Stop temper tantrums and get Charlie to eat by training him.
Help your girl’s screaming, and your boy’s hitting by fixing the cause.
“My child breaks toys on purpose; my daughter is catty.” Correct the world view.
How to help when foundations are missing altogether? There are roughly three philosophies:
1. Children are disobedient. Make strict rules; enforce with disapproval and spanking.
2. Children are difficult. Fight them occasionally; hope for the best.
3. Children know best. Let them find balance of power.
The first produces automatons, the second, defiance, the third, psychopathy.
The parent has his world view, setting the child’s course. He shall get results he chose.
Thoughts are expressed as language, verbal and body, building belief, the blueprint of BEING. From BEING comes action, resulting in effect, which proves original thought.
Change the thought- change the result; the chain of causes and effects as dynamic as nuclear fusion. Results always reinforce the thought.
So, think WELL.
What kind of thoughts will you choose?
