There are days when coming home after work, bending my wife over the kitchen table after she's pulled down her pants and panties, taking off my belt and giving her a lesson is just what needs to be done. She tends to get a false sense security that whatever she does or doesn't do is okay.
We have a room in our house that needs attention and once I've mentioned what needs to be done she's intelligent enough to pick up on the hint that she needs to do something about it, and soon. So today, for example, if I haven't seen anything done with that room by the time I get home then sitting down for dinner is going to be a bit uncomfortable for her this evening.
It simply is what must be done. I see vast improvements around the house because spanking were given and she knows what will happen if those areas get out of control again. So those areas are doing very well.
