Hi, we’re Clint and Chelsea. Welcome to Learning Domestic Discipline!
The trend is called Christian Domestic Discipline and much of what is known about the practice is published on the website Learning Domestic Discipline, published by husband and wife CDD duo, Clint and Chelsea.
The website states: ‘It is an arrangement between two adults who share the belief that the husband is the head of the household and with that position comes the right to enforce his authority.’
Clint and Chelsea have also written a 50-page packet on the practice called Beginning Domestic Discipline.
Their FAQ is amazing and it got nothing to waste….
Being “submissive” is more of a mindset than it is a behavior. A submissive partner needs to be mentally willing to give over the “control” of the final decisions and the direction of the relationship/marriage to their HoH. That takes a huge amount of trust, and it’s not easy. It’s an enormous step in the grand scheme of things, but it can be eased into with small steps.
Keep reading, it got more interesting….
Q- My girlfriend/wife is experiencing her cycle right now. Her attitude is terrible and her behavior is slipping. How should I handle this?
A- We understand emotions can get a little off balance during a woman’s cycle. Women can get irritable, rude, testy, disrespectful, among other things during their cycle….It isn’t a “no rules for a week” card to be redeemed every month.
A hairbrush is one of the listed items sanctioned for spanking on in the Beginning Domestic Discipline packet, a wooden spoon is another spanking tool. In the packet, Clint and Chelsea warn that one of the cons with this tool is that it ‘can break easily’
Corporal punishment at home obviously leads to questions about whether or not this is domestic abuse. Clint and Chelsea stress in their packet that CDD should only practiced by consenting adults and that the HoH should never punish while angry.
‘If the HoH becomes angry, they must do whatever it takes to get themselves back to a calm, reasonable, rational, level-headed, and collected state before making any decision or carrying out any punishment.’
But as evidenced on many forums dedicated to CDD, the practice has turned violent in cases.
‘I wanted the spankings to stop and my husband told me it was either DD and marriage or divorce. I chose divorce. I couldn’t handle the pain of spankings anymore, emotionally or physically,’ a woman named Michelle wrote on a popular CDD blog found in reporting by The Daily Beast.
What’s scarier is how little fear is expressed in these forums.
