Many readers, both Dominants and submissives, send me messages asking about submissive or slave training. They want to know if there is a "correct" way to do it. I always tell them with respect, compassion, and deep understanding of the individual person and situation. I believe that just as every person is different, every situation is also. You have to adapt training to fit your submissive's personality, as well as your relationship and lifestyle. If your sub/slave is a brat, you will usually end up giving harsher and more frequent punishments.
