Children's Day is every day. Are you a moron?! Which part don't you understand?!!!!! You make me tired!!!!

I've got some news for you. The boys are reasoning. They understand. They respond to logic.

Editorial
Sunday was Children's Day, and once again it seems to be the only day of the year when we honour children. While I accuse modern parents of supplanting quality time with extravagant gifts, we can also criticize the former parents for delegating education to mothers and the latter for understanding education in a personal way, without attending to the wishes of the children. In any case, the result is similar: not sharing, not playing, not giving love the way the kids need it. I invite you to read about Montessori education, which you know much more about than I do. Its basis is to think of each human being as a child as what he or she is: a unique person. Every day, I see mothers walking their children and smoking. It's going to be hard for your kids not to be more likely to die of cancer than mine. Because, we know, kids follow the example and not the words. Too often, I see mothers and fathers mistreating their children. Slamming, shouting, hitting, letting them cry, tantrums and kicking. We live in a violent society. We come from twenty years of state violence against the citizen, and that's what people tend to do. We are much more intolerant and much less patient. And, on the other hand, retrograde. With thoughts like "A good slap in the face in time..." he corrects behaviors. We're so primitive, we think, since we were raised to be flip-flops, that's fine. He's a word overcomer. Well. It's hard not to live in a violent country, if we hit the kids for ignoring them. Many times, to something that is a whim of his own. Aside from the cowardice of hitting someone in an inferior position, what do you think this generates in the children, as well as feelings of injustice and impotence and, perhaps, revenge? I've got some news for you. The boys are reasoning. They understand. They respond to logic. Of course, it's easier to slap than five minutes of explanations. Things we sometimes can't explain to ourselves. Is it so hard to give a hug and a kiss to a boy who cries? Which, by the way, is your own son.... Is it so hard to ask why you have a tantrum and reason? You: how would you prefer to be treated by your boss? As an asshole every time you're wrong? Or beaten up if you don't understand something? I repeat: kids follow the example, not the word. And they see everything, as beings of light that they are. [democracy id="61"]
