thank you for your time and talent on the story

Awesome job :)... needs detail on the actual spankings though...
Alex chapter 1 . 3/22/2016
I wish you would have actually done the spanking, and not just what it looked like afterwards.

Disgusting abusive behaviour! Hitting a child like that, lazy, abusive parenting!

Aww, sweet that John is willing to buy the calf back for his children:)

Such a heartfelt story, this was. Thanks for writing it and for sharing it too. John's reluctance to discipline really came through, and I especially like how the story closed with comfort for the children and a promise to save the calf. It was a true Waltons ending :)

Very good! I enjoyed it a lot. I can picture this happening and can see the charactors. You captured them perfectly. The only thing, I don't know if John would have spanked them bare bottomed or not. I think he would have spanked them over their nightgowns. Those gowns wouldn't have provided much protection, and I'm sure John had a firm hand.

There was a later seasons episode where an actual spanking was referenced. Jim Bob reminded Elizabeth of a spanking she had gotten because Erin had gotten her blamed for something she did. I think Erin had broken the car window and got Elizabeth blamed. John hauled Elizabeth out to the smokehouse. I would love for you to write a story about that.

If you want to totally make up one, my favorite would be one about John spanking Erin. As a little kid though, not when she was older.

Yes, this is what should have happened on the show. In a true family of the time period, it would have happened just as you wrote it. Stealing, running off, trying to hide the calf, worrying their family would have caused their Father to warm their backsides! Please write more stories like this.

I don't usually encourage violence but I kinda wished this had happened in the show. I mean they stole a cow which was a serious crime.
