Do you think it’s alright,
To slap your child, once while?
To teach them wrong and right,
And bring them back in line.
While it’s crucial to correct them,
Beware, you’re harming them.
Destroying the bond you could have,
Creating situations very grave.
The fear you instill in your kids,
Keep them from approaching you.
It’s like a slow corrosive acid,
Your relationship, it will screw.
You can make many excuses,
For this old parenting technique.
But understand the dire consequences,
Ones that shall make you shriek.
Here’s a seed you have sown,
Slaps are how love is shown.
For your kid’s abusive relationship,
Can you take the responsibility?
