It's summer time. For those with school age kids, finding "alone time" for domestic discipline and other adult activities may have become even more challenging.
But, what about those whose child rearing days have come and gone? According to the last demographic poll we did, a large majority of our readers are over 50, though with the rise of the Millennial "failure to launch" generation, I realize it certainly is not a given that even "adult" kids will actually get out from of the house and on to bigger and better things. But, some of you out there have gone through the long-anticipated arrival of "empty nest." For moms and dads into domestic discipline, perhaps for the first time in years there is real privacy and real flexibility regarding the time and place for DD activities. For those who have had or wanted the wife to take over as a 24/7 Head of Household, perhaps concerns about the kids observing that more explicit command structure have suddenly been removed.
So, this is a question for the older domestic discipline practitioners among us. What impact did the children leaving your home have on your DD relationship? Did spankings become more frequent? Did a previously timid spouse suddenly step fully into the role of HoH or disciplinarian? Tell us all about the changes.

Finally, I am going to be stuck in some concentrated work activity next week and may be slower than usual to approve incoming comments. Sorry for the inconvenience.
