There Is Really No Need To Speak To Children In A Haughty Manner

It is a little unsettling to know that in the twenty-first century there are still people who treat children poorly. It’s as though some of the adults are the masters and some of the children are the servants.

One of the things that I am not too pleased about is: the manner in which some adults speak to their children. On many occasions, I have heard a parent or a grown-up relative speaking harshly at a child; which I believe is unnecessary and equally disrespectful. Just because a person has seniority where age is concerned, still doesn’t justify their behaviour towards the child.

I often ask myself, “What is wrong with this picture?” And, “Are these adults conscious of their behavioural patterns when they are committing atrocities against these children?”

There are even schoolteachers in the educational system that sound like army drill-sergeants whenever they speak to their students in the classroom.

I am of the opinion that you can speak to a child in a loving and gentle manner and still maintain discipline in the household and at school.

We are all aware that children learn from example; and what kind of examples are these adults setting to begin with?

Who said that it was a rule to speak down to a child? The truth is: no rule like that exists! I think that the problem stems from some adults believing that they are superior to the children in their care.

In the near future, I am hoping that some kind-hearted psychologist decides to create a program consisting of re-educating adults who fall short ethically, in the method of speaking and treating children in a humane manner.

I also believe that the young starseeds are fully aware of the problem and that some of them would be most instrumental in the creation of positive changes.

  1. So true! I treat my 4 year old granddaughter with respect and she sure does respond to it! <3

  2. yes ,What you have expressed is truth, Due to ignorance, in addition with ego of the individual play a dominant role. with his limited Knowledge what he acquired with status, his surrounding atmospheric relationship with community and its conditions .Treatment will be varied. Hence one should be self realized that, the entire universe created by the creator with unique characters . One should realize that they have already completed their one incarnation before coming to as their children .Then only the treatment will be varied.

  3. Often adults set a bad example to children who only copy what they see. Using violence against children is also bad.

  4. I so agree with you – my eldest son when he was little always liked people if they had a “nice” voice

  5. Yes, the way some adults behave towards children is astonishing. And usually if they behave like that with children it extends to all others as well, including animals. It is the idea of one person being superior or having power over another which is at work and that is very disturbing.
