She told me a second time and I again refused. She called my father up from the yard and told him that I was defying her by refusing to remove my drawers. He grabbed me and threw me face down on the bed. He put my mother sitting on one of my arms. He then took off my shoes and socks and tied my feet to the top of the metal frame at the end of the bed. He looked at the cane my mother was going to use and said "too thick". He went off and came back after a few minutes. He started beating my bare feet and shouting "now will you remove your drawers". My mother was saying " Good man Jack" every time he struck a blow with the thin rod. I was screaming and trying to reach my drawers with my free hand but it was no good because I still had my pinafore on. My brothers and sisters could hear all the shouting and screaming and thought our mother and father had gone mad. In our house my father punished my brothers and my mother punished us. My mother nearly always beat us on the hands with a cane like at school. My father used a studded belt or sometimes a stick to wallop my brothers so beating the feet was very unusual. I don't think my parents meant it to be as severe as it was. They never did it again.

That was a very severe punishment. My parents never beat us on the hands or feet. It was always on the bare bottom. I would never have dared to defy my mother. She always announced at the start how many spanks were to be given. If there was any delay the punishment would be increased. You had 15 seconds to get into position once you were told to go over the scroll of the couch. that meant getting skirts up and knickers down rapidly without time to worry about the embarrassment or pain. Most parents that time would have dealt severely with defiance. They would think they had failed as parents if their children didn't obey them.

A diagonal cane stroke given across the parallel cane strokes already delivered, it was severe and very painful.
Wouldn't that be likely to break the skin?

The more I read of this the more it sounds like a North Korea-style brainwashing.

I didn't really intend to be defiant. I was stunned when I was told to remove my drawers. I hadn't been beaten on the behind for a long time before that. I thought I had grown out of it. I thought that when I protested she would have given in and just told me to put out my hand. Caning on the hands was the usual punishment in our house. I didn't expect her to call in my father and that they would give me such a whipping. I never defied my mother again. I just accepted the cane on my bare behind and just hoped the pain and shame wouldn't last too long.
The farmyard gate would nearly always break the skin, particularly if the caning was bein administered by a big strong farmer. There would often be a permanent mark. Sometimes it would be a double gate. Five across and one diagonal, followed by the same again.

That is just savage. How could any teenager have done anything bad enough to deserve that.

It was often done for coming home late at night, smoking, drinking behaving boisterously and being seen with boys. What was worse was the "sign of the cross". Two diagonal strokes in an X at the end of a series of parallel strokes. I never went to dances till I was 21 because I was too afraid of coming home late or being reported for doing something wrong.

My mother was a very abusive women. I just think she wasn't cut out to have kids but did and took her anger out on us. We all suffered but I can remember getting ten stitches in my head when she pushed me into a table, she took medication from me and destroyed it, she would hit us with rolling pins. Her best work though she saved for when I was 12 when she had our dog put down. I wish I could cut her out of my life but I find it hard despite all she has done but she is still able to make me feel like a small terrified kid to this day.
