I can still recall the sensation of my mother's fingernails digging into the flesh of my upper arm as she left her cart in the aisle, marched my butt out to the parking lot and took me home and punished me (not by spanking--I can't remember what she did, but I remember those fingernails!).

In this day and age, one of the "spectators" would see you dig your fingernails into your child's arm and would be calling DCFS on you.
