Clint and Chelsea stress in their packet that CDD should only practiced by consenting adults and that the Ho H should never punish while angry.
‘If the Ho H 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.’ ‘I wanted the spankings to stop and my husband told me it was either DD and marriage or 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.
