If you want to set someone on the right path, to teach and advise them, first you must be humble and speak to them with great love. They’ll welcome your advice, because they’ll feel that it’s been given with love. But if you want to impose yourself, you’ll get nowhere. That’s how you build up resentment in your child. If children are disobedient, the answer isn’t to ‘give them a good hiding’.
