Do we really need the rod?

Posted by Everyday Healy on November 29, 2007

I guess caning kids had never been the culture of my family. Even as early as my grandfather, he never cane my mum. And, of course, my mum never cane me as well. However, we still have cane in the house. But, that doesn’t mean we have to really cane our kids. In fact, the cane is mostly used to frighten the dog.

I will give you a good example why we shouldn’t cane our children. My hubby has been cane by her mum when he was a boy. And, he practically tell me every now and then that he will never do that to his girl. And, as for me, I feel proud of my mum every time when people told me they’ve been cane by their parents during their young days.

Just ask yourself a simple question before you use the cane, if you believe canning can solve the problem.

” Do you like people to cane you?”

“If your answer is no. Then, do you still expect your kids to forgive you for canning them?”

I believe there are so many other ways to discipline our kids. It is not necessary to use cane. I still strongly believe that our kids will appreciate it so much as they grow up, if you never cane them. At least, I did.

I guess that’s it. That’s what I want to share here. Thanks to Judy Chow and shoppingmum.
