A child drops a toy which then breaks into pieces. The father yells at the child, in front of his friends for breaking an expensive toy.
Well, toys are not meant to last long. A new toy can be purchased. But how does a child feel when his father yells at him in front of his friends for breaking a toy.
How will this child grow up ? What values does he pick up from his father ? – That toys are more important than his own feelings.
For many in this material world, objects are more valued than someone else’s feelings.
It is the duty of parents to build them, not tear them. Yelling has never solved any problem. It is an unwanted behavior children learn which they carry forward in their teen age and adult hood.
If parents understand that they are not perfect, how do they expect children to be ?
And what about the damage done to the child. The child grows up thinking that toys were more important than them and that it is okay to hurt someone’s feeling but not okay to break toys.
