Advice or Punishment?

“There is no fear in love but perfect drives out fear” I john 4:8

It is a normal thing that you discipline your children in your own way or ethics and it will depend on how you discipline your children. It is a matter of choice, if you choose to discipline your child in calmest way so that there will be no hatreds and heartaches that the child may carry, or to choose to discipline them through punishments. Now the question is, what disciplinary act you are using now?

“What is the lesson that the child may get if we, parents will always advice them? They should be punished so that the wrong deeds will no longer be done.” Answered by a parent when I have interviewed them if what disciplinary act they are using to discipline their child. Through that answer I have realized that there are still parents believed that through punishments the child will get a lesson. Then I have asked myself that why? Why they always give a punishment to their children knowing the fact that they know that it really hurts.

Respect your parents. What they tell you is true. Hard work, dedication and faith will get you anything. Imagination will drive itself. You can get anything you want, but you have to have faith behind all your ideas. Stick to your goals and have an undying faith. -Russell Simmons

On the other hand, if the parents will discipline their children in calmest way they can promote peace inside their house and I know through advising them there will be no hatreds and heartaches that may build but their is a chance that the child may abuse his/her and do the same thing as what they have done before.

The most important thing that parents can teach their children is how to get along without them. -Frank A. Clark

Advice or punishment either of these two are still a disciplinary actions that are using by our parents and we cannot manipulate it because parents knows best. As a son or daughter of our parents, it is our job and responsibility to follow our parents. Since it is a matter of choice, it will depend to you if you choose to follow them or not and it will depend to you if you want an advice or punishment. We need to remember that no matter what will happen in the end were still experiencing the experiences that our parents experienced throughout their journey.
