Parents and guardians have to choose the right way to discipline their wards because some behaviors we take towards children is like an abuse of power, it can affect a childs behavior physically and mentally and can make some to be stubborn due to strict punishment.
I boarded a taxi back from work and inside the taxi there was a lady who was trying to discipline her child for going against her order, instead of cautioning the child softly she was shouting at the child using abusive words on the child without even minding the environment she was, the people inside the taxi couldn't keep quiet but spoke up and told the lady that it wasn't the best way to talk to the child. As a mom or dad if your child or wards do something wrong it won't do any good shouting at your child or using offensive and abusive words on that child because these can affect the child in a negative way.
Some kids had the ability to be smart but due to bad up bringing or training they become dull mentally. They way we train our kids can help sharpen their future and make them great leaders of tomorrow and also can destroy the child's future. Be humble and caring towards your children or wards, also respect them so that they will feel safe with you and obey you.
