Radhanath Swami on Training Children-II

In contrast to giving a child what he wants, the concept of ancient Vedic education system is to train the child with love and compassion, in austerity. The child gets what is good for him. And if he behaves or demands improperly, he is given not cruel punishments but proper education out of love and genuine concern. Even for milder corrections there are investments of much greater levels of encouragement. So whenever needed proper corrections are there, but with love and compassion.

Thanks Maharaj for sharing this beautiful wisdom on parenting.The child needs our love and care above everything else.Parents do require proper guidance in bringing up their children with compassion as regards reward and punishment. Vedic wisdom is the only best solution as pointed out by you. Thank you Maharaj once again for delving in this subject matter.

    Radhanath Swami is teaching us that love and sacrifice for children builds such a strong bond between parents and children that occasionally when children have to be denied something or guided in a certain way, they respond better.
