PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, April 12th, 2011 by Vimala McClure in THE TAO OF MOTHERHOOD

“Many parents discover too late that one cannot raise children well with punishment as the core of discipline. Hit your child and eventually the child’s rage will be greater than you censure. Prisons are filled with “well-disciplined” people.

A good parent helps a child to learn how his behavior affects his own life through natural consequences. This is how true inner discipline is cultivated. A master carpenter cuts cleanly and quickly and makes furniture which endures. When you deliver harsh, judgmental consequences, you are trying to do nature’s job. Like an inexperienced carpenter, you are bound to make a mess of it and only hurt yourself.
