Slapping Your Kids

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?

    True Shreya. So really true. I understand that parents can get angry, anyone can, but hitting/slapping and being abusive would just result in another problem, emotional distance from their own children. While it’s necessary to show then the right path, it can be done by talking to them, not by hitting them. You conveyed the message wonderfully!!

    Btw, did you see my comment on your last post? The star kids one? I think you missed it….

    Have a wonderful day Shreya💖❤❤

    Some very good points; it’s one of those tricky conundrums; the art of maintaining discipline without losing your patience and resorting to violence. Parents, teachers; many in society have struggled with this, often with the best of intentions and fallen short. Society without discipline leads to feral youth and anarchy, yet violence loses the argument every time and causes resentment. The truth is that most of us aren’t perfect, and will make mistakes, but I believe if the intention and relationship is rooted in love, you’ll probably get there in the end. When my son used to misbehave in the car as a young child , I would stop the car, ask my wife to drive back and I would walk the rest of the journey home. It led to some pretty long walks, but it was the only way I could get him to behave without losing my temper. Yet I can fully understand why someone else’s reaction to a dangerous situation might be a sharp rap on the behind. I had the cane at school only once, but I made sure it never happened again, and as unpleasant as that experience was, the school maintained pretty much perfect discipline and lessons were taught effectively and teachers were deferred to. When I hear stories about children today who will swear at teachers, threaten female staff and bully other children with impunity, I do wonder if the pendulum has swung too far the other way….

      Maybe… We never know. Rasing a kid, be it as a parent or a teacher isn’t easy. Like how do you sculpt a person to be their very best?… 😬

    The things that we teach to a lil child has the tendency to get etched in the mind forever! I do agree that the children need to be protected and they need to be taught the right and wrong. But slapping /hitting for doing the wrong thing is not just the way!! They should be told the reason behind doing the wrong things. Creating fear in them by using a violent approach does nothing but worsens it even more!!
    Comparing with a slow corrosive acid…was good one.
    Good work Shreya💜✨💫

  14. You’ve acknowledged a very important issue that still goes on today, communication is everything, that’s the only way to make someone understand the consequences to their actions.
