Many mothers are quick to spank a child or yell at them as a form of discipline. And it’s not completely wrong, but what is wrong is when that’s our easy-to-go-to method when we correct our children.
Emotional and Intimate conversations are not our go-to method when it comes to correcting a child, and that’s understandable because society paints a picture of weakness when you come off as intimate and emotional.
But ever wondered that maybe, just maybe; all your child needs to see is that part of you so he/she can grasp the sincerity and seriousness of the message/lesson you are trying to pass on.
Spank a child more often than not, and watch them slowly close off and shut you out.
Dear Moms, sometimes spanking isn’t the answer. Most often, a child wants to hear you softly correct him/her, wants to hear you go all out and just listen. Yes, you are the parent but beyond that, you can be a friend.
So next time, you are quick to respond to disciplining your child by spanking, simply take a moment to re-evaluate and think if spanking will birth the desired results.
