98. My parents differed on this ... my father preferred corpral punishments ...
mom wanted to talk about it.

As I suggest in other parts of this thread, corporal punishment is the lazy path. Its quick, and generally effective in the immediate term. Talking about what happened takes longer, more thought, and leads to further reasoned discussions later.

Corporal tends to be 2 smacks and you're done.

And so, with one parent who is "lazy" and one who wants to talk it all over, the lazy one tends to back out. "Fine, you deal with it".

If BOTH parents are into corporal, then they work off each other ... if the parents are split on this, there is some relief, and if both are anti-corporal, then they work together on how to act consistently.
