before the punishment so that it was appropriate and that it was,
"The thing about spanking for us, again, she didn't do it in
the moment. She would say go to your room, you're going to get a
spanking. And that 15 minutes of waiting for the spanking, that's
when you really thought -- it was totally humiliating. It wasn't
so much -- she didn't beat us. But it was like that humiliation
and the waiting for the punishment. And I think that was the time
that you kind of actually really thought about what you did

Mail on Sunday Night & Day
magazine, April 17 2005
Faith was born to single mother
Helene Evans in Florida, but raised by her grandparent Bob &
May in Newark, New Jersey. Her mother attempted a singing career,
but never really made it. She dipped in and out of her daughter`s
life. Faith never knew her father.
She remembers a loving, strict
though somewhat dysfunctional childhood. Her grandparents, both
devout Baptists, were also foster parents, and at any one time
there were 14 people living under a roof more suited to four.
`There were only three bedrooms so
my grandfather divided the basement into three seperate little
bedrooms and made the back porch into a bedroom,` she says. `They
were very strict. We had to go to prayer service and bible study
and Sunday school as well as church services. We had to eat
together every day and pray in our kitchen on a Sunday morning
`There were some church doctrines
that I disagreed with. For example, girls weren`t allowed to wear
trousers. But I never saw how that could make you have a bad
heart. Also, if the radio was on, my grandparents would say it
was "devil music". We`d get smacked for talking back.
My grandfather would be the one to take off that alligator belt
and beat your behind. Yeah, there was a lot of discipline and
lots of things I wouldn`t do to my own children.
`I use discipline sparingly. I
don`t beat my children. They`ve had a couple of spankings, but I
don`t tell them to pick a branch off a tree to spank them with.
`So they were strict, but with 13
foster kids there was no way of controlling everything that went
on in the house.`
