Weekly Recap: October 21st - 27th


Our Mailbag Monday column returned this week after a one week hiatus to observe Columbus Day (a United States holiday).  We also wrapped up Domestic Violence Awareness Month with a post that challenges you to ask (and answer) 13 questions about how the domestic discipline dynamic operates in your relationship.  Did you miss anything this week?  Don't worry -- we'll get you all up to speed.

Here are the three latest posts if you happened to miss any of them.


Mailbag Monday: Week 25 - We offer our opinions on when we feel new punishment options should be introduced in a DD relationship, how frequently maintenance spankings should be conducted, and when to "try out" new implements in this week's round of reader submitted Mailbag Monday questions.

13 Domestic Discipline vs. Domestic Violence Questions - Chelsea gives you 13 questions to ask yourself about your domestic discipline relationship.  Do any of them apply to the way things operate between you and your partner?  Does your DD dynamic resemble a domestic violence situation?  These questions will help clarify things and hopefully illustrate just how different DD and DV truly are from one another.

Five Things Friday: The Halloween Edition - We talk about our trip to the annual North Carolina State Fair, we share what costume our 2-year old son is going to wear on Halloween, and we share a great website that covers all your Halloween needs in this week's Five Things post.  Happy Halloween!

  • The November LDD Newsletter will be sent out on November 1st, 2013.  You can join the free mailing list right here. (Your email address is not used for any other purpose)
That wraps up another week, and basically another month, at Learning Domestic Discipline!  We hope everyone has a very safe and very happy Halloween!  Onward we go into November.  Come along, won't you?

Weekly Recap: October 14th - 20th


Thanks to a holiday, the past week featured just two new LDD posts.  There was no Mailbag Monday this week, but we have a wonderful article from a guest writer to share with you.  We also have a new punishment option for domestic discipline couples to consider.

Let's recap the week that was here at Learning Domestic Discipline.


Monday was the United States holiday of Columbus Day.  In observance of Columbus Day, we did not post a Mailbag Monday article this week.  Mailbag Monday will return as scheduled this upcoming week.

Additional Domestic Discipline Punishments: Written Reports/Essays - We've covered a lot of punishments on LDD, but one we've overlooked is written reports/essays.  This post tells you all about them, and gives an example to show what context this punishment would be used in.

Saturday Stories: "I'm a DD Wife, Not a Doormat" - Our guest writer shares a story that shows how domestic discipline is meant to be lived.  She isn't treated like a doormat, she makes it clear she is protected and loved - the way it should be.

  • The Learning Domestic Discipline November Newsletter will be sent out on Friday, November 1st! If you aren't on our mailing list yet, and want to receive the newsletter, sign up by clicking here.

Weekly Recap: October 7th - 13th


It was a great week at Learning Domestic Discipline.  We do our best to help others learn about the domestic discipline lifestyle each week, but this week it was us that was doing the learning.  We interviewed a wonderful couple that incorporates the Female-Led (or Wife-Led) domestic discipline dynamic into their marriage, and we found it to be very interesting and insightful.  We hope you do as well.

Of course, we also answered three more of your Mailbag Monday questions, and Chelsea shared some really helpful sites/articles in her Five Things post.  If you missed any of it, here's a recap of the week that was at LDD.


Mailbag Monday: Week 24 - How would we react if one of us didn't want to practice domestic discipline anymore?  How do you handle a partner that acts out on purpose?  We answer these questions and more in this week's Mailbag Monday post.

An Interview With a Couple in a Female-Led Domestic Discipline Relationship - Kathy and Gary, a couple in a Wife-Led Marriage, open up to us in a candid interview about their unique domestic discipline dynamic.  We learned a lot from them, and we think you will as well.  Many thanks go out to Kathy and Gary for being so gracious.

Five Things Friday: Fall Changes Edition - Chelsea shares an article that helps submissive partners with obedience, we welcome a new blogger to the domestic discipline community, and we're working on a project that we need your help with.  Do you think you can help us out?

  • As we mentioned in last week's 5 Things post, if you're a couple in an "alternative domestic discipline relationship" (such as The Spencer Plan dynamic, the Christian Domestic Discipline dynamic, and more) or if there's something unique about the way you practice domestic discipline, we'd love for you to reach out to us and help us out with an upcoming project. Click here to contact us. 
  • We'll be doing another FAQ podcast next month. If you have questions you'd like to see featured, now's your chance to submit them! You can submit your questions by clicking here.
That wraps up another week!  We hope you'll continue to be with us next week and beyond.  See you then!

Weekly Recap: September 30th - October 6th


What a week it has been here at Learning Domestic Discipline.  We kicked off October with a brand new podcast!  It's a fun one too, as we answer a number of questions from LDD readers.  We really enjoyed recording this one.  In fact, we enjoyed it so much that we'll be doing more podcasts just like it!  You can find the link to submit your podcast questions at the bottom of this article.  We're looking forward to it!
A new podcast wasn't the only new content this week.  Check out the three new posts added to LDD for your reading pleasure this week.


Mailbag Monday: Week 23 - We answer questions about apprehensive HoHs when it comes to spanking, handling and preventing bruising from spanking, and what's forthcoming for Learning Domestic Discipline in this week's Mailbag Monday post.

FAQs Podcast #1 - On the latest LDD podcast we answer several questions we regularly get asked, as well as several questions from LDD readers!  It's the first of what we hope to be several interactive podcasts, and like the other LDD podcasts, it's completely free to download.  Stop on by the downloads site and give it a listen!

Saturday Stories: "Comparing Domestic Violence and Domestic Discipline" - This week's Saturday Story is a unique and powerful one.  It was submitted by a woman who is not currently in a domestic discipline relationship, and she explains how she came to respect those of us that practice domestic discipline after initially jumping to a very negative conclusion about it.  It's quite the story. 

  • The calendar has moved to October, and we think you're really going to like October's Couples Challenge. :)
  • We're taking questions for the next FAQs podcast, so if you'd like to submit a question for us to answer on the next recording, you can submit them here.
  • Don't forget you can submit Mailbag Monday questions too, and we'd also love to feature your story in our Saturday Stories column.
Onward and upward to next week!  We'll see you next time...
