I see a lot of young people here. I wish you good luck when you have your children. I never believe in physical punishment or not given opportunity to my children. But I believe in rules, most young generations feel offended because of that. Put yourselves in any parents shoes.
You know. I grew up knowing that adults are always right. It's not even subjective or whatever. I believe this set a strong reverence for humans. When we start treating each other as equals is where the problem starts, because it opens discussions. Then you get disobedience
Parents over forty struggle to wrap their heads around such a fact Especially black parents whew they always wanna be right, I remember we told our mom how she hurt us And somehow she ended up being the victim, how idk. My mom would rather eat a bag of nails than to apologise.
I do this with my students all the time. I learnt it from my dad. He always apologised to us and gave reasons for 'nos'. I also let them know I don't know everything. So, when they ask some questions, I tell them I'll get back to them as I'll need more research to answer well.
My family literally look at me in disgust when I do this with my son . & my response is always “ this why none of y’all kids like y’all & all moved away or barely talk to y’all now. “ wrong is wrong . I ain’t running my child away . Been there & done that.
