Hi everyone,

Granddaddy suggests two valuable lesson for 2016 about punishing and whipping children..

The lesson is that, if parents who mistakenly punish or discipline children, they should admit it to their children and say they made a mistake and ask for forgiveness. That is not a sign of weakness, it is a sign of strength and a method to teach children honesty, humility, the ability to admit when they make a mistake, apologize for saying or doing wrong, and a largeness to ask an offender to forgive. Those traits help make good men and good women and, therefore, this is the family strengthener Granddaddy almost taught all black families, but we can still use the lesson.

Moreover, our family story teaches a second family lesson. Parents should check all information reported to them about their children. The speaker could be jealous of the family or shame of their own behavior. So, it pays for parents to listen and weigh everything, including a single word spoken to them about their children. Sometimes, friends can be determining whether parents know wrong behavior about their child and, if they do not, they rejoice because they know such behavior will cause the child and the family to “fall.” That happened with me about my daughter. The key is conversation and impenetrable tracking of children and, therefore, every home should be in the child rearing stage from conception, until the last child reaches 18 years of age.

Hence, again, even the slightest information, any single word or question that parents hear, about their children, should be weighed and used correctly.
