Parenting in Jesus' Footsteps

Hitting Is Not Patient

by Susan Lawrence

Hitting is not patient; hitting is not kind; hitting is arrogant and rude and adults who hit children are insisting on their own way. Adults who hit children are irritable and resentful; they punish what they perceive as wrongdoing, instead of rejoicing in the truthful nature of children. Adults who hit children cannot bear, or believe in, or find hope in, or endure the normal behavior of children.

Hitting should end.
