Let’s talk about Disobedience
If just now you take sweet you will no more have appetite for food. It is not proper for you to go to bed without dinner!
When you shirk doing what your parents wish for you, then this is named disobedience or insubordination.
If your father and mother tell you what to do and what not, they definitely have a reason for that.
Therefore, it is not in your interest to disobey them
I told you not to touch the Sweets.
I hope you shall not have disobeyed!
If your father and mother tell you what to do and what not, it is because they do not want that you or others meet with an accident or mishap
My son! I had told you not move out towards the road!
If your father and mother tell you what to do and what not, it is for the reason that they do not want that you damage your properties or that of others.
I had told you not to play with it in that way!
When your Papa and Mama tell you what to do and what not it is for the reason that they do want others to love you.
They do not want to play with me
I had told you that if you want that children may play with you, you must be kind to them!
Your father and mother wish that you must treat others justly and equitably!
I had told you to gather up your game ware. It is not justified that,
after your game, you leave them there for others to gather and arrange
Your Papa and Mama direct you about what to do and what not to do because they love you. They pay regard to your friends as well. In spite of that sometimes you ask yourselves:
-- Why must my parents always tell me what to do?
-- Can I not choose my own way?
--Why must my parents rule over me!
-- Can I not be my own boss?
It is better that your parents guide you about what to do and what not to do, than yourself experimenting things. They are older than you and on this account they are wiser than you. Since they have a led a longer life than you, therefore, they have spent more time to learn. As they know the things more than you they usually guide you as to what suits you.
I knew that if you touch the oven your hand would burn. This is the reason I wanted you not to touch it.
It is suitable for you and in your own interest that your father mother tell you what to do because they are responsible for you. It you do something which God forbid harms you or others they would be held responsible for it and must pay for the loss and damages incurred.
How much would be the doctor’s fees for the treatment of my son’s hand?
To make sure that you obey the orders of your Papa and Mama they may possibly fix punishments and may even punish and reprimand you, in case you disobey them. It is possible that as an effect of punishment you may get displeased and repeat upon disobedience and the bad deed which you have committed. This thing will become the cause of your not committing disobedience any more.
I wish my Papa had not taken my tricycle from me just because I rode it on the road. If he returns me my tricycle I will no more use it on the road. I do not wish him to take back my tricycle!
It is better that you try to remember the following points so that you do not get punished.
Always keep in view that your father and mother want you to do.
-- Always remember those things which your father and mother do not what you to perform.
-- Listen carefully to the instructions of your father mother. When they talk to you, concentrate all your attention upon what they say.
-- Be sure that you understand the words and conversation of your father and mother thoroughly. For that purpose it is better that you do not follow what they mean, then question them.
My son I don’t want you to eat that chocolate before dinner.
If you do not agree with your parents upon a matter then do not cry and uselessly strike your body to the ground. Talk to them kindly, politely and in a peaceful tone. Give them a chance to think over your demand. May be they change their decision but if this does not occur never at all continue insisting. You insistence, may become the cause of their annoyance and your own disturbance.
Although it is before dinner but can’t I take a little of this chocolate?
Just a little of it?
No… even a little of this chocolate may possibly finish your appetite for the dinner.
When you have fully understood what is that your father and mother expect from you. Then carefully do what they wish from you.
If by chance, a particular disobedience is committed by you, do not at all tell a lie before your father and mother. Lying always worsen the difficulties. In such cases follow the underlying points:
Always tell the fact to your parents.
Offer them apologise from the core of your heart.
Do accept your punishment instead of being unhappy with that.
Remember that your punishment is due to your own disobedience.
Try not to disobey anymore.
Did you eat some of the chocolate even after I told you not to eat?
Yes…. Only one chunk!
Very well!... Now when you have disobeyed you will not have the right to eat the rest of it, give it to me!
When your obey your father and mother you please them and besides rest assured that whatever you do in that connection is in your interest.
