Although experiences may differ, I discovered during my tenure at a university that, although coeds getting spanked by a parent - usually by their moms - is more common than might be supposed by those outside the academic community, these events are seldom prompted by a single grade. More common causes involve ancillary behaviors likely to adversely affect the young woman's academic performance. The likelihood of these episodes increases if the coed is freshman still living at home. Moms are not nearly as inclined to separate being 19 and going to college from being 17 and being in high school as are their daughters! Likewise, at the high school level, spankings of young women are typically associated with undesirable adolescent behaviors rather than prompted by grades. For this reason, it is not uncommon for even a straight-A high school-aged girl to still wind up getting "the 'brush" over her mom's knee. In fact, it is perhaps not too great an exaggeration to suggest that girls headed to college are more likely to be spanked because alternative disciplinary strategies - such as grounding - tend to exclude these young women from activities necessary for stellar applications required for admission to better colleges. Of course, the chances of a young woman getting spanked also rises significantly if she is from the South or West - where spanking is both more common and accepted. At the same time, although Northern mothers profess to be opposed to spanking, they will spank their older daughters given the right circumstances.
