4 If I ran out of money, I would sometimes “borrow” some from my mother’s purse.

5 Sometimes I wished my Dad would just give me a smack. It would have been better than listening to him going on about “responsibility”.

6 I can remember the first time I stood up to my Dad. He wanted to punish me for coming back after midnight when I was 15 but I just told him I wasn’t a child any longer and he couldn’t tell me what to do.

7 I don’t exactly look down on my parents who smack their children, but I do think that they could find other ways of disciplining their children if they really thought about it.

B to escape without punishment

C to consider inferior

D to think about something in the past

E to become too old to do something

I to abolish
