Discipline & Respect

10 July 2014, 18:35
Today divorce is nothing but a word that people throw around whenever things don't go their way. South Africa's younger generation does not seem to care about marriage anymore as they hear and even live through the experience. When have we forgotten to teach our children what is right and what is wrong? 

Do you think that teachers or day care centres are responsible for your child being so rude or disobedient? STOP blaming others and take responsibilities for your children's behaviour. 

A hiding to the bum while they young or verbal discipline has results and your children will respect you as they get older.Due to our countries silly laws, some parents are faced with their children turning on them and telling them their rights!! Running away from home or even hitting back.Would you allow anyone to come into your house and swear, shout, scream or hit you. without beating them and throwing them out.? So why allow a minor who has no respect do those things?

Our younger generation are becoming rebellious and unruly, lacking discipline and respect for their elders. Wanting to leave the house with out being married!!! No, it was never allowed. Why? To protect your precious daughters or sons from being hurt, living in the street or worse. You leave my house, the day you married. Should Consent, it is because i know that they will be safe with their partner.

Teach your children what's right and what's wrong. Do not think that letting them become their own person is the way.You need to mold them and show them the path that is most safest.

God said. " My People Perish, for lack of knowledge."That is the truth, we live in a shack or on the streets because we never knew better. We divorce because we never knew that we had to forgive first before discussing with our partner.We just grab those blue papers and good luck to you.

No. Our children can not be such wimps to run away and not face the problem. They need to learn that, should a problem arise, we need to find out why it started and find a solution for it, before discussing the consequences. 
South Africa's younger Generation are growing up with out any respect. Make a change, teach them that our forefathers were silly men, power hungry and really really naive. That our forefathers struggled and slaved to the European rule. ( NOT THE WHITE MANS RULE) 

Show them that having one partner in life is better than three and contracting HIV. Give them Wisdom and see their success as they remember your teachings and discipline.
