Parental Responsibility

Post by DaveG » Sat Nov 24, 2018 9:31 pm

I keep hearing people that want to use corporal punishment or wonder why in these time discipline is not working. One has to add the difficulty with this is the parents come from a different generation where quite likely they had firm discipline under much tougher circumstances.
Today, if you look at studies on families, the ones that do the best is where there is love, understanding and compassion. If you are close to your child, it is a fact that they are less likely to do something that is in conflict with what they have learned.
Having said that...even with love, if the child ends up following the wrong crowd, this may easily undermine the former.
In summary, I think as parents all we can do is do our best and hope that it is enough.Image
