I remember the quote of an author, who writes-
”Children begin by loving their parents. After
a time,they judge them. Rarely if ever, do they
forgive them.” Try to understand their feelings.
If they do mischiefs, do not punish them harshly
or inflict insults upon them in front of others and
hurt their self respect. Children are very sensitive
and will not forgive you after they grow up into adults.
If they misbehave with you or respect not you, try to
remember whether you had hurt their sentiments during
their childhood days. Parents, forget not that insult injures
and breaks the tender heart of a child. Know that absence
of love of parents may cause a child to grow up into an
aggressive or depressive youth. Try to describe the child
about the harmful effects of mischiefs caused by him or her
and persuade the child that s/he would be rewarded suitably for
good behaviour at every week end.Love and patience only can bring
the desired transformation in a mischievous child.
