My son was speeding on the roadway, trying to reach his office on time, for an early assignment. I hate it when my children haven’t planned their timing properly. They put themselves in chaos, rushing on things, especially on the road.
Quite often as a parent, I find myself in disappointment and disagreement with how they do things. But I guess that’s only normal for any parent.
Over the years, I have learned to control my anger and resentment, having to say sorry and explain my actions later, during my interactions with my children. But nevertheless, as a point of discipline and order at home, my silence speaks much and when my children ‘hear’ it, they know that there’s something they need to put in order or rectify in their actions!
Talk in all times, but let your silence be known in times! Remember, you can’t collect back those words you have thrown in an uncontrolled moment, once said, they remain out there. Silence is often the best cure for most troubles!
