SPARE THE ROD AND SPOIL THE CHILD

Children usually have the tendency to do naughty things. At times naughtiness will turn out harmful. A child who grows up with the feel­ing that for anything he does he will go unpunished, may cause equal harm to himself and to others at a later stage. It is always better to punish children whenever they are found guilty. There are parents who refrain from punishing their children whenever they commit serious mischief’s, just because they love them. This approach only makes Jove all the more meaningless.
