A parent marches over to a child who has misbehaved in some way. The parent clearly does not like what just happened and it shows. The footsteps increase in pace and in strength as the child winces.
“Im going to teach you a lesson, young man!”
When has it ever been a positive thing when someone says about a kid, “I’m going to teach that kid a lesson!” Maybe the best thing to do is look for opportunities to “teach a kid a lesson” when they have done something good. Think about that. Think about how many more “lessons” can be learned if you dont sit around and wait for the bad moments to happen.
